    EDIT: IT WORKED! YEAH!!
    Thanks to everyone who helped! :toot:

    I bricked my 3DS XL! Yeah! First time for everything. :yay:

    So, I have 3 GateWay NAND backups of my system, and I'm looking to write them onto the NAND via a NAND mod. I've got a friend who is very good at soldering, and I'm just looking for a good tutorial.
    I found this. Let me know if it's good or not.
    Part 1 (Setting it up)

    Part 2 (Computer stuff)


    If you have any other video tutorials (or written tutorials), please let me know.
    Thanks!

    Sorry again, I shouldn't have told you to update sysnand with cias. :(

    It's fine, man. Now I know not to do this to update again.
    Apparently, though, if you use sysupdater to install the cias, it does work. :teach:

    I did something stupid. :shy:
    I installed the update cias from 3DNUS using the DEVMenu in the aptly titled PBT.
    I've only ever bricked a Wii, but I had Bootmii installed, so I fixed it in about 10 minutes.

    Well, the hardmod to the nand is a handy thing to have, so look on the bright side. :)

    Sadly, I can't afford to pay money for this. Even though it is only $21. :(
    I'm a college student, after all. ^_^

    That tutorial will work. Cross reference with SD card pinouts and diagrams on 3dbrew, and you'll be just fine.

    Lol dude, am not asking you to send your 3DS to her. Am asking you to PM her and ask for suggestions on how to do it, whether the videos are good, and clarify any questions you might have :)

    OK. Finished soldering. I get the blue 3DS screen (YEAH!), but when I attach it to the computer, nothing appears.
    Does this mean I messed up soldering to the SD?
    OH! That makes sense.

    She's not the only one who can help. There's gamesquest1, milerwan, or me. I've been modding 3DS's since the whole gateway brick fiasco, and PS2/xbox/wii/psp/360/ps3 much longer than that. Besides, she hasn't been around since the 8th for personal reasons.

    Got pics?

    Actually, I think I just made the cable too long. Shortening it now from 1.5 feet to 12cm.

    The computer recognized the SD card now that I shortened the cable.
    Let's write the backup!
