    what has the date to do with this ? I don't know , just asking.

    Should the date be changed even when using 2.0/3.3b? no one has reported new bricks using that firmware now

    Well there seemed to be a save bug that started happening at new year with the clones, it's unlikely, but the fact that all the bricks occurred on the same day with some people not having wifi means something must of triggered them to occur all on the same day........only thing I can think of is that it was simply triggered by the date itself....like a time bomb :S lol sounds mad but how likely would it be for around 20 3DS all to kick the bucket on the same day under the same conditions

    Interesting my current 3DS is on v4.4 and I made the date be January 11, 2013, and I use emunand 7.1 and 3DSLink 3.2 and I didn't brick my 3DS. But I think I am just going to go to version 3.3B

    Deluxe Edition firmware 3.3b is released ! (2014-01-10) [​IMG]

    change log:
    1. Fixed the saving issue caused by V3.2
    2. Fixed the breaking card issue caused by V3.2
    3. Increase the stability
    ==============
    Did they just add point 2 ?
    yes the did
    between the first release of 3.3 and new release 3.3

    also changed the loader (check loader size)
    first 3.3 release 1890KB
    latest 3.3 release 1019KB . it's same size as 2.0, because it is the 2.0 (same md5 crc)
    so why roll back to 2.0 and not 3.0 ?

    my advice wait a few days, and dont do anything
    unless you have no problems with soldering (and a nand backup)

    ================

    Anybody succeeded in restoring NAND? At least to confirm that bricking caused by flash card can be fixed by nand restore

    wait wait , is the date thing confirmed?


    maybe they started to break after new year because the 3.2 firmwares were released on 1/3 ??

    I'm also trying to fix it but I can't get connection to work - Windows sees unformatted drive, but win32diskimager/usb image tool are giving drive not ready error and and refused to read/write.
    As far as i've read in NAND thread, there's no alternative points - you have to find connection that comes from dat0

    I'm guessing that someone with skills in electronics and soldering can still help you...

    So it appears that normal 3ds is not completely immune to this also

    Will the 3ds boot with a normal DS game inserted?
    Maybe you can undo the the bricking at an early stage by removing the ds profile exploid.

    This has nothing to do with the DS mode.

    Well if it won't boot it won't boot, it would need to boot to the menu before you can launch anything.....it's probably a bug in the launcher causing it to start writing to the nand instead of reading from the SD slot, I would like to see what a dump looks like to see if it is like a obvious zero'ing or something

    Seeing as the crash is happening upon launching the exploit it's no doubt being caused by the launcher file rather than the emunand writing anything

    Although I think 2 people said there's happened after going to data management so there looks like there is 2 separate bugs happening but atleast 1 of them is avoidable.....no data managing for me lol
