    I am currently up to Section II - Launching SafeB9SInstaller Part 3.

    I had just pressed start to exit udsploit and then went back into the list of Homebrew and launched safehax.

    I then entered the requested controls to initiate the process in safehax and the last thing I remember is it was in the middle of backing up, and then the power just went off (USB cable was plugged in at all times).

    I waited and then tried to power back up, the blue power light comes on briefly and then turns off and nothing happens with the screen.

    I am using the New 3DS (small version) on 11.3.0-36E.

    Is my console fucked?

    Make sure the "boot.firm" from the latest luma is on the root of your sd card.

    The light turning off means that file is missing or corrupt.

    Make sure the boot.firm is on the ROOT of your SD card. Here's an example with F: being my SD Card drive.
    F:/boot.firm
