    I press the Power button and blue light appears. That's it. From what I searched online, it's either a hardware problem or I did something to sysNAND. Last thing I did was using RxTools menu and shutting down from there. Nothing harmful was successfully installed so.... careful out there guys. Anything can mess up your consoles.

    Try removing your SD card and boot the system. That'd be the only other thing that could prevent you from booting. Otherwise, if you have a NAND backup, you may be able to reflash it.

    Did that already, nothing. Of course I have a NAND backup, the problem is how do I reflash. I don't think I have the tools to reflash it...

    yeah should be recoverable with a hardmod, if you can solder you could send it off to hundhamer to do it for you and add a port so then you can mess about with sysnand as much as you like

    What should I do? Remove the big metal thing on the back and give it to one of you or keep it under the door as a door stopper?

    Send it out to hundhamer for a hardmod, then it will work again after reflashing the 2DS

    Either fix it, or replace it. No need to remove anything. Fixing would be cheaper, while replacing it should be faster.

    I would flash it as a part of the testing process anyhow. It would come back to him fully functional.

    Ive noticed using the software power off hotkey on gateway makes my 3ds glitchy. (return 0 on a DS game shuts it down rather than return to reset screen on the next use after I do the power down. not to mention glitchy visual artifacts) Yellows 8 bricked his 3ds messing around with the MCU...

    I just wouldn't use those power off functions until we know more about them.

    i think the main question is what did you use Rxtools for, i know a few people bricked after using some of the injection features

    Who knows, there was nothing to inject. It could've been a misclick and I pressed something but at this point it's just a 2DS. I'll wait for a 9.3+ exploit for my OXL

    I'm surprised, no jokes about "rxTools is your problem".
    What firmware is your 3ds? If it's below 11.3 (the latest firm) there already are exploits to downgrade to 9.2 and either run emuNAND or continue with installing A9LH (which would prevent a sysNAND brick like this by allowing you to flash your NAND backup without hardmod).
