    Hi guys,

    I have a 3DS RED that i tried to update to 9.0 with cia files through devmenu. All cia's imported correctly but after reboot it gives me a black screen. Anyone can help me out? I have a NAND backup

    Cheers

    Bricked then u need a nand mod. Send your 3ds to someone in your country that's trusted on this forum. if you do that you can restore your nand backup.

    I read somewhere there is a safe boot method, would that work?

    Also try to boot it without the sd card and gateway3ds inserted, The safe boot method IIRC will update your 3ds to latest version (or is that the recovery mode?).

    yes it did. i was injecting system titles to emunand (i think the brick was caused by dumping system titles)
