    Ok, look what i've done...I've got a 4.5 3ds xl. And i used to backup my emunands...Well ive got a 9.2 Nand.bin here and tryed to restore it with gateway. Well i've used the gateway menu and restored it... Well then, i restarted my 3ds and well, now all ive got is a black screen of death. I know it's stupid but i tryed anyway... Anyone here on Brazil/Sao Paulo can do the nand mod for me?. I'm no good with eletronics..I'll pay for it, im not asking for free....

    ps: ive got my old 4.5 nand.bin here too. So just need this mod done...

    My 2DS does that black screen on boot thing... just turn it on and off a few times with and without a valid cart in and it usually comes back to life.

    I'm on the Interior of São paulo so I think I can't help you personally ...and I'm not good with soldering ...
    but just look for a tutorial and ask someone trustfull to do the solder stuff for you, then do the restauration

    and this is why i dont mess with Gateway.

    Im sorry for your loss btw. Maybe someone can hardmod it. No one deserves a bricked console... even if its their fault.

    I don't understand the original post. You tried to flash a 9.2 backup that wasn't from your console?

    Yes but it was extracted with emunand tool...I think the emunand is a 1:1 copy isnt it?

    Oh I see. I read somewhere else that someone flashed a emuNAND backup over their sysNAND using a hardmod, but I suppose using a software method would be pretty risky.

    If someone doesn't follow directions it is their fault

    Emunand is a little diferent than sysnand, it you flash a emunand onto sysnand it will brick.

    To be fair, I dont think that there are instructions or directions that explicitly tell you how to/not to flash an emuNAND backup over sysNAND.

    No, it is not a 1:1 copy.. Emunand was already modded so that you can load your custom backups, cias...
    Seriously, you should not assume things... This is why Gateway warned user that flashing is a dangerous operation.. You need to be 100% clear what you are doing..

    I tought the things were patched on the fly when the launcher.dat was loaded...Like a ram patch or something...And the nand was just 1:1..I even can remember reading it somewhere...but well i've got a 4.5 SysNand backup here...Just need this hardware mod....
