    i tried to update my firmware with devmenu, but now its just a black screen on both. no 3ds light.
    is it completely hosed? or is there a way to fix it?

    should have used sysupdater and pastacfw; if you have a nand backup, send it to @hundshamer, repaired my 3ds and installed a nand mod

    You can make it yourself if you have enough skills and proper tools to work.

    The only important advice I can give you is to not lose your NAND file, try to upload to a cloud site or something just in case.

    I'm adding the brick causes to the first post, so anyone can read before doing something to their 3DS's and prevent expensive paperweights.

    Did you install that one AGB_FIRM? Updating with any modified system modules (or sometimes manually updated .cias) results in a brick sometimes.

    Next time just use 3dsbuild/3dsfreeboot in other words 3dnus to update

    What I dont understand why haven't they stickied 3dnus thread tut?

    What I meant was that the hardmod installation doesn't apply to them until they fuck something up. They then ask around on how to fix it and get told to do a hardmod.

    Use a microSD to SD card adapter and a USB sd card reader.
    Just in case you want something visual, XL version:

    Yes it is, but it should be sticked somewhere to make looking for it easier.
