    I was in the Nintendo Zone viewer, when I pressed the Power Button to enter the Shutdown Screen and Power Off the console quickly, but I cannot enter emuNand anymore. It always shows black screens instead of loading the HOME Menu. No, I don't have menuhax inside emuNand, yes, the Nands are unlinked, and everything worked fine until this. The NZone Viewer was displaying an error message when I entered the Shutdown Screen.
    Console: New 3DS (Reg.)
    Firmware (sysNand): 9.2
    Firmware (emuNand): 10.5
    Firmware/Console Region: EUR
    emuNand CFW: ReiNand (Latest)

    Better suited for the Flashcards & Custom Firmware section of the forums.

    To answer your question; I've done this many times, not in Nintendo Zone, but I have never encountered a problem like that. Not too sure how to fix it other than saying I hope you have a recent backup of your emunand. Cause if you do, you can just reinject it using Emunand9.

    Well, I do have a backup from a couple of days ago, but I really don't want to lose my Terraria and Triforce Heroes save. :(

    Huh. Weird. It worked now. Guess it just needed a little rest instead of rapid rebooting and prayers. :rofl2:

    The success rate is not 100% for booting CFW. Sometimes you'll be unlucky and get several black screens in a row ;)

    It's funny, cause I read that all the time and I have never not once had an issue booting reinand. Hope I never do.

    I see. I just freaked out, because it never failed to load, and now I got three or four black screens in a row.

    @MajinCubyan @smileyhead
    It depends on your method of booting, your *hax version and your CFW you use but none of them are 100% stable, I think it's 95% at best, exploits by their very nature are rarely 100% stable. They are pretty close though.
