    About a year ago, I removed the CFW from my New3DS so I could have a clean device and a separate modded one, though both stopped seeing any use by me soon afterwards because I bought a Switch.
    Today, I decided to start messing with the New3DS again, but realized that trying to access the Nintendo3DS and DSiWare menus under Data Management caused a software crash and a system restart.
    I'm at a loss as to how I could fix the issue, and would appreciate any help.

    My system is up to date and there was no error code, just a message saying:
    "An error has occurred, forcing the software to close.
    The system will now restart. (Unsaved data may be lost.)"

    So, you dont have any CFW, i think this can be hard to solve the problem... You can try to contact Nintendo ? Because here you dont have any solutions without CFW...

    This can happen if illegitimate titles are still installed when removing CFW (which is is bad idea in any case). Reinstalling B9S/Luma3DS should solve the problem and/or make further troubleshooting possible.

    Note that you can't use the current version of https://3ds.hacks.guide/seedminer as it requires using "DSiWare Data Management". I guess the older method should work: https://3ds.eiphax.tech/frogminer.html (DO NOT install the update for "Steel Diver:Sub Wars")

    I would prefer installing B9S with ntrboot in this case.
    possibly very bad(!!) idea

    That worked!
    Thanks for the hack!
