    As the title indicates I can't do it. The loading bar stops at about 1-3% and says that there was an error after a while. Any Solutions?

    remove sd card and restart 3ds: fail
    enter recovery mode and update to 11.0: fail
    solution: hardmod

    Hardmod providing you have some sort of backup sysnand or emunand. Either one will work.

    A hardmod will fix it than, requires soldering. If you have no soldering experience, find someone to do it for you.
