    Was in gm9 and deleted the first file in root on accident not thinking about what could happen and now the console wont boot, no NAND backup. Holding Select, Start and X makes the blue led stay on, holding R, L, Dpad UP and doesnt do anything. Is there something I could do to fix this,

    What if you hold Select or Start on boot? Can you still get into GM9?

    Put your sd card in your PC, do you still have boot.firm on it?
    If not, you can retrieve Luma3DS's boot.firm from the official github repository ;)

    You need the boot.firm on your sd to boot, download Luma's latest release on your computer from the official github repository and put the boot.firm on the root of the SD, that should allow the console to boot at least.
    Note thouh that if you deleted everything, your games and saves will be gone as well, so unless you backed them up recently those are lost.

    Please note that any writing to the SD can make restoring data with special recovery software impossible (if you care for any deleted data)

    Missing a full description of the problem I interpret this like @RocaBOT: Missing boot.firm (which means blue light on → fading off → nothing)

    Providing any FAT32 formatted SD containing boot.firm should allow the console to boot again (assuming the custom firmware was installed recently and not when A9LH was in use).

    Enable "Show NAND or user string" and press Start to reboot

    That does not sound good. Download godmode9 from the official repo and put godmode9.firm in luma/payloads on your sd card.
    Then hold start on boot to boot to godmode9 and see if you can mount CTRNAND in there ?

    Do you mean you deleted stuff from the CTRNAND as well? I thought there were files that gm9 would not delete even if asked :unsure:

    OK, do you have a NAND backup from this console on your PC or somewhere else, like the guide tells you to do ?

    If not, someone else more knowledgeable than me will have to try and help you, because I don't know how to recreate working NAND from nothing but boot9strap (maybe a CTR-Transfer would work, since having access to boot9strap and godmode9 means the console can probably still do cryptographic operations, but not sure about that one)

    Yeah no NAND backup cause im dumb. I found a thread about someone making this same mistake, https://gbatemp.net/threads/help-accidentally-deleted-ctrnands-files.473378/ and would message the person who helped them but they havent been seen since November. I really appreciate the help for getting me this far.

    Ah thanks for confirming a ctrtransfer would help @TurdPooCharger, was not sure if it was the case and was not willing to turn the console more into an expensive paperweight than it already is :lol:
