    Hard shutdown. That "rebooting in 10 seconds" usually never works. :)

    Also if you have menuhax set to auto-boot you should hold down a button.

    Now you need to find a N3DS compatible CFW.

    it's going to reboot, it already said everything was completed... so what is the problem? :)

    To be fair, mine got stuck nearly every time during the supposed reboot time and I had 7 softbricks as a result of whothefuckknowswhat. Plus the guide I used said to wait up to 10 minutes to manually reboot.

    P.S. I had fixed the bricks by formatting my 3DS. All those puzzle pieces ;_;

    If you are going to install a CFW use this (ReiNAND)
