    Hello guys.

    I just bought New 3DS (not XL) from Amazon Japan and CFW it. After that, I did CTRTransfer to change region to Korea with 3ds.hacks.guide site. Updated to 11.9. B9S, Luma3DS are up to date. And realized all DS/DSi functionality doesn't work.(DSiWare Settings, TwilightMenu, DS Catridge etc...). When start a DS game, screens go black and if I pushed a button, it goes home back after seconds.

    So I've followed guides.
    1. 3ds hacks guide troubleshooting
    "DSi / DS functionality is broken after completing the guide"
    -> all 5 cias installed, not working

    2. Luma3DS FAQ-and-troubleshooting
    "GBA/DS games/DSiWare/Smash Bros/Monster Hunter fail to start with a black screen"
    -> Luma3DS reinstalled, not working

    3. Re CTRTransfer
    -> not working

    4. device reset
    -> not working

    I guess When CTRTransfer, it corrupts TWL NAND files? or CTRTranfer image corrupted? I'm not sure.. I used image 11.5.0-KOR on 3ds hack guide.
    I have a SYSNAND backup(JAPAN) which was made when first CFW. Can I restore that backup image from 11.9 KOR?
    Or maybe find another CTRTransfer image and try again?

    Thanks for reading.

    :/

    Edit Feb 22, 2019 - There are important files I failed to considered in the sys and tmp folders.
    1. GodMode9 → [S:] SYSNAND VIRTUAL/twln.binCopy to 0:/gm9/out.
      • This will back up the contents of [2:] SYSNAND TWLN.
      • Do not skip backing up.
    2. Go into [2:] SYSNAND TWLN, press (L) shoulder button on import, progress, shared1, sys, ticket, and title, and tmp to yellow highlight select these subfolders.
      • Do not select shared2, sys, and tmp.
    3. Press (X) to delete all selected folders.
      • Do not delete shared2 as this will cause ARM9 boot error.
      • Do not delete sys as this contains TWLFontTable.dat, inspect.log, and product.log. These contain TWL hardware info and calibration.
      • Do not delete tmp as this has opera.ini, a file that for the DSi browser.
    4. Reinstall the five (5) DSiWare cia files at "DSi / DS functionality is broken after completing the guide".
    ***

    Another method.
    1. FBI → Titles → All DSiWare Title IDs in purple colorDelete Title And Ticket
    2. Recovery Mode or System Setting → System Update to redownload DS Download Play, Nintendo DSi, 0004800F484E4841.
      • You may will to reinstall the missing two (2) cia.
    ***

    I have discovered the issue. The older version TWL_FIRM is incompatible with 11.9 firmware.

    n3DS firmware 11.9.0-42X uses 0004013820000102 v10926 (10.45.2).
    The 3ds.hacks.guide provides New_3DS TWL_FIRM - v9936.cia (9.45.0).

    @TurdPooCharger

    I'm updating System and waiting. It takes so long.

    I deleted both SYSNAND TWLN and EMUNAND TWLN sub-folders except "shared2". And checked not working dsi games both NAND(it worked Japanese SYSNAND, my mistake). So I'm doing another method you said. If another method no works, Can I restore TWLN using "twin.bin"? or just NAND restore works?

    If you have n3DSXL / n2DS / n2DSXL, go to FBI → Titles → 0004013820000102. Don't confuse it for 0004013820000202.

    If yours not Version: 10962 (10.45.2), use Delete Title And Ticket. You can redownload the latest version TWL_FIRM with System Settings or Recovery Mode.

    In case of the event that SYSNAND TWLNAND isn't repaired, the twln.bin is a backup where you can recover from.

    ***

    I don't know what's the latest TWL_FIRM for o3DS / o3DSXL / o3DSXL. Their title id is 0004013800000102.

    Not having progress folder is fine. It's typically blank anyhow.

    ***

    If either of you guys have important DSiWare games to reinstall and restore their saves, you'll need that twln.bin.

    Edit - Forgot to add, A SysNAND *.bin image contains all three SYSNAND CTRNAND, TWLNAND, and TWLPHOTO.

    Why are you using EMUNAND? TWL_FIRM (DSi) and AGB_FIRM (GBA) modes do not work in EmuNAND.

    i have realized after reading your forum... you might have the EXACT same problem as me... does your system also go to a ds white screen for a split second and the to a black screen and then to sleep mode while loading any ds title?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    go to know cause i never had a dsiware game nor title

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    1 more thing just in case i have an o3ds with 11.9 (obviously)

    Succeed with your Another method both SysNAND and EMUNAND, and realized while ds game running, can't touch anything in EMUNAND. I didn't know about that.
    I'm going to re-CTRTransfer SYSNAND and try again. Thanks for your godly helping! I'll inform you result.

    No. while loading ds title, just black screen and when I push A button, it reboots.

    If you're having trouble redownloading the o3DS TWL_FIRM 0004013800000102, you will need to resort to offline methods.

    CTRTransfer will only repair the TWL_FIRM but may fail depending if GodMode9 doesn't catches finding it broken. There's a different kind of CTRTransfer performed by another homebrew app I would suggest, but I recently learned it has flaws not restoring several important NAND files.

    ***

    There's a way to offline, force install TWL_FIRM if the System Update in Recovery Mode and System Settings aren't working.
    1. Download the 3DS firmware package found at that darth site.
      • 3DS o3DS USA 11.9.0-42U - bfed7c0d4e9b9dc40c2c2f7995ec7c54
      • 3DS n3DS KOR 11.9.0-42K - 52bb3fcaca5e618a33159bf70d6b1760
    2. Copy the TWL_FIRM *.cia file onto the SD card.
      • o3DS - 0004013800000102.cia
      • n3DS - 0004013820000102.cia
      • Do not copy the other included CIA files.
    3. Install the specific TWL_FIRM title with FBI.
      • o3DS - Version: 10864 (10.39.0)
      • n3DS - Version: 10962 (10.45.2)
      • Do not install the other CIA files. FBI can brick the 3DS especially for System Modules - 00040130########.
    ***
    Edit - Forgot to add.

    4. You will still need to reinstall the other four (4) cia files.
    • DS Download Play - v1024.cia
    • DS Internet - v2048.cia
    • Nintendo DS Cart Whitelist - v11264.cia
    • TWL Version Data - v0.cia
    • These four do not have appear to have been updated for 11.9.
    5. Try again:

    No. Due to that site hosting copyright material, we can't directly name it here on GBAtemp. You will have to put some effort google searching it with the provided MD5 hashes.

    Edit your post.

    Don't worry. The people at 3ds.hacks.guide will get around to it. It's the outdated TWL_FIRM that's borked with firmware 11.9.0-42X. I'm just glad the mystery's solved. Now we await if the same applies for CodyWGamer.
