    My house... almost everytime.
    The troubleshooting guide has the TWL_FIRM to install, but you said that you followed the guide and didn't worked... so the TWL_FIRM isn't broken.
    What steps of the troubleshooting guide did you do?

    Hello, I have the same issue, I'm currently running 11.6 on my 'Old' 3DS. I used the 3DS.guide but now my DS games give me a black screen. Actually anything that uses DS functions don't work anymore, not even the DS wifi settings. I tried my R4 on it but that didn't work, but When I played by r4 on my 2DS, it worked just fine. I'm running 9.1 Luma and I'm using gm9. Ive heard that those are outdated or something as there are apperently better methods, idk. I followed the guide and installed the required cia files, but to no success. So I know it's not the TWL.FIRM, I can assume that something went wrong during the installation process...What's worse is that this is a pretty rare problem, not alot of people know how to fix this. help.

    Try updating to the latest firmware. There's no advantage being on 11.6.

    Alright, I updated to 11.8, and assuming its a starting point, DS/DSi functionality is still broken. Immediately, nothing noticeable has changed for me. I believe Luma 9.1 can't be abliterated by 11.8 so...

    You said you already tried this?

    Maybe you have NVRAM type brick?

    Are you using EmuNAND? DSiWare doesn't work with that.

    Probably not related, but worth trying for your DS flashcart:

    Lastly, perhaps your flashcart has a time bomb?

    Or it's really old, so it's not on the DS cart whitelist (aka, blocked).

    Yes, I tried the 3ds.guide for restoring the DS/DSi Mode functionality.

    I don't know about the NVRAM brick, because I'm not familiar with any DS Bricker type applications.

    I checked using Luma3DS, I'm not using EmuNAND.

    Yeah that's not related.

    My Flashcart's fine, I tried it on my 'old' 2DS and it's fine.

    It's not blocked, since it works on my 'old' 2DS.

    Check if your DSi (TWL) firmware works by playing a TWLNAND installed title. Either download a DSiWare game at that iso site or use TWiLight Menu++ and Launcher with a *.nds rom like Mario Kart DS.

    If this works, try playing a physical DS game cart. Don't use your DS flashcart; a 3DS game is acceptable but not favored. If you don't own a DS game, stop by a GameStop and ask if they'll let you quickly debug your 3DS. Just let them know your dilemma; don't mention you have custom firmware as some salesclerks are sticklers about homebrew.

    If DSiWare doesn't work and SysNAND Restore, CTRTransfer with GodMode9, nor DSi functionality repair guide fixed your 3DS DSi Mode...
    Your last available software based repair methods are:
    If these three do not work, your fault is presumed hardware based in nature.

    If DSiWare works but your DS (or 3DS) game isn't read or played when launched...
    You may be looking at cleaning or replacing your game slot reader.
