EDIT: 05/01/17 I successfully restored my N3DS using a StarTech FCREADMICRO3 card reader and a sysNANDmin.bin file created by HourGlass9. Thanks to all who replied to this thread Now, my mission is to rectify my FrakenFirm situation without a clean/working 9.2 sysNAND dump So today i bricked my new3DS NAND trying to undo my franken-firm situation. 'No problem' i thought, since I have a NAND access mod. I borrowed my next door neighbours card reader that appears to have a compatible chipset for reading New3DS NAND eMMC chips (when the unit powers on with NAND connected, i get bootrom: 8046 blue screen and Windows shows: "You need to format the disk in drive X: before you can use it.") so everything seemed to be going just fine. That was until i opened win32diskmanager and tried to write my raw NAND backup to the 3DS, I am greeted with "An error occurred when attempting to write data to handle. Error 19: the media is write protected." and it fails. The write protection switch on the SD-to-microUSB adapter has been snapped off and glued in the unlocked position. I've tried all 5 USB ports on my computer. Please help me, i don't know what else i can do. I've been bricked completely and can't access hourglass9 with A9LH anymore to undo the brick. I've read somewhere about bridging two points on somewhere (in the card reader, or on the 3DS NAND, i don't know ) It's not my card reader, so i can't disassemble it to bridge contacts. Thanks for reading.
