    Try using hourglass9 instead.You can also just update from 2.1 to 11.4 from the system settings if you are on a old 3ds only,a new 3ds will brick if you update that way.

    I'm for from professional, but if you can't get into the home menu, and your backup is corrupted, I'm afraid so.

    How do you know your backup is corrupted? With backup, we mean the NANDmin.bin file.

    Restore that with Hourglass9 (sysnand options, sysnand restore)

    EDIT: Actually, when was that backup made?

    I've tried and Hourglass9 told me my nand is corrupted. The backup was made during the guide when doing a ctr transfer to 2.1.0.
