    I got my drives mixed up while formatting and accidentally formatted my 3ds sd card which was hacked with cfw. When I put it back into the 3ds, only the blue light flashes for a second, then it doesn't power on. Any help on what to do?

    What's the SD size? If it's bigger than 32gb,did you format in FAT32?

    Other thing,did you return the cfw files to the SD or it's empty yet?

    Doesn't sysNAND exist on a hidden partition at the start of the SD card - a partition that wouldn't be affected by Windows formatting the card? As such OP probably wants to keep that partition and just recover or replace the CFW boot files. As far as I'm aware that's just a few files from the Luma3DS Github page.

    Nope,that's Emunand
    Sysnand is the main system,emunand is the emulated system and only emunand exists in a hidden partition
    Sysnand isn't affect by SD formatting,since it is located on the 3ds itself, but the files from "Nintendo 3DS" folder and luma files are located on SD's visible part
