    I bought and cracked my 3ds about a year ago, everything was fine, i could play all the games i installed on it well, but at some point my younger cousin clicked Yes when prompted with the system update and my 3ds went to shit

    Mind you i can still play games, but about 2-20 minutes into any game i get an error prompt and the console crashes ( see link below for exact errors )

    Green Joy-Con D-Pad Shells for Nintendo Switch


    I'm hoping this has an easy fix, and i'm sorry for the trouble. If there's any additional information required i'll give it.

    Thank you and happy new year :)

    Which version of Luma3DS is displayed when booting the 3DS while holding the Select button?

    I just did the update, hoping it would fix it, but it's still displaying the same error

    Based on the information you've provided, I would suggest reinstalling the problematic game. If it's a lot of games that are crashing, then the problem might be with your SD card. If the problem is your SD card, it might need to be checked for errors, reformatted, or replaced.

    I already tried reinstalling the problematic games and the error still comes up. I thank you for the assistance tho ! I'll get on it as soon as possible

    Is there any way i can keep my save files ? I'm assuming they're stored in the SD card, or is it in the console ?

    Save files are saved to your SD card. I would recommend the following steps:
    1. Backup everything on the SD card
    2. Run chkdsk /r on the SD card and try again
    If that doesn't fix the problem:
    1. Do an overwrite format of the SD card using SD Formatter
    2. If it's not already formatted as FAT32, use guiformat to reformat the SD card as FAT32 using 32KB clusters
    3. Put your files and folders back onto the SD card and try again
    If that doesn't fix the problem:
    1. Try a different SD card, making sure it's FAT32 with 32KB clusters
