    So, last year, I tried to install Arm9LoaderHax, and I F'd it up. I'm here because I did a horrible mistake, my screens won't turn on, but my 3DS will show that blue light since it's on. I feel like I have learned my lesson. Hopefully I might get help on how to fix this brick ( I'm not sure if it is a brick or not ). I've looked for videos everywhere, but to no avail.

    Can you access recovery mode? (hold A+L+R+DPad Up on boot)
    And what happens if you try booting it without a SD card?

    Luckily for you, a new exploit is coming out where you can use a flashcart to unbrick a 3ds. Just check 3ds.guide and gbatemp for more info as progress on the exploit develops

    I actually don't have an SD card at the moment, and yes I have tried recovery mode which hasn't worked (I held it for a minute or so)

    Do you think the SD Card not being there, might be the problem?

    You did make a mistake, you joined the Temp! :tpi:
    Jokes aside, it sounds like you are either going to need a hard mod or wait until magnethax is released.

    Did you ever but the A9LH bin file in your CTRNand?

    Is Magnethax the exploit Stephano was talking about?

    No, it was just for checking if you have A9LH at all.
    And yeah you'll probably have to wait for ntrboothax.

    Ya, same thing. I don't think a name has been officialy decided for the exploit yet. :unsure:
    Or is it officially called magenthax?

    Wow, once I'm able to make a thread, and once this exploit comes out, I'll probably ask for a "shopping list" of what I'll need to fix that darn 3DS

    Fortunately, a sibling gave me his a few days before I "broke" mine, so I can still play!

    Well that is good. I would just check back on this site frequently for updates. It has proven to work, but until the compatability of carts increases, it won't be released.

    As for @Crystal the Glaceon , I happen to like that name. I just wasn't sure if a name had been picked yet. ;)

    Obviously it's still trying to read arm9loaderhax from the sd. Unless the payload is moved to ctrnand you can't boot without an SD.

    You'll need another one, and a payload compatible with a9lh.

    Then I would find an SD card and load up the proper files and move the A9LH bin file to CRTNand like @WeedZ said.

    Could you explain the process? I'm new to this.
