Hi guys, I recently purchased a "New" 3DS on ebay which I didn't know it had homebrew installed such as A9LH, Xuma, FBI etc. so I formatted the system, wiped the micro sd card and now it won't turn on (blue light blinks once and screens stay off). Does anyone know if there is a way I can fix this ? Thank you.

Just put an arm9loaderhax.bin payload onto the root of the SD card you want to load.

Use the (A) button and the D-Pad to turn on the following:
  • "Autoboot SysNAND"
  • "Use SysNAND FIRM if booting with R (A9LH)"
  • "Show current NAND in System Settings"
  • "Show GBA boot screen in patched AGB_FIRM"

I had already continued without checking any.

Can somebody help me restore the system to its original state, I don't want to brick the system haha. It has 11.0.0-33 firmware so it has its limitations anyways from what I've heard and I don't plan on using homebrew. Do I have to put different files on the SD card ?

If you have luma installed it doesnt matter what version your on lmao
P.S: Theres no reason to restore it to the start state as its perfectly good on its own, Just as previous people said, Copy luma files onto the root of your SD card and you should be fine.

if you mean original stock? download a9lh installer, uninstall a9lh:)

You really shouldn't remove A9LH, unless you're selling it back to a store. But if you must, copy arm9loaderhax.bin from this zip to the root of your SD card,
Then turn on your 3DS and uninstall A9LH. (It should be START, if it hasn't changed since I installed A9LH.) After it's uninstalled, format your system and wipe your SD card. Have fun playing only approved games legitimately :P

If you don't want a hacked system why waste it? Trade someone who can't/won't downgrade their 11.0 DS for a stock DS and some extra cash or something. That's like tossing half a loaf of bread out because you just ate a sandwich and aren't hungry anymore......

^This.
Honestly, arm9loaderhax is the best thing that could happen to a 3DS. If you don't like it, let another person enjoy it.
