    don't risk it, do this.

    • backup your current nand (the bricked one)
    • restore a old nand (unbricked)
    • grab the rw folder from that
    • restore your bricked nand
    • put the rw folder in it

    I don't have any backup, because the seller didn't backup, and I forgot to backup the NAND, too.
    I also try 9.2.0 CTRNAND transfer, but I can't see this folder after that.

    If you share your rw file they will have your secureinfo_a and localfriendcodeseed_b.

    iirc, I have those file on "files9" folder...

    Which contents on "rw" folder, I have secure_infoA, lfcs,... I had backed up those file before brick but not the NAND

    If I know the contents in "rw" folder, and if I have these contents, so people here don't have to share it to me anymore

    Dude if it's in the file i can simply wipe the section of it and save that.

    Plus, the 3DS isn't linked to a NNID

    the folders are

    rw/shared/
    rw/sys/

    then in sys you have localfriendcodeseed_b,secureinfo_a,native.log,rand_seed and updater.log

    Yeah, it re-create this file :D
    And because .log file is only log file, so I think I don't need it, and yeah, I only put secureinfoA and lfcsB to CTRNAND/rw/sys

    I pray when I press Start to reboot...

    And the blue led is flashing... I see my Home Menu!

    Thank you once again!

    For future reference, here's the proper way to fix this:

    Put your old NAND backup on your SD card. Boot into GodMode9. Navigate to the NAND backup, press A, NAND image options... -> Mount image to drive. Press Y on the rw folder to copy, B to go back , navigate to SYSNAND CTRNAND, press Y to paste. Choose to copy, enter the proper buttons to unlock SysNAND writing, and you're done.

    Actually, while you're there, press the Home button, go to More... and backup your NAND from there to have a more recent backup in case something else gets deleted or broken.
