Hello, So i'm fairly new to the scene, but cautious to cracking the 3DS with Emunand and stuff (I was in pair with PSP scene before). I bought a New 3DS (European) last year, and I installed last month A9HL updated Sysnand with CakesFW (followed plailect guide), i had it running smoothly, no problems whatsoever. Installed a bunch of games, played them with no issues whatsoever, i could access to the Nintendo Store, play CIAs, etc. Yesterday, to my surprise, when i turned on the system, black screen on boot. I hadn't mess with my sd card in weeks, so it was strange. I can boot to decrypt9 and cakes menu with no issues, but when booting to the home menu, the screen stays black but i can hear the theme from the Home menu... Yet, black screen. I tried doing the preparatory work again in the guide... black screen again. I tried a restore from A9HL sysnand that i got when i was following the guide (did a NAND restore keeping a9lh). I managed to boot into the home menu working... Rebooted again just to be sure it was OK (did not do anything in the menu), and... black screen+jingle again, yet this time it had the spotpass notification and it was looping like it was glitched (like when your pc hangs). So, right now i don't know what to do... it doesn't seem to be bricked, because it boots... yet, refuses to go to the home menu... even with a restore. What do you guys think? I haven't found this issue anywhere... Hope you guys can help me. Note: I haven't tried an original sysnand restore because i just don't want to follow all the steps over again (took me over 5 hours to do it carefully ). Thank you very much Update: restored sysnand original, but, again, black screen. I think it's hardware related, so i'm activating the warranty. Thanks for your time. Please close the thread mods.
