    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.

    A full second after you press the power button, take out your SD Card.

    Gambia, The
    Try to delete home menu data on the sd card - should have same effect as reject sdcard after a9lh booted - so after a seccond you pressed power

    Since you've already have the OTP, just flash the original 9.2 sysnand and try setting up AuReiNand. Just follow step 5 of the guide

    Ok i tried this now, and it returns this:
    "error: config file not found.
    press any key to shutdown"

    Still black screen+jingle, after several tries.

    Can you tell me on which folder, or how to do this please? Cannot find how to do this.

    I'm considering switching mate :)
    If the above solutions don't work, i will try this :)

    Before posting i did a restore with the last NAND backup... still black screen.

    Thank you very much for your replies :)

    EDIT: some errors on post.

    Like i said previously, it's tedious... I didn't want to do it again and lose all the games installed and stuff.
    I'm currently restoring sysnand. Fingers crossed!!

    Update: Sysnand Restored
