    Hi there please help me.
    I have or better to say had an 3ds xl old on 10.2.0-28E

    I just plugged in my r4i sdhc 3ds rts and i pressed A
    Then nothing appears not even a black screen just the blue LED light. I waited a bit and turned off my 3ds by holding the power button (i know i shouldn't have done this). Then when i turn it on again in loads the home menu with only a few apps not showing system settings anymore.. Now each time i try to load an app or even the home menu settings the 3ds freezes..
    I took out r4 and sd card. Even the battery but nothing works..
    I tried to boot the recovery by holding L+R+A+Up on DPad but nothing...
    Thank you.

    Try leaving the battery out for an hour or so, then try again.

    Isn't that what what happens when the Wi-Fi card becomes loose? Might not have to do with the R4i at all.

    Did the the upper bar on the top screen that shows the time/coins/etc vanish as well?

    If the Wi-Fi board is indeed the problem and your warranty is gone, try looking into iFixIt, they have an image guide for disassembling the 3DS for replacing it, but it might just have became loose (or the R4i zapped it, not sure if that's possible?)

    Though if you still have warranty go for it, this is kinda a common problem even to people who don't mess with this kind of stuff at all.

    your R4 card is just going bonkers, happens to me a few times and sometimes when it is plug-in when the 3ds is powered on all I get is a black screen

    If it helps, my 3DS did that after iinserting a normal NDS game cart.
    I left it, turned on for about a day, (I dunno, drains the battery or something)
    When I turned it on the next day it worked fine.

    How would he have been able to backup his nand on that firmware? He is also talking about using his 3ds for ds games(r4), so I doubt he even had a reason to backup nand.

    Yep.
    Leaving it alone is the key. Somehow.
    Glad it's working again! ;)
