    I was trying to Hardmod my NES so that I could backup the NAND and stuff But then it asked me to update to the latest firmware so I did and Now while I was in the Middle of NAND dumping the whole NAND chip just seemingly vanished!

    DID THE UPDATE FIX ANYTHING? HALP

    First you have to determine how the NAND vanished. Insert the Game Genie, locked onto the NES Test Program cart, entering the cheat XYZZY, then hit start. Once it tells you what the diagnostic result was, come back here, and tell us.

    Then the solution is simple 2 day, simply wish that your NES was unbricked.

    Microwaving is a very good way to unbrick consoles.

    Behind a screen reading news
    It is also a good way to hack them.
