    Okay, so right now, I'm trying to keep calm and I think I'm doing pretty good. Okay so this is what happened. I picked up my 3DS Again trying to update to the latest Luma3DS version (8.1 as of now), After a while I decided to get the latest LumaUpdater (2.1.2 as of now), and first I tried to only make it write on the SD-Card, still in the Updater It only showed "7.1-something" (I think it had some letters and numbers after but I'm not sure, I didn't pay attention to that). My 3DS Powered off which I found strange at first. So I tried to boot it again and it immediately shut itself off. I took out the SD-Card and tried booting it but with the same result. I've tried booting into the Luma Chainloader and the GodMode9. But nothing happens It just shuts itself of.

    -- I think I've seen a similar thread like this with NAND and if it's bricked or not but I decided to one myself.
    Please help me. My parents can't afford and will NOT buy me a new one.

    Are you on A9LH or B9S? The latest Luma updates require B9S as they are in .firm file format (this is probably stating the obvious if you're already on B9S)

    No, just download an older version of Luma3DS. Then follow the guide to updating to B9S 1.2 Then replace the older version of Luma3DS with the newest one. Everything is explained in the guide.
    Here's a direct link to the Luma3DS 7.1

    Download older luma (which supports b9s lower than 1.1) -> download safeb9supdater -> update b9s-> download newest luma -> copy boot.firm and luma folder to ctrnand -> reboot

    But I can't boot my 3DS at all.

    And I can't even boot into GodMode9 or the Luma chainloader.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    You can overwrite any sd data without problems. Just download an older Luma version and overwrite the boot.firm on the sd.

    what does you 3ds do when you push power button? Does the blue led lid up for a sec and then fade out?

    This happened to me when luma 8.0 first came out, do what others say, bricking is almost impossible now, no need to panic, if your 3DS bursts into flames, that's when you panic.
