    Basically, I put CFW onto my 3ds with arm9loaderhax etc and want to get rid of the cfw and reset to stock so I can re-sell it.

    I have reset the 3DS to factory settings and it won't boot up without the sd card in, the blue light will just turn on then fade off.

    I want to get it to be able to boot up fine without the sd card so I can sell it :/]

    any help?

    Do you have a sysnand_original.bin ?

    Gambia, The
    restore it with decrypt9 instead of hourglass9. Hourglass9 protects A9LH.

    Or just use the latest release of safea9lhinstaller to remove a9lh

    Hi guys I have the same problem: n3ds can't turn on without sd card in it. I was trying to get luma through arm9. I don't think I have sysnand_original.bin. Where can I find it / if I don't have it what should I do to fix this problem?

    To into fbi, copy arm9loaderhax.bin, then go into ctrnand, then paste it. That should fix it.

    Wow thanks a lot! It worked. So if I worked to delete homebrew and all the other stuff what would I do? Thank for all the help.

    If you really wanted to delete a9lh, which i cannot stress how much you shouldn't as it makes your 3ds go up in value, download safe a9lh installer, overwrite arm9loaderhax.bin, boot up the 3ds and uninstall arm9loaderhax.

    @Giodude Hey I know this isn't the right post to ask a question but I can't pm you or post a question for some reason, so sorry about that.

    Story: I got to the point in the guide where I enter in the url when the ds is in version 2.0.1. The mistake I made was not pressing start rather than pressing select. What happened was my ds turned off and I didn't get to the stage where I injecting a9hl and fbi into my 3ds. After that I thought I had bricked because my ds was black screening when I turned it on. Some how I opened decript9 and rebooted up my back-up NAND. I got scared and pulled all the files out of my sd card and put in my files before I tried to hack it. Now we are here at this post, my ds is back to v 11.2 but it doesn't turn on without sd. I didn't have fbi because I didn't get to the point in the guide where you inject it so I found a different way to get fbi on my ds and then followed your answer to fix the sd problem.

    So now I wanted to try and hack my N3DSXL again. I followed the guide again got the files up to the point where I tried to get made 3ds to version 2.0.1 but when ever I tried to get past the safehax stage it would give me this error PM INIT FAILED! I think the other error message was arm9loader not found.

    Do you know a fix? Also since I already have fbi will i have to inject again?
    The three pictures I uploaded are what is on my sd card currently, what it was like when I tried hack it again and got those errors, and what the sd card looked like before I booted up my backup and purged my sd card. I still have those files on my desktop.

    Thanks for the help!

    Really can't tell if this is a troll but
    1.If you can get to 2.0.1 then you're not using plailect's guide which should be 2.1.0, you stated it twice so I don't know if it's a typo
    2.You said you pressed select instead of start? From the guide:
    • Press (Select) to Full Install
    So I really don't know what you've read and have you done

    3.You may want to be clear of the process you have done, did you launch fasthax? And what happened after you got arm9loader not found?
    Also injecting FBI isn't hard and shouldn't be considered if you can't even launch safehax, and what do you mean you got a different way to get FBI on your ds? .3dsx version? Well if so you can always make a backup of it
    You may want to try different entry point than menuhax though I see soundhax installed as well, which entry point are you using, shouldn't matter but sometimes miracle happens, or try to rename the safehaxpayload.bin again

    I'm on the part where safehax is giving me error massages. I'm sure that after I can get back into 2.1.0 I can finish hacking but right now it seems like I can't.

    I mean which error, if it's pm init failed most likely you didn't run fasthax, it's not a thing you run one time and it's forever
