    Well...first of all, hi everyone

    Let's see...I'm basically kinda desperate and this is the only place where I think I might get some help. So I don't know if this is the correct section to ask about this but if not, feel free to move this thread please.

    The thing is that I was changing themes with CHMM (using hombrew via tubehax, latest firmware) and everything was ok until a stupid (yes, really stupid) idea came up to my mind...so basically I "mixed" themes by taking the audio file (bgm.bcstm) from a specific theme and moving into another different one (and deleting its own audio file), then I put my SD card back on my 3DS and installed this "theme" with CHMM...everything was fine until system reboot...

    After the 3ds reboot, the home screen was completely black, just some slight shades of the theme that I just installed and nothing else, I wasn't able to do anything but press the power button to see Nintendo's info about sleep mode and stuff. Then I made sure that everything was fine because I removed the SD and my 3ds just worked normally without it, no problem at all. After that, I even formatted my SD card and copy all the files again but it was pretty much the same... Now I'm kinda scared because I don't know how to fix this problem and I'm a newbie with this kind of things (Although I think the problem is related with theme cache, idk what to do in that case anyway).

    So please guys, I'd really appreciate any solution, clue, instruction, or everything that might help me to fix the problem...I promise I won't be reckless again with this kind of stuff

    thanks in advance ;__;

    Why not just take out your sd card and then change the theme to a normal one ._.

    Because you cannot change themes unless SD card is inserted :/

    Ah, I did not know this. Then why not format your SD and then put it in, change the theme, replace files, and then go about your business?

    All you have to do is delete the right folder on the sd..i dont remember wich one exactly but its mentionned in the thread for CHMM..
    Then the screen will be back to normal.

    EDIT: damn i cant remember the name..i had thisnissues when modifiying a theme currently active and i had to delete a folder thati cant remember the name.. i wrote it on the CHMM's thread so you will find it there for sure..

    Thanks a lot! I found the 000002cd folder.. So, do I have to delete the whole thing, right? (just asking because it has another folder "00000000" with many files inside)

    Yup, but just to make sure, keep a backup of the folder on your pc, atleast for the time you try..but if i remember right i deleted everything that was inside 000002cd.
