    So, I was upgrading my n3ds to 9.5 with 3dsnus and it was working fine until i turned it off. Now I am stuck on a black screen with a blue light. Also, like an idiot, I formatted the computer the nand backup was on so I dont have that anymore. Is there anything I can do now? My warranty should still be active.

    No its now a door stop but I would love to buy the red Wifi antenna inside of it if you plan on dissecting it for laughs/knowledge.

    Also your not supposed to attempt upgrading Sysnand to 9.5 using SysUpdater especially if you did it using a gateway card there's even a bold red disclaimer in the app not to do so. (why do this you would kill any and all exploits)

    Do you have emuNAND set up if so, what firmware is it?

    Take this as a lesson to have more than one backup and always have an online one as well. Some have had success with Nintendo repairing bricked systems but never for free and it's a crapshoot, and you'd get it back fully updated and if you had any legit digital software you won't get it back. (not without a struggle at least)

    True if he has Emunand setup and its 9.2 or lower he can use Emunand Tool backup the Nand from Emunand and flash it to his Sysnand with a hardmod.

    dump an image of your hard drive and search for NCSD.

    wacky idea but it may work.

    Shoot. even if it's greater than 9.2, it's better than a brick. Also, has he tried safe mode?

    How would this work? My emunand was on 9.0 before my fail attempt at upgrading

    Thank you for you help but I was unable to find NCSD T.T

    I know dude T.T. I was too hasty to upgrade to windows 10 so i formatted my computer backing up what I thought was everything.

    Thats pressing L+R+A+up right? If so, I have already tried it.

    Use emuNAND tool to extract the NAND image and use a hardmod to restore it.

    Rename your Sd card to GATEWAYNAND

    Are you sure you set it up, or was it a CFW that uses sysNAND?

    That means you never setup Emunand

    You need the SD card in the 3DS, not the one in the GW card.
