    I bricked my 3DS while setting up A9LH. Until the moment I followed the instructions to the letter. I booted up in 2.1.0 from decrypt9. While I was preparing my sd card by copying required files, I inadvertently pushed L Button handling the 3ds. This launched camera. I closed it to return to home menu, but screen become stuck on transition image which shows text 'home'.

    Now I tried pushing power button to close currently running software, but this powered off the 3ds instead.

    Now when I turn on the power, blue led turns on, but nothing comes to screen.

    Please help. Is there a hope for unbricking?

    Have you tried booting with the sd card removed?

    If it does boot without memory card then boot up then reinsert memory card while booted up and continue

    Try what @4gionz said, if that doesn't work, you need a hardmod to flash the 9.2 backup you should have from the guide.

    Take out SD and try again - should do the trick. Whatever tut you are following (if its plailects guide he is mentioning the thing with the SD card in the troubleshooting section)

    I have the same issue as OP following Plailect's guide, however it failed when installing the 2.1 firmware and now the screen goes black.
