    Hi everyone.

    I need your help, I'll try to give you as much info as I can.

    I have a
    new 3ds xl U, a few days ago I tried to update to 11.3.0-36U from the system update option, everything went good until the update complete and a prompt window ask to press any button to restart the console, after that the console never started, it just stay on a black screen so I set up hourglass9 as a payload and restore a past nand backup on 9.2.0-20U, after nand restored the console turned on ok but I was unable tu load any payload or .bin such as luma3ds, even luma 3ds settings don't load pressing select while pressing on button, so I tough maybe it was the a9lh version I had installed in the past went corrupted so I prep my sd card with a9lhsafeinstaller, enter the homebrew launcher (remember that I was unable to load any payload at this time) and update a9lh, the process was successful but after restarting my console it was dead it stays on a black screen.

    I assume it still have a9lh because when you try to turn it on with no sd card it just blinks the blue led and then suddenly turn off automatically, but I can't figure out if it is trying to find the .bin in other folder rather than the root of the sd card or it is a brick.

    I have tried many many thing such as downloading several versions of luma3ds, tried to start other payloads directly from the arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the sd card but nothing has yet worked.

    Do you have you any clues? any idea will be helpful.

    Thank you in advice.

    Regards.

    AH

    i have done that, I have tried to load hourglass9 as a arm9loadehax.bin, but the problem is that the console seems to not be reading it, I have even tried with different sd cards with no success.

    Why do people always reach for an ancient NAND backup as the first option for fixing things?
    Are you using Gateway?

    Just to confirm, when you restored the backup you selected (Keep a9lh)?

    Ya, so?. Hourglass9 has "SysNAND Restore (Keep a9lh)" as an option.

    Hourglass9 has no option not to keep a9lh. H9 was made so people don't accidentally restore their backup without a9lh.

    you could use homebrew Launcher to start Decrypt9 or Godmode9 to make a CTRTransfer (it may help)

    Umm how did you messed up with this ? (I hope you used Decrypt9)
    Can you get into Recovery ? (if your SD Card with A9LH Payload on it isn't inserted your 3ds won't start because the Payload got with Ctransfer deleted)

    Yes the sd card is inserted, but the console seems not read the bin file to load it

    Do you get a "plop" Sound ? and the Blue Light turns on for some Seconds ? -> (bricked)
    What about removing the Battery ?
    You could try sending your N3DS to Nintendo

    That was something I didn't think about, now, the update to 11.3 never complete so I restore back to 9.2 and the process went ok the console turn on correctly but after updating a9lh the console never start again. Any clue?
