I'm tired and frustrated and annoyed at all of this. So, I decided to hardmod both my N3DSes. Especially my new one that has 11 on it. The first one went perfectly. The dumps were good, everything went smoothly, overall a success. (Well, except for the CLK pad falling off but a quick bridge fixed that.) So, now I do the new one. Soldering went smoothly, everything is pretty and precise. However, every time I plug it in to my laptop, it doesn't read properly. I get invalid geometry errors, incorrect function, and that my drive isn't big enough for the image (yeah, no.) I got one good dump out of it. But that was an hour of fighting and luck. And it doesn't help me in making it writeable. The error that I've got is: 00F800EF FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF 00000005 00000000 I'm using the Anker reader suggested. Oh, and it boots up fine when not connected. So nothing is broken. It's grounded to the SD card shield because no solder will stick to the other ground pad I found. Can someone help a frustrated and confused lady out? I've removed and redone it all at least a dozen times over the last couple days. Error codes would vary a little, but still be unusable. It always tends to come back to that code after I try it once, though.
