    I know i already posted on the noob thread but it's urgent so i need help fast.
    So a little while ago i installed home menu cia, both in BBM and FBI. I installed on BBM first and had been notified that it already exist. Then i try it on FBI with invalid argument error.
    Without realizing what i had done, i turned off my 3DS and now it won't boot, stayed on black screen with blue LED still on.
    Can i do something with it? Like godmode9 or something else, i have my 10.7 emunand backup with me if it can help.

    Did you install the HOME menu cia on Emunand or Sysnand?
    If you installed it on Sysnand, do you have a9lh installed, or were you using MenuHax?

    i tried to install it on my sysnand, and i don't have emuannd on my sd, just the backup of it.
    And i'm using a9lh.

    If you have a9lh, then you can restore an emunand/sysnand backup using Decrypt9.
    Download it here, put the arm9loaderhax.bin file on the root of your SD, and restore your backup.
    I'd make a SysNand backup beforehand though, in case there's some way to unbrick it.

    It's better to use Hourglass9. It's SysNAND restore option always has the option to keep A9LH when restoring a backup, Decrypt9 has a few different options and can easily uninstall A9LH if the wrong option is chosen.

    will i lose anything after that backup created?
    Like the games and the saved data created after that backup point?
    Because i have some game i wish to keep, especially pokemon sun.
    Also, is there no other way? Like using godmode9 to replace the files?
    Just asking because google searches bring nothing about it.

    The saves should stay. For the games, it all depends on how recent your NAND backup was and when you installed Sun and your other games. Don't use GodMode9 if you don't know what you're doing. I wouldn't recommend touching GodMode9 at all.

    it was 10.7 if i remember correctly, or might be 11.0. The backup was when i installed a9lh with ctrnand method.
    Also i recently uninstalled Tales of the Abyss and installs the undub one (after backup), will the save from the undub stays readable? The saves are different and i wish to keep the undub one.

    You will keep the saves from the games that were installed when you made that backup ; you'll need to reinstall the games you installed after making that backup.
    Like @KunoichiZ said, I wouldn't touch GodMode9, it's a really "dangerous" tool if you don't know what you're doing.

    They shouldn't. You'll just need to reinstall the game.

    that's reassuring to know, really.
    I'll try restoring now, will get back on this later.
    Thanks for the advice, guys. :grog:

    Use the lastest version of FBI to install home menu cias. It will crash with a press the power button screen, but it will install anyway.
    Make sure to do a nand backup before doing any dangerous stuff like this!

    they're not gone, thanks dude, you're a real lifesafer. :grog:
    i did, using 2.4.3 to install it, unless there's a newer one.
    And i admit it is my fault, and i'll try do my best so i won't do anything without thinking again.
    Cheers guys. :grog:

    Reinstalling the tickets should do the trick and is faster than reinstalling the full games

    You could try to dump the tickets from your corrupt nand and then inject them in the restored nand.

    Thanks :).
