    if you seen my last post, I was having trouble booting up gateway, so I formatted sysNAND. Still didn't work. Finally I downloaded 3.4.2 of gateway's launcher.dat. It finally booted and the main purpose of getting gateway to launch was to revert to my first NAND.bin backup. After restoring the NAND I turned off my DS and bam! 3DS got bricked -.- this is my second 3ds to be bricked. Now, my question is, Was my one and only NAND.bin the coperate for my brick? Or was it gateway and I can easily re flash my NAND with a hardmod? (The brick is a software brick where there is no backlight LED coming on)

    It looks like you restored a NAND.bin that is somehow corrupted, ie some titles/FIRM are not compatible.

    Are you sure this was a clean *WORKING* NAND.bin?
    If you're going to restore this with a nand mod, it will probably result in the same thing

    You had your 3ds booting, why would you reflash it? Doesn't make sense...

    You could hard mod yeah.
    That is pretty much your only option here.

    iirc

    This too. but I wanted to take into consideration he may have been trying something assuming that based off the "2nd brick, and hard mod" comment

    That would have given a blue screen brick.

    Try reflashing with hard mod. Easiest way to see if your problem is fixed.

    I wanted to relink my sysNAND and emuNAND because I was having troubles signing in to NNID, where it completely blocked my emuNAND from connecting to Nintendo Servers until I signed into NNID from sysNAND, which was impossible since it was trying to force me to update.
    No, I named the folder the color of the 3DS and the sysNAND version, so I obviously didn't do that.
    How can I tell if it's corrupted? It's full size so I don't believe it's corrupted.

    Look at it in a hex editor and look to see if it looks trashed, would help if you had another known good nand to look at to get a rough idea of what it should look like. Or just do the hardmod.

    Backup emunand, backup it's Nintendo 3DS folder, format emunand in system settings, re-link NNID, restore emunand backup + its Nintendo 3DS folder = win

    At this point your only hope would be to try and flash emunand backup to sysnand, which may just result in the same black screen anyway.
