So, my N2DSXL has given me a tsunami of errors recently, and upon trying to fix them, I got my N2DSXL stuck in a CTRNAND boot error. Is there any way I can factory reset the device just to clear it of everything so I can use it again?

A factory reset will likely NOT fix whats going on. Its a bad habit of people whom think a wipe and rerun will work, Whats the error exactly as it shows on your 3ds?

I don't think they mean a "factory reset" as in the official one in Settings, I think they just meant it as a general ambiguation for a larger reset process. Hence my suggestion

It’s says that the CTRNAND is failing to mount to the sd card, and I mean just a general wipe to try and restore everything since I can’t get past the boot error at all

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    but that's a long shot

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
