alright after this I'll dip for two weeks like I said I would but
Today I installed a program from the UniversalUpdater.3dsx for forwarding .nds files into .cia files to play on the 3ds itself. Once I installed it, I accidently forwarded BOOT.nds into a .cia file. I didnt think much of it and went into GodMode9 to rip my ds games. After I was done and ready to play said ds games, I rebooted the console. It got to the splash screen I had installed and, as I speak, it's now stuck on a black screen with a blue light. To clarify it's not the softbrick when the blue light flashes for a second and turns off. The blue light hangs along with the black screen.

Rookie mistake or unrecoverable brick? Please help!

It'spretty simple.
Just hold the power button for long time. Then stopp and press again for looong time. Sould turn off then.
And if that doesn't work, just take the akku out. :D

I know how to do that and ive done it miltiple times before. I just don't know how to make it stop. I can't play any of my games because I cant get past the my splash screen.
I think I'm gonna install a new boot.nds file. Should fix everything.
