    Due to recent breakthroughs in 3DS reverse engineering there is now a way to unbrick your 3DS without a NAND backup.
    Step 1: Brick your 3DS (or else you can't do this)
    Step 2: create a new folder on your computer calles NAND
    Step 3: fill it with files
    Step 4: compress it and make sure it's the same size as a NAND dump. Must be zip file.
    Step 5: rename it from NAND.zip to NAND.bin (make sure to change the extension)
    Step 6: put NAND.bin on the root of your SD cars
    Step 7: insert SD card into your 3DS
    Step 8: put your 3DS in the microwave
    -the radiation will change NAND.bin to a valid NAND backup
    Step 9: It is now unbricked.

    Have fun with your 3DS.

    Actually this works.

    You guys cant tell a joke to save your mothers lives. Attempts at comedy that arent funny are annoying.

    Somewhere, probably
