    So I bricked my 3ds, and I already had a hard mod ready just in case. I did do a nand backup but I can't find it anywhere on the SD card or on my computer. Does anybody think they can give me a USA nand backup or a 10.4 or 9.1 firmware. I had a 9.1 firmware with CFW, but if I get 10.4 I can just down grade. Thanks for reading, any replies are thanked!

    THE NANDS ARE CONSOLE UNIQUE. YOU CANT JUST GET ONE WITHOUT THE RIGHT KEYS!

    If it was possible to put NANDs from random consoles on other consoles, there would be no software downgrade tools, just a lot of shops performing hardmods and flashing a generic 4.5 or 9.2 NAND.

    If you have emunand set up, put your sd card in the sd adapter, plug it into your pc, download and run the program called emunand tool and extract your emunand. Rename to nand.bin and flash to your system. Or do a search on your computer for nand.bin

    Welp, your 3ds is done for it seems. Like everybody else pointed out, NANDs are console unique so if you can't find your backup the only option left is to by a new system. Also THIS SHOULD NOT BE IN THE TUTORIAL SECTION.

    And If you accidentally deleted it from your harddrive or sd. Then try a recovery software like, recuva.

    Of course I searched my computer! But thanks for the help anyway, I didn't think the nands where unique for every console.

    EDIT:
    Is there a way to get that key from the bricked 3ds and take the nand from somewhere else and just replace that key to the new nand?

    have you tried entering recovery mode? (hold L+R+A+DPAD-UP then turn the console on while keeping them held in)

    this will update your system but with a hardmod you can downgrade anyway

    fun fact, *nearly* everyone who has had a nand mod off me i have a nand backup for them *ALL YOUR NANDS ARE BELONG TO ME!*......except i do plan to delete some soon so please dont bank on this option, but maybe check with whoever hardmoddded your console? (assuming the recovery option or emunand option doesn't work)

    Do
    Do you have an emunand? You can get a backup with that. Listen to me please so you don't spend money

    Would the NAND backup still be in the SD Card? Or does bricking it delete the NAND from the SD card? Since you shoulda done a backup during installation.

    the sd should be finetry to run this pc app
    emuNAND Tool - Release and Support thread

    with the sd card in the pc
    you should end up with an emunand.bin . . . rename it to nand.bin
