    Long story short, I had trouble installing some large game .CIAs, probably because I had previous tickets from incomplete Freeshop downloads.

    But I must have deleted the wrong red ticket through FBI because alas my Luma can't find the CTRNAND FIRM.

    I panicked. And then finally found my NAND backup. Found the 3ds.hacks.guide for doing it through GM9. However the installation says it isn't a valid NAND backup. Okay. Fine.

    So I tried a CTRT Transfer. Followed the 3ds.hacks.guide again. However I can't do it.

    Step 5 says

    Press (A) on the CTRTransfer .bin to select it

    Sure. But when I select A I do not have the option to for Step 6.

    Select “CTRNAND options…”

    All I have to choose from is: Show in Hexeditor, Calculate in SHA-256, Show file info, and Copy to 0:/gm9/out

    Is the CTRTransfer .bin just supposed in the GM9 folder? Am I missing something else?

    Any help would be appreciated guys. I don't care about restoring saves or anything else, or even preserving my homebrew. I can install/do it all again, I just want to be able to salvage my 3DS.

    Thanks man, I'll try that now. I'm fairly certain it's B9s.

    OH BOY YESSSSSSSSS.

    I could have sworn I had the latest release, I installed CFW a few weeks ago. But yeah I got it to work. Thank you so much, I was thinking I would have to buy a new system. Took a while, but it worked like a charm.
