    So i like to do this kind of things. I was exploring my Super Mario Maker gamecard and found the .cia system updates of idk what version, i wanted to test what version they were and i installed them. Result total black screen on boot and process called pm id:00000000000000000 crashes, i can still launch payloads just wondering if this is fixable with a ctr transfer with one of those image in the 3ds.guide

    P.S I have no nand backup and safe mode not booting

    If I remember correctly from hacking my 3DS over 2 years ago with CTR Transfers, I think that should work, because I remember thinking of them as system packages. You havent got much to lose aswell, because you have no NAND backup and can only boot payloads so I would give it a shot.

    Sounds like your NAND is just corrupted. Assuming you were using B9S, boot into GodMode9 and use a CTRNAND transfer.

    You can't install system cia files and expect something *not* to break.

    What I did was, turn it off, take out the game and sd card, and reboot. If it shows a brightish black screen, then it will boot properly and you will be able to put ur game and sd card back in.

    You may be true the fact that the home menu is only 7 megabytes maybe they are like games updates. Maybe manually deleting them from ctr may fix. But i will do a ctr transfer just to be sure to not get a bootrom error

    CTRNAND transfer seems really drastic for this kind of problem. I would first rule out the sd card by renaming Nintendo 3DS and seeing if it boots then.

    UPDATE: I was browsing the ctr nand and found that the home menu is only 19 kilobytes wt*? I think the home menu fu**** up

    Other Update: i did a nand backup this morning but after deleted io hope that 2gb file didn't got overwritten so i can restore it. If i can't then goodbye nnid and friendcode..(i am also an idiot because thinking there was nothin more to do with corrupted cias i wiped the ctr nand due being bored and only backed up movable.sed)

    I need help the ctr transfer image has a serial that is not mine that is banned from online anyway to change? and get old friend code and serial?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I Found local friend code seed is emtpy only 0 in hex editor

    EDIT: I changed my serial editing a file on the ctr nand the secure info a to be accurate and now the serial match how i am supposed to get my friend code back?

    Since you wiped your ctrnand (this happens for doing random things without knowing) there's nothing you can do without a backup. You will have to follow a guide to use one of those public seeds.

    Use NTRBoot to install a ctrtransfer image

    I do not have ntrboot and never gonna have.
    I asked if there is a way to get my old friend code back by editing local friend code seed.

    Might want to reconsider your tone towards people trying to help you.

    In any case; Since it sounds like you wiped your CTRNand, you're not going to be able to recover your original lfcs_b. You will need to find and use an unbanned public seed as stated earlier.

    Yes I've been rude but i get tired of peoples saying the same things over and over again
    I am already using a public seed from a random site on the web. I only wish someone knew the lfcs.b algorithm

    Tired of people saying the same thing over and over again? We're also tired of people like you acting like cunts when we're trynna help. So tone that tilt-meter and voice box down a bit.

    You literally bricked your thing and you want to recover your friend code from it? Not gonna happen buddy, and like I said your only chance is NTRBoot with a ctrtransfer since you don't have a nand backup. People are saying the same thing over and over again because that's what you should be doing mate.

    You're never gonna have NTRboot? Then you're out of luck buddy if you can't afford $10 for a pre-ntrboot flashed flashcart yet you can afford a 3DS. Have fun with your new paperweight hehehehe.

    If people could figure out the friend code bullshit, do you think they won't tell you how to do it?

    THERE IS NO WAY TO RECOVER YOUR SYSTEM'S INFO WITHOUT A NAND BACKUP.

    Be happy that your system still works now.
