    I got an American New 3DS non-XL and tried to hardmod it because it came with 11.0. After I put the system back together, the charge light works, but when I press the power button, nothing happens, not even for a split second.

    I double and triple checked all the connectors, so I have no idea what I messed up.

    Umm, you do... To downgrade? Unless you are talking about DsiWare Hax which you need 2nd 3ds with a exploitable system version

    Did you read the link? It clearly states that it works for all 3DS models and firmware versions 11.0 and below.

    We want to see the 3ds's hardware, just basically show us where you did your hardmod on

    Yes i did, look at Part 1. It requires a firmware downgrade

    Right, but you can do that with any firmware as a starting point. Hardmodding should be a last-ditch resort if everything else went wrong.

    You cannot downgrade without using a DsiWare Hax or a hardmod. Since Nintendo have patched arm9 exploits that allows sysupdater to downgrade the 3ds as well blocking almost all homebrew entrypoints.

    Plus op cannot access the 3ds by turning it on so now hardmodding the last chance to save the 3ds

    With him saying that he performed a hardmod, there may have been mistake and the op may have fried his 3ds by touching the circuits with the soldering iron

    If he shows us the picture, we may be able to help him resolve this.

    No, your not understanding the tutorial at all evidently.

    If you're on 11.0 you have to downgrade to 9.2, the only way this can be done is via hardmod or DSIwarehax, there is no way around it. Read the tutorial.....


    To OP is there a popping sound? Take photos of the side of the board with all ribbons hooked up, take a photo of your soldering as well.

    Bridged connection, possibly bad clips, and no beating around the bush, your soldering is completely trashed.
