    Ok, so here's what happened:
    I was installing cfw on my new3DS XL (11.3.0-36U) and followed 3ds.guide to the letter until the 'Installing arm9loaderhax' part. I went onto the browser to http://2xrsa.3ds.guide and it gave me a glitched bottom screen and froze. I shut off the 3DS (first fuckup) and turned it back on. I saw glitched colors on both screens (the upper screen was flickering colors and the bottom one was orange-y). I then thought I could fix it by going back to http://2xrsa.3ds.guide (it worked now) and doing a full install (second fuckup). Once it finished and pressed a button to shut down, I realized I forgot to back up <serial_number>_nand.bin (third fuckup). I haven't touched my 3DS yet, it's turned off and I'm scared to do anything else. TL;DR I'm a dumbass.

    Please help! What should I do?

    I'm mostly scared about the glitched colors. Any way to fix that?
    Also, how do you do the CTR transfer? I'm kind of a noob.

    I'm following the rest of the guide, maybe the colors will be fixed.

    Glitched colors are not a problem, it happens sometimes.

    See 3ds.guide

    Glitched colors are normal afaik, since there is no update 2 for N3DS.

    Assuming you have A9LH, [Pres select on boot if luma menu opens you have a9lh], try to follow this:
    https://3ds.guide/9.2.0-ctrtransfer/

    Enjoy!

    Ok thank you both!

    Edit: Weird. Luma3DS booted up even though I didn't hold down select.

    Edit 2: Glitched colors are fixed. Thanks so much!

    Don't worry. It will only do that if there is no config.bin in your /luma/ directory.
