    If there is any way possible, I'd like to know, I don't want to buy another 3ds. For some reason I can still access the luna3ds and hourglass9 menus if this helps any.

    If you have a NAND backup you can restore that. Otherwise, you'll need a hardmod or a new console. What did you do to brick it anyway?

    Hardmod won't help if he doesn't have NAND backup.

    Exactly. Other console's NAND will not work since the firms and xorpads will be different.

    Hold select then press power button. If a screen pops up then your not bricked.

    Are you using menuhax or a9lh? And are you using emunand because it sounds that it's just emunand that's bricked

    Menuhax or A9?

    I power on the 3ds while holding select/start. Also I don't have a NAND backup.

    There's nothing you can do without a nand backup.

    If your using emunand then making a new one from Sysnand will fix it, if your using Sysnand a9 then you can't do anything,why exactly don't you have a nand backup? Your forced to have one when actually doing the tutorial to getting a9

    Making a CTRNAND transfer should "unbrick" it. https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/9.2.0-ctrtransfer
