    I recently installed a ROP loader on my 3DS, version 9.5, yes im dumb.
    Now when i try to launch any ds app, it crashes.
    Is there a way to reset the profile without formating?

    Thanks

    I dont think it works for me, i copied the "code.bin" on the SD, runned the url that is stated in the #12 post.
    The 3DS says, Error ocurred save all the data and reboot.

    :cry:

    I can access when i set the birthday to another one, but every time i exit the system settings it reverts to blank.
    On the #3dsdev they sugested me that if i want to preserve the apps i need to change the wifi module, or format.
    I dont want to lose all the data, 2 years of data is too much.
    And they said that the 3ds cant access the cfg:nor and i cant overwrite the nvram from 3ds mode.

    Things i tried so far:
    Launching a ds cart
    Launching a dsi cart
    Launching dsiware
    Launching ds wifi settings
    Loading any web based exploit

    All resulting in failures.

    Im seriously thinking about formating and forget about this.

    if you have a 9.2 NAND backup, you could restore it with the Gateway Launcher, then try downgrading to 4.2 using gateway.dg
    but it is a bit risky to downgrade, so be careful. (I am NOT responsible for any brick)

    sysnand 9.5.x, then you are out of luck!

    Reformatting the system is the only option to try get it fixed.

    Well if you have at least a NAND backup, you could do the physical NAND mod and downgrade, that's not out of the question.

    Forgot about that, that is, if he has a nand backup made, then yes indeed he can do a hardmod and flash his old nand backup back

    I doubt he wil have a NAND backup if he started messing on 9.5, I don't see why he was trying to install the DS profile exploit on 9.5 anyway :s (curiosity killed the cat I suppose, I have done dumb stuff before out of curiosity :P)
    Pretty sure from 7.x+ the NDS profile should erase itself if it detects it's been corrupted

    If his DS profile is bricked like mine was on 4.5, his only way is to format his 3DS. I was able to avoid doing so by using the web ROP loader, but I doubt this would have any effect since he is on 9.5...

    Have you tried only modifying your DS profile? Like changing your name from, let's say "test" to "test1"? Or birthday, city? anyway, modifying the DS profile?

    When I was using the 4.5 exploit and everytime I lost the the DS profile exploit and the GW installer failed to install it, I modified my DS profile name and this "wiped" the exploit corrupted.

    Give it a try.

    Thats strange.
