    So I was trying to revert my hacking of my 3ds, it was going fine til the eshop just completely stopped loading. After that I tried formatting my new 3ds to see if it would make the problem go away, only to have it freeze up I turned it off while formatting it and when I turned it on again it would just go to a completely black screen. I tried doing the recovery mode twice but it just ended up freezing when I went to set up an internet connection. It won't even go into recovery mode anymore. Is there anything I can do???? Can nintendo fix a problem like this or should I just go out and buy another new 3ds and call it a day?

    Does the blue LED stay on once you've booted it up? If so, it's a full brick. You MIGHT be able to recover it with a NAND backup if you still have A9LH, otherwise hardmod might be the only way.

    because I probably bricked it from something that had to do with hacking, so I want to remove all of the hacked data in my 3ds

    What did you do? A brick is actually hard to do since A9LH runs so early. Also, Luma stops the Nintendo firmware from editing anything that could jeopardize your A9LH.

    lol you are right you are right. So THe problem I was having before was like I couldn't download stuff that I normally could've off of my 3ds, which is why I formatted it. I was getting error codes, keeping me from downloading games from the eshop and connecting to the nnid

    honestly, formatting really should never have been your option in the first place. by doing that, im fairly certain your nintendo 3ds folder contents became dead weight on the sd card unless restoring a nand backup fixes that.

    edit: what kind of error codes did you get?

    so what can I do??? my 3ds is working fine, but I just can't get it to update, or connect to the eshop, or change any internet settings. Honestly I'm just looking for a way to delete all the files I've put on it and just restore it to vanilla, cause all of this stuff is too much for me to handle/understand
