    Now his 3DS is totally bricked since he has no backups.

    Sounds like FBI is more dangerous than GodMode9 because FBI has no warning dialog when entering the CTRNAND browse mode etc.

    BTW, is this the first case bricking a 3DS by mistaking deleting CTRNAND files?

    This is slightly depressing. Do you have a link? Also FBI in that case does pretty much the same thing as GodMode9.

    The link is in Chinese.
    I know one method to fix it but the bricked 3DS owner seems don't have the necessary files from other machine: LFCS, movable.sed, secureinfo_A.
    The method is:
    - Inject the 3 files before or after 9.2.0 CTRtransfer
    This method makes the console UNABLE to access e-shop etc. because Nintendo does not allow unmatched movable.sed to access them. But this is better than permanently bricked.

    It seems that CTRTRANSFER could not be processed if missing those 3 files.
    In this case, we should create folders & import those 3 files to make the CTRNAND as same as other console's CTRNAND.

    I'm more curious about what caused him to delete the whole ctrnand. Did he delete all in one operation by accident or intentionally one by one thinking to get some free space on the SD card? Didn't FBI prompt some warning info when doing operations on nand?

    You had better tell the owner but not us about this.

    Wow, I don't mean to interject into someone else's thread but... I am about to attempt to hack my new Hyrule edition 3ds next week (when it arrives) and seeing things like this make me second guess whether it's wise.

    It is, just don't do things the guide doesn't say, look at this for an example

    Don't mess with things if you don't know what they are. They could be system files and you could potentially screw up your system. By this, I mean don't do what this guy did and delete everything. Hacking your console is a painless process. Follow instructions thoroughly and you'll be fine.

    I feel a sense of sadness for people who brick their s***, it's like they've had a death in the family, heh. I tend to NOT mess with stuff once I am done jailbreaking/hacking unless there is an update to be performed. I still get nervous when updating Cobra on my PS3 and that is nearly a zero % chance of anything bad happening. I notice a lot of people on here do crazy stuff like switching back and forth between CFW and downgrading/upgrading time after time... It's no wonder you here about so many bricks. I plan on installing A9LH and Luma, I guess I am lucky to be doing this at a time when a good CFW is out.

    There are very many successful people who have hacked their consoles. You just don't hear about them as much as people who need help unbricking or confirming a brick. You've got nothing to worry about. Just follow directions and you'll be fine.

    I installed a9lh when it was in its early stages and bricking was high :P coming from rxTools to A9LH a long time ago scared me but it's worth it in the long run

    So I take it that A9LH has come a long way? How long has it been out?

    And from the topic being discuessed here it seems that the dude who bricked might have been able to recover his machine if he had stored the right backups?

    If he had the backups then it would never be a problem.
