    Earlier today I decided to put more hacked games on my 3DS. While I was getting my 3DS ready I accidentally dropped it. Nothing bad usually happens when I've dropped it before so I wasn't really worried. I download of the stuff onto my SD card and everything was going smoothly that was until I put my card in my 3DS. whenever I turn on my DS 2DS the fact that the card had just been taken out while the DS was running. I tried to see if there's something wrong with my card so I stuck it back in my card reader on my computer. It worked fine but I tried it again this time accidentally put it in upside down when I pulled out my card it cracked in half. My 3DS can no longer be used because it was hacked and won't turn on without the card. All my game data is lost I had a lot of have two games some of them I got really far in like mother 3 and Pokemon. the best thing I can do is probably buy a new DS and start all over again. I don't think of anything that can help my DS. I don't know I think this is it.

    Yes the CFW is just a file that the 3DS boots off of.

    CFW is written to the guts of the 3ds console. a new sd card or even a system format isnt going to get rid of it. The file the system boots off of is a payload file for the cfw.

    Next time be sure to dump your OTP, secureinfo_a, and movable.sed and keep multiple copies somewhere safe (as long as you have those you can decrypt and recover 3ds saves even if your system dies) and always back up your SD card every time you put it in your computer if you have made any significant progress. As for mother 3 you can always use cheats and overclocking (using PC based emulators) to get back where you were though you have to be though you have to be careful as often times "infinite" codes are really "always have 99/9999/99999999" codes rather than true infinite (hint: for those you can use an online hex to decimal converter to change the value to whatever you want) but things like invincibility and 2x/3x/5x experience and money after battle should be fine. For pokemon there are save editors and again, using things like invincibility codes and always successful capture codes to help get back to where you were without having to spend all that time grinding.

    Or find someone else's save that is close and use a save editor to make it as close as possible.

    It just turns on and off?
    What if you hold Start or Select while turning it on?

    Wait... I thought if I re format my system it will restore everything. The SYS is gone from the settings and no rosalina menu or cfw apps.

    That's because you don't have the payload required to boot the custom firmware in your console the payload is what you would be downloading from the luma release site that I linked you depending on whether your entry point was bs9 or a9lh you will need The .Firm or .Bin file respectively

    My nephew was going to throw away his 2DS as both screens are broken, and I thought I could get it fixed for cheap, but turns out a used 2DS is pretty cheap nowadays.

    Maybe useful for parts, I guess.
