    I went to go and delete the 3ds folder and the boot.3dsx files as well as everything that came with the homebrew starter kit on http://smealum.github.io/3ds/ and deleted the ropbin payload file from my microSD. Then I went and redownloaded the necessary files and replaced them back on my microSD to see if maybe when I went to go try to configure menuhax that it would actually work. But when I saved and exited the settings menu, it didn't go back to my home menu, the screen stayed black for about a minute and a half, so I powered down the system. Then when I powered it back on, the blue light for the power was on, but the screen just stays black and won't go back to the home menu anymore. Help!?

    How? Just how?
    MenuHAX runs in userland and is only an exploit through the theme system, it should be impossible to brick using it.

    Step 1: Remove sd card.
    Step 2: Turn on
    Step 3: Put sd card back in
    Step 4: Change theme
    Step 5: ???
    Step 6: Profit!

    All questions aside, just boot into the system with the SD card remove and change the theme. That should fix the corrupted theme.

    Okay, so I went to go and remove the microSD from the system while it was off, then I turned the system back on. Then once the system was on and the home menu showed up, I put the microSD back in, but before I could go into the little menu to go and change the theme, the whole screen froze completely..

    Change the theme before putting the SD card back into the system.

    You can't change themes without an SD card in the system.

    Umm yo can't do that, cause the theme data is stored on the sd card....

    You need the sd card to use theme data. Use a pc to delete theme data.

    sdiconhax works differently than themehax so changing themes might not fix the issue.

    A temp solution may be to rename the Nintendo 3ds folder to _Nintendo 3ds and at least that should allow you to do stuff.

    You should be able to just delete
    G:\Nintendo 3DS\long hex number\another long hex number\extdata\00000000\0000008f <--this folder

    And that will restore everything to normal. You will have to unwrap a bunch of presents though.

    "Allow me to do stuff as in being able to use my 3ds normally? Or would I be able to use homebrew still?"
