    [FIXED] so I was fiddling around with system files on sysnand titles and I may have messed up a few files or such... my system settings won't boot and I was wondering if there is anyone with an old 3ds that could tell me how to recover or fix these files. My system does still boot however. I'm on 11.4 and have no nand backups before this event. can I recover these files or wait till I can downgrade on 11.4 to recover the files

    but you can probably restore a nand backup.
    please tell me you have one.

    Download the H&S and System Settings apps using 3DNUS, you'll need the title IDs and versions of them which you can find in this list: https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Title_list
    The hex numbers in the title of each section is the first half of the title ID, and "TID Low" is the second half. Double check that you get the right ones for your region and 3DS model (not all titles have a separate n3DS version but a lot do)
    You can install them with FBI.

    I would have suggested that as well, but without System Settings it'll be difficult for him to perform a system update, and deleting System Settings just seems like a bad idea in general.

    Yeah, NEVER use recovery mode. It will remove hacks. When you get your hands on a laptop, do what the previous posts said and reinstall h&s/system settings.

    Wait what? Luma has patches to the SAFE_FIRM so that when you used the Recovery, it didn't remove the corrupt FIRM(this is back in the old A9LH days)

    And I really doubt recovery would remove the exploited boot0/1 (since for the system, it's still the same thing for what I know)

    (If I'm wrong, please explain to me since I'm not perfect and I prefer to learn and admit that I'm wrong :D )
