    So i was trying the nds forwarder (with r4 card) and one of the games was corrupted (couldnt start it or remove it with FBI or data management) so i installed nasa cia manager trying to get rid of it but with no avail.

    I came back to the home menu and only the Y button and everytime i try to start an app, the console freezes.

    Because im a idiot, last week i did the arm9 guide in my O3DS and by mistake replaced my NE3DS nand with the O3DS one. So im kinda lost in what to do :/

    Sorry for the long post.

    Restore the right NAND backup, or if you don't have one, try a 9.2 CTR transfer.

    Put the bin from Decrypt9 in your luma/payloads folder and name it something like up_Decrypt9.bin. Then hold up on the D-pad on boot.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    That won't work with o3ds firm0/firm1. You need a hardmod.

    In the first post, did you mean you lose you N3DS nandmin.bin file (by replacing it with O3DS one).
    Not restoring the O3DS nandmin.bin to N3DS, Am I right?

    OK, then your system doesn't brick. But, kind of something broken.
    Try what @Quantumcat suggest, since you lose your nand backup, only solution is 9.2 CTR transfer.

    Everything seems to be working fine. Im at the step where it tells me to update using the System Update. I know that most updates are safe with A9h and Luma, but i just wanna if i can do it given that it is 11.3 update and im not sure wethere there might be some conflit there or not with what i have.

    Thanks again for the help!

    1. Before booting homebrew launcher, you need to disable Clock + L2 setting in Luma3DS (Pressing Select while Booting the console) Because, Luma3DS 6.6 Stable having a problem with robbin payload if that option is turn on.
    2. a few games featuring stuttering.
    But don't worry, the next stable version shouldn't have this problem. You can go A9LH and update Luma3DS later when the next version out.

    Thanks again.

    Im lost. So after i update it, do i follow the rest of the guide? What are the things that i have installed after the 9.2 CTR transfer? I lost all my tickets aside from the hloacher, but i dont really care about that aside from some save files.

    Im just a little paranoid given that i almost bricked the console without even knowing how, so i wanna make sure i have the stuff right.

    I was thinking about cleansing the SD Card, but what things are safe to remove and others not?

    When you reinstall the title you lose, you should be able geting a game with a save back.
    But, since I never done this, may be @Quantumcat can give you a better answer.

    Yeah your saves should stay, and be available when you reinstall the games/tickets for games. Assuming you have the same NAND (no system format or transfer) and same Nintendo 3DS folder.

    I wanted to nuke my SD Card, but i wanted to know which files are essential, aside from the 3DS folder. Which ones should i remove or keep?

    Im a little bit paranoid with this kinda random brick.

    You only need arm9loaderhax.bin to boot the system (if you didn't follow moving arm9loaderhax.bin to CTR NAND in the guide) and the Nintendo 3DS folder for your games and saves.
