    So, I see the ban issues so I pull mine out of the drawer. Well, it won't even turn on. I plugged in the charger to see if I just forgot to turn it off, etc.

    After 30 mins, even with the charger still plugged in, it still won't turn on.

    I get a blue light, then it just fades out. Doesn't blink, stay active, etc. Any ideas?

    I don't remember which method I used to hack it. :(

    That's why it's not booting. Assuming you are using a9hl, you end to put an SD card with arm9loaderhax.bin on it

    you can copy those files over to the new card, but i advise you to upgrade to boot9strap from a9lh now that you're at it

    Reading over it. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do it. :( This might be a little too much for me. I'll read it again, and again...

    then just copy the files you backed up to the sd and then upgrade to b9s at a later time

    I'm going to go with the guide you linked to. 3dsafe part at the top, do I need that since I have a new 3ds? or do I just start with the new 3ds part, and go down from there.
