    My 3DS has been softbricked since 2016. Today me and a friend decided to attempt to unbrick it using the method found on 3ds hacks guide (I cannot post a link as this forum forbids me because I don't have over 5 posts)

    However, at the Luma 3DS part (Section IV, Step 8) when I press (Start) to save and reboot, it stays on a black screen. If I delete the config.bin file in the Luma folder on the SD Card then the 3ds boots into the Luma Configuration menu again. I am clueless as to how to fix this issue.

    So I've tried every version of Luma and anything that's 8.1 and after gives me this screen except for v10.0.1 and I've got no idea how to fix it.

    Before we're too hasty with CTRTransfer, first try the battery trick.
