    For some reason my TWL is bricked even a clean twln injection still throws an error so I plan on doing a full system restore
    I've backed up ctrnand and sysnand, just in case but is there anything else I need to do I may have over looked

    Do you mean restore it to stock or reformat it with the system settings? I don't think reformatting with the system setting will actually fix this.

    Yes system settings I was told to go nuclear and see if it would fix the issue I removed the sd card before hand also will restoring ctrnand give me back my NNID?

    System reformat doesn't fix the issue. It literally just reformat the system in the same way deleting a file removes it from your PC. It won't re-apply broken patches.
    Did you use the Guide or Luma3DS's troubleshooting?

    It just fixed it for me and yes I used those CIA multiple times even when I got a clean twln dump, a system settings format just fixed my bricked DS/DSI mode just now @Apache Thunder

    I think I am mixing this problem up with the old TWL patches.
    I will take note of this issue for future reference.
