    Hi.
    Bricked my nand while trying to get otp. Where's the fun in the coldboot comfort zone, amirite? XD
    I have everything setup for soldering, pin out images too. Thing is I'm not sure whether those I have are the right ones.

    This one is supposedly correct.

    Does yellow work as an alternative GND? I would like to avoid soldering that small resistor from the first image. :rofl2:

    update:
    Hardmod successful. MD5 matches on every dump I do.
    The only problem now is that I can't write to nand. Error 1117 in both image tools I used.

    anotha one
    Solved it by gluing lock in.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Back to getting OTP. No screwing up this time.

    anotha one:
    a9lhax coldboot into aureinand.
    Good luck to anyone who is going tosolder their 3ds.

    I don't think it would, as this is CLK.

    It's really funny how you read my mind. You scare me.
    Pretty much yeah it's CLK :C

    Long story short.
    python script was missing xorpad files but it did output sysnand.bin into unbricked folder.
    I used it again with renamed xorpads and flashed it.

    So can you confirm that I'm good to go with this one?
    Even with soldering that poor little resistor.. :X

    I don't see anywhere in the guide that you need to input xorpads to use the script...

    They sit in the section 1 backups folder.

    "
    os.system('Resource\\3DSFAT16tool -d -n emuNAND_bricked.bin ctr.bin ../../Section_I/Backup/nand.fat16.xorpad')
    os.system('Resource\\3DSFAT16tool -i -o emuNAND_bricked.bin ctr.bin ../../Section_I/Backup/nand.fat16.0x4.xorpad')
    os.system('del ctr.bin')
    "

    What I did with sd adapter is bend them the other way just enough so that I could solder them.

    Thought I'd throw an update. It supposedly works with a bootrom screen if I put sdcard into laptop card-reader.
    But I guess I'll have to get one of those from the "working" list. Or try other laptops that I have around. Just not that easy after all.
    Cheers.

    I had to unscrew the main board to get access to "red-cpu-10 side b".
    It doesn't take much to put it back too.
