    Lemme explain something to you guys ok. I seriously messed up in december when I wasn't thinking and updated my 3DS to 4.0 from 2.1 .........I feel like an idiot for doing that. And now after being stupid and thinking updating VIA settings would work. My 3DS now boots up to an error screen. Lights still work, sound still plays. Screen is black on top and displays an error on the bottom. The only way to fix is a hardmod. I just hope it's not too expensive to send it to that VB_Encryption guy.

    You could always wait till NTRBootHax to unbrick the unit..

    As already mentioned, when NTRBootHax is released, you should be able to unbrick your system.
