The problem cropped up a few days ago.
I was attempting to restore an old boot.firm.bak from February (when I installed the latest Luma available at the time)
This is because my ds just wouldn't boot after it told me it needed to re-format my SD card as it was corrupted.
Now, I just get a black screen and the power LED comes on, and the only way I can boot is in safe mode, which erves no purpose as I can't connect, but that may be due to bad weather. I'm retrying a safe mode update to fix my files, but... I'm kinda bad with this stuff.

If the safe mode update doesn't work (and there is a new firmware available to use), would it be possible to forcefully (and without hardmodding, flashcarts, etc.) ((so software/cfw ONLY)) re-install Luma and GM9 to, what I'm guessing, un-brick my device?
Flashcarts are off the table because I have no idea where to get one
Hardmodding: I'm just stupid and don't wanna do that stuff.

So I want to understand the state of your device. So you have a older version of luma installed correct? Like installed into firm0

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Assuming that's what you did, put godmode9 into luma/payloads in the sd card and hold start. And install a newer version of luma, as older versions of luma pre 9.0 don't work on the latest version of the 3ds. If this is not what you did, and you removed luma cfw, and are using stock firmware... Then there is no fix that I'm aware of that could fix it.
Edit:I would also check that sd card with h2testw see if it's a fake.

Jumping ahead of yourself with the flashcarts and hardmod.

I dug out my old ARDS and i'm gonna try the NTRBOOT method. If I shouldn't then... Idk, I guess I'll find out when my ds bursts into retard-flames!

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @K3Nv2, probably cuz family guy is more disliked compared to south park
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It just does the same formula south park can press buttons without going overboard
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And bc most of the family guy budget is spent on the voice actors rather than on the animation
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Southpark could spend 30k on a animated dick and people would laugh at it
