    Hello guys! I've been searching in google for 2 days and I couldn't find any solution so I decided to create an account and ask for help here. So my problem as the title says, I cant launch any programs except for the ones at the top of the botton screen like friend list and the browser but opening theme make my 3ds freeze. The upper screen doesnt show nothing, the battery bar is not showing and the icons of the programs wont show too. So the problem started when I downgraded my 3ds to 2.1 and then I updated with Animal crossing NL to 4.2, after this I was trying to run rxTools through browser but I couldn't so I decided to update through another game to 8.1 or 8.2 and after that my 3ds got this problem, any idea how to fix this, Im trying to install arm9 and then install luma and all that stuff which I did to another of my 3ds to get a cfw and inject FBI in 11.3 but in this 3ds I cant access to homebrew. Also doing the recovery mode with up+a+L+R causes an error while updating so.... Any Help please??
    Thx

    Were you following 3ds.guide when you downgraded? And if so did you complete the install a9lh section? If you did both you should have a nand backup. Try restoring it with hourglass9. But if you didn't I'm afraid i can't help you.

    I tried that, but I cant access to the menu of hourglass or godmode by pressing start+power botton of my 3ds, is there anyway to access to the hourglass menu?

    You followed 3ds.guide? then you must have Luma3DS.
    Make sure you have .bin luma payloads files in sd:/luma/payloads/payload.bin
    If you have a old luma3ds version, and doesn't work, try renaming .bin payload to START_PAYLOAD.bin
    And make sure you have Hourglass9 Bin file in payloads folder

    You can also try to boot without the sd card.

    normally when you're in the firmware 2.1 you're supposed to directly continue the installation and not doing anything else
    because of it it may not work as expected

    Uhh, sadly, in 11.3 hardmod was fixed...
    The other way is only CTRTransfer

    You have two payload that are prefixed with "start_", try to rename start_godmode.bin to x_godmode.bin and then turn on your 3DS with start (for hourglass) or x (for godmode) pressed.

    Doesn't work :S maybe because I didn't reach to install luma in the tutorial... Im trying to reach homebrew menu with the oothax cuz I have another 3ds with cfw and homebrew acces but I cant manage to get into the game in the 3ds because I cant open any apps, I tried the A+X+B+Y+R bottons while booting but the game wont open it just goes to the home menu

    If you have another 3ds, you can try CTRTransfer.
    Also, try booting without SD card and lauch some apps without the sd.
    If you can still launch homebrew launcher, try to update Luma3DS and try lanching hourglass9 and then, restore nand (keep alph9)

    Backup your another 3DS Nand.
    Do System Transfer
    System Transfer can help restore corrupted nand, and delete corrupted things.
    After that, restore your other 3DS Nand.
    Im not sure if this is the correct progress.

    Also, then is the system, it's soft-bricked i think.

    Cool.
    When you boot a app, try to waiting some minutes, and see if works still...
    Just remember, using other nand in your 3DS (soft-bricked) will not work.Also if you do that, you will hardbrick. (and hardmod is patched in 11.3, so it's a good-bye to your 3DS)

    it seems you have a horrible frankenfirm at the moment that doesn't work, and need a hardmod to reflash your nand backup and start over.

    The OPs broken system is NOT on 11.3, it's on 8.2 frankenfirm.

    Since nothing launches, dsiwarehax won't work.

    Even if it were on 11.3, hardmod can ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS restore a nand backup, because that backup passes the bootrom check without modification. ctrtransfer can only be done if you have arm9 access to modify the image and fix the crypto.

    hardmod DOWNGRADE is patched.
    hardmod full restore of nand backup is not, and can NEVER be patched.
    please stop with the misinformation.

    his WORKING 3ds has 11.3

    his broken one has 8.2 frankenfirm.
