    It's all in the title. Every start-up button combo works, even the power off screen. If I press HOME there, it just hangs on the HOME Menu text. I've tried updating in safe mode, it succeeded, even clearing the home menu cache, to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

    There were a few cases like this, specially in the very first little O3DSeses. If it is on warranty, send it to Nintendo, if not, i hope that a more experienced member can help you.

    Sadly, it's the second case. Thanks though! :)

    It can be a silly softbrick. Try removing the battery 10 minutes. Also, if you have a DS cart, remove it.
    Good luck.
