    I reset my O3DS XL thinking that it would delete a ton of CIA's I had installed, since it was taking up a lot of space on my SD Card... Then I remembered that resetting only clears the sysNAND memory, not the SD Card. So, I formatted my SD Card. That was a very stupid mistake, since now, I am unable to boot into my 3DS. I followed Plailect's guide to reinstall Luma onto my SD Card, but I still cannot boot.... I have my OTP.bin backed up and have restored it to its proper location on the SD Card, but that didn't help. There must be some way I can get my console to boot again! PLEASE help me! :'(

    does your 3ds shut off immediately when the sd card is not in the 3ds?
    do you have a9lh?

    edit: you obviously do have a9lh

    To boot on A9LH you need an arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD. You have anything akin to that?

    Do you have arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD card? That is a file that is needed to boot.

    Yes, yes, yes, and yes. I do have arm9loaderhax.bin on the root, but it also does shut off immediately after I attempt to boot even if I do have the SD card inserted.

    I can't do Select, or Start to load the Luma or Hourglass9 menus. It still immediately shuts off

    EDIT: I also can't use R to boot.

    I am 100% certain that it is not the SD. It can't be. It was working just fine before I formatted it. Would this have anything to do with EmuNAND?

    Well, I had a CFW.... I'm confused right now I feel stupid :rofl2: Does installing a CFW not mean you have an EmuNAND?

    Did you follow the entirety of the new version of Plailect's guide from Part 1 to Part 3? If you did, you should not have an emuNAND. If you followed the old version of Plailect's guide, you probably stopped at Part 3 and didn't continue on.

    Then you do not have an EmuNAND. I don't know what to tell you because having arm9loaderhax.bin on your SD card root should've let you boot your system. All you did was format both your system and your SD card, right? Did you format your SD card to something other than FAT32?

    Self-answer. Try another SD just in case.

    I will as soon as I finish attempting to restore my SD Card... I only wiped it once, so I'm using EaseUS Data Recovery to try and scan for lost data... My card reader only supports one disk at a time, so I have to wait until this is done before I try using a different SD
