So I just turned on my 3ds and Put it to sleep mode because I need to go somewhere and brought it along with me I opened it, it was still able to go to the home menu but I put it to sleep mode Immidiately because I only went Ahead to check up on it and now after I got back and opened it again it doesn't go to the home menu anymore and I'm left with a black screen but all the lights are still on, I powered it off and I can launch GM9 and The Luma Settings but I just can't get to the home menu, is there anyway to fix this? I really need help
My luma version is currently:
10.1.3
And My GodMode9 is:
1.9.1
I installed my CFW with Boot9Strap
Please I really need help : (
I think walking while on sleep mode was the one that cause the problem or it might have been because I put it to sleep mode Immidiately after I just opened it from sleep mode

The screws in my 3ds doesn't seem to budge and I'm afraid to put Alot of pressure since it might strip the screws are there any other ways besides this?
You'll need a Philips PH00 sized screwdriver to remove the battery cover.

If they strip, they'll have to manually hand drilled out like this.

Because you find the cover difficult to remove, your battery might be swollen / expanded / bloated / ballooned / bulging / puffed, and this might be what's causing the screws to be difficult to remove.
A battery that's like this can damage the 3DS internal components from too much pressure and is in danger of exploding, causing a fire.

Ah, no problem. Don't worry about it. Sometimes, that black screen symptom stays there and doesn't boot to HOME Menu. 3DS systems with custom firmware can at times be really derpy for no apparent reasons.

Just to be safe because you found the screws were hard to remove, check your battery anyway when you get a chance. Don't want to one day find out a bad battery was slowly killing the o3DS from prolong bending to the motherboard.
