    ok so i tried to update sysnand and it dod not go well.
    i downloaded update ver 9.0 in the form of a bunch of cia files from 3dnus and launched rxtools into sysnand mode and installed all the cia at once using L+R+A in bigbluemenu (titlemanager) and some of the apps says title already installed and after it finished the installation i rebooted and was greeted with a black screen and power lightbut thats all it does. recovery mode doent work (never did work) cant do anything with it. i did make a nand backup before but i dont have any tools to restore it with...

    2 mistakes you did :
    - You used the rxmode instead of the devmode
    - You used a cia manager instead of sysupdater.
    This has been repeated many times, you should have searched first...
    Now your only option is an hardware mod.

    You should also have downloaded the cia files from that iso site cause 3DNUS is missing some files for older sysnand versions.
    AND you should have searched/asked first before doing so, like @VerseHell said:
    - DEVMODE in rxTools
    - Then install FBI cia manager to install "sysupdater"
    - Then use sysupdater to update your 3DS
    (You first needed to download the 9.2 system cia files from that iso sitre and put them on your 3DS SD)
