    Hey guys,
    I have sucessfully A9LHed my new3ds a few days ago and today I tried to do that to my o3ds too, HOWEVER after the step that removes REDNand from the sd, the 3ds turned off and now wont start. (!!!!???)
    All it does is a short blue led blink. Whats happening? :ph34r:

    Nope, probably not.
    Remove the SD and boot the console.
    If it powers off it's not bricked
    On boot time, hold select and tick the autoboot sysnand .

    There should be notice on Plailect's guide reassuring users that if their 3ds turns off immediately, it's not bricked.
    Would stop a lot of these panic threads.

    If your 3DS shows a blue light but immediately turns off, it's not bricked. It means your SD isn't being recognized, or you don't have the needed files for A9LH in the root.

    If you tried Luma 5.5, also try Luma 5.2. If that doesn't work, try another SD card.

    WHa....that is most odd.
    Everything worked OK until I tried deleting (I dont know if it went through with the process) the REDNand. :o

    Deleting redNAND formats the card.... Chances are you simply don't have the files you need on said card So I'd check your ed card To make sure luma or whatever is setup and not missing.

    This is exactly what my puny mind realised now. I put the SD card in the pc and there was nothing except EMUNAND9 on it. It seems I panicked too much and didnt think straight ><
    All I have to do now is to inject FBI because for some reason its not there in health app. Oo
    Thank you for solving this guys, you are my real heroes
