    Everything was working fine until today and I started getting an error to shut down the system every minute or so. I thought it was a game causing the crash but I receive the error while sitting at the home menu as well. Anyone have any idea whats causing this?

    Have you tried using the trouble-shooting guide at 3ds.guide?

    I've checked it and I don't see any troubleshooting for my certain issue, unfortunately.

    Hmmmm, give me a little time to scrounge up anything. This is the first time I've heard of something like this.... Did you follow a video guide by any chance?

    Thank you. And no, I followed the regular guide. Everything worked fine. It's been about a month since I've installed the CFW on it and I never had a problem until now.

    Although this may not apply to you, most home-brew apps will crash the system without WiFi. Also in my experience some apps just stop working and it helps to reinstall them over time.

    Thanks for the info. If i could even get the chance to reinstall some apps, that would be great. However, I don't get any more than 45 secs to a minute before the system crashes.

    Do you have any sort of CFW running when you experience the crash?

    No custom themes. Actually, no themes at all. I have Luma running though.

    I tried starting it up again and deleted a couple useless folders on there before I got the error. When I did, I shut it down and started it back up and those folders were back on there again as if they never were deleted. They were all empty folders btw.

    I think your SD might be corrupted... Do you have a backup of your SD?

    Press Select after boot to go to luma options, then enable ErrDisp setting. Go to home menu and let it crash. The error screen should be showing you more info, post it here.

    It's really weird because I've shut off the wifi and now it works fine.. it doesn't crash anymore. But, I'll test it again with it on and see if I can narrow it down to the Wi-Fi and if so, I'll get the error code.

    That doesn't sound like SD corruption, that sounds more like a frankenFIRM....

    sounds like a faulty/loose WiFi card, I was actually going to suggest you turn off the WiFi and test as it's actually becoming a fairly common fault having the WiFi card fail which causes the system to crash

    if the system is working consistently fine with WiFi switched off, first try reseting the WiFi board, and if that fails try testing with a replacement WiFi card

    Yep, tested the Wi-Fi thing again and it gave an error with Wi-Fi on. Here's what I got.

    Have someone's 3DS here that has the exact same problem, shutting off the wifi seems to stop the problem for me to...

    If it helps, the console seems to not be able to connect to any nearby access points for the time that it is on.
