    Hey folks,

    So I was attempting to change my PAL 2DS to Korean and got frustrated when it didn't work. In my hast I reformatted the console to try and start again and now it looks like the attached pic... It won't let me get past the 3D slider screen as a 2DS hasn't got one lol!

    Any help or just bin the console?

    Cheers! :D

    I think your only options are to hardmod and reflash a nand backup.
    Or to enter recovery mode and update to 11.1.

    If he was attempting a region change then it most likey does have A9LH.

    I have a backup of the NAND but sadly the whole reason I wanted to start again is because it wouldn't let me install A9LH :(

    I can boot in recovery mode and update to latest firmware so at least it won't be useless... Maybe give it to my little bro :)

    edit: wouldn't even let me update :(

    It's basically a brick, the plailect guide clearly says in bold. Don't format your 2ds on firmware lower than 6.0. It will result in a brick AKA you will not be able to pass the initial setup screen ever.

    This settles it, hardmod it, or sell it for parts...

    isn't there a key combination to allow you to load gamecards and bypass the initial setup. you could launch an exploit and restore a nand backup.

    i know there are payloads for 4.5 and above and 2.1. but yes, cubic ninja would be needed.

    OP: what firmware are you running?

    If he is not stuck, then whatever he does to fix it, add issue ticket to add to plailect guide. Although, I've seen other threads like this and I think he's stuck....

    Bruhhhh... I think he's full soft-bricked, I have seen a few other threads and no one has seemed to find a way past this except for using Hardmode9 :).

    You say that you have a nand backup, hardmod it and flash the backup, start over.
