    I was installing a9lh+luma on a friends new 3ds and after downgrading to 2.1.0 and installing a9lh i found that my 11.2 backup was not on the sd card so i had to do the 9.2.0 ctrtransfer step (including updating to 11.3) and fbi wouldnt install my .tik files, so in an attempt to fix it i tried to backup my nand and then restore it (which seems stupid in hindsight), from that point on my 3ds doesnt boot into sysnand but it does boot into luma decrypt9 hourglass9 etc. i assume my nand backup was corrupted, is there anyway to fix this 3ds without a working nand backup? when i boot i get a blue light and a black screen, luma is the latest release on github thank you all for your time sorry for being that guy who joins a forum just to ask whats probably a noob question

    If you can go boot into Luma config it doesn't mean you're bricked, follow the troubleshooting or post in the main Luma thread.

    Why do you still use .tik files?
