    Just installed ReiNand 31 and updated emunand to 10.4.
    Now whenever i start emunand it say Preparing Home menu do not turn system off then it freeze into black screen.
    It is not menuhax because i dont have menuhax.

    I tried rebooting lot of times but never worked...
    then I tried rxtool and it boot to black screen without the dialog so i dont think i brick emunand:)
    edit: already said this is not menu hax problem!!!! I dont have meunuhax installed so dont tell anyone this is a menhax problem.
    EDIT2: got it working now
    for anyone with same problem, please use neighbor's wifi with different ISP and do NOT use auto dns which caused me many problem

    edit 3: system setting now freeze emunand

    how much time did you wait on the black screen using reinand? the first boot up after the update can take a couple of minutes.

    rxtools still hasnt support for 9.5+ so black screen seems normal, did you get the new firmware.bin for reinand 3.1? you cant use the 3.0 one anymore

    Also swapping back to rxTools on a 10.4 emuNAND on the N3DS won't fix the problem as rxTools doesn't have 10.4 support yet.

    Just wanted to ask the same thing. Several people in my tutorial have that problem, the update goes through, says preparing home menu and then it goes black. You can still press power and get the standby screen but home menu doesn't appear. So it's kind of a soft brick.

    That has nothing to do with incompatible cfw or wrong firmware file, if that were the case, it would just black screen from the beginning and not even load the emunand. (like it does for him with rxtools as it just not supports 10.4 yet)

    I would also like to know the reason of that and how to fix. Faulty update? Something wrong in the emunand at the first place?

    Maybe it's also downgrade related?

    Restoring fixes it, it's just like before then.

    That is the question.

    Are you on a downgraded console?

    A number of people had the same issue when updating their emuNAND to 9.5 back then as well. There are 2 possible fixes - first, see if removing the profile folder of the emuNAND (move it off the SD card) helps. If that works, move the contents back onto the SD card, but do not overwrite any of the new files in the new profile folder that should be automatically generated again. If it doesn't, formatting your sysnand again and starting over may help.

    Could also be menuhax related.
