    doing a hardmod on a new 3ds is a bitch, there is a way to do a factory reset on your console by pressing certain buttons on boot but i forgot how to do it.

    Hey, on 2.1 it takes a while for the system to boot up

    At least you don't need a hardmod, I had that happen with a o3ds i did, it had a ambassador cert on it and when i downgraded to 2.1 it bricked and i had to do a hardmod to recover

    What? You mean the notification led? Do you also mean that your console works now? If yes, this could confirm that MCU acts weird on 2.1 New3dses as the notification led is controlled by the MCU as well as the home button. When exactly did you press it?

    You're talking about the screen flashing colors right? That's normal for N3DS 2.1 downgrades.
    Don't give up, you've gotten this far and I have no doubt that it's possible to A9LH the console. Just make sure you have all the right files on SD. arm9.bin, arm11.bin and SafeA9LHInstaller.dat need to be on SD card root for the 2xrsa link to work.
    The browser exploit can be unstable, if it doesn't work after several tries try resetting browser data from the browser settings, and if that doesn't help try rebooting, and alternate between those two things until it works.

    Didn't a N3DS get hardbriked if you turn it out in 2.1? I've been out the scene for a while, but I do remember this much.

    No it doesnt brick if you turn it off, it will brick if you put it in sleep mode so whatever you do dont close the lid

    I remember the 2.1 downgrade being unstable sometimes, and sometimes freezing on going to home menu. try clearing the browser and re-trying :)

    I just had to turn the device on with the SD card Out of the device, then put it back in once i was in the home menu
    I didn't think the sd card would cause the black screen, but whatever its fixed now
