    Yes, backed up NAND images can only be used on the 3DS/2DS they're made from. There are ways around this but for practical purposes, SysNAND *.bin images are console unique.

    Congrats. Group effort. We (as in everyone in this thread) did it.

    Well you are done but there's still a few things you can do in the last step.
    Like fixing essential Homebrew applications and doing a nand backup

    You should give the last page a read because it could be important :)

    Yup.
    But make an essentials backup as well, GodMode9 should tell you to when you launch it. Also good to have boot9/boot11 backups and an OTP backup (which you can make from GodMode9), boot9/boot11 aren't console unique though so they aren't essential. boot9.bin and in some cases OTP as well as movable.sed (essentials backup contains movable.sed) is needed for decrypting 3DS related files on PC (useful for converting games to cia, dumping files from games, decrypting saves for use with a save editor etc), but boot11 isn't used for much.

    I wonder what the guy did to brick it? Did he say anything about it?

    I bet he used a really outdated hacking guide, god only knows what kind of method he was using. Maybe the ancient one that requires downgrading to 2.1.0, which if on a n3DS/n2DS the console is updated while the console is still on 2.1.0 it will brick as it'll be running o3DS firmware.

    Another fine example of why you shouldn't use youtube video guides.
