    Hey Guys,

    my brother bricked his N3DS over a year ago by deleting a System Title through FBI.
    We can't boot the Recovery Mode :/
    The N3DS was on Firmware 9.2 (EUR).
    I heard that there are some new Methods and Information since the 33c3 event.

    Will it be, or is it, possible to unbrick the NAND with a Hardmod?
    If yes, how?

    Without a good nand backup, I'm afraid not. There's talk of a new exploit called sighax that will allow us to sign our own firms. If that ever comes, it may be possible to boot your system and restore it with ctrtransfer.

    The exploits were to install a9lh, as explained (now in plailect, but I think mine is more noob-friendly and embracing. And you can solve any questions you have by simply asking there) in my guide.

    I don't need to install A9LH at the moment on this Device. I just want to unbrick a old bricked N3DS without a good NAND Backup^^
    And there's absolutly no information about that in your Guide.

    The exploits that released during 33c3 were to help achieve that. To unbrick that N3DS, only hardmod with a backup of it.
