    Over the past few days I've tried hacking my 3ds and I found that I regretted it massively. Is there any way I can revert it to factory settings without, luma, a9lh, or any of these extra apps??

    1) Why? maybe the problem can be fixed
    2) you need a pre-a9lh nand backup

    I don't think I made a pre-a9lh nand backup, maybe on my other computer, but I thought you had to hack a 3ds to get the nand data?

    Which tutorial/guide did you use? 3ds.guide has a step where a backup is made on the start

    First, why do you regret it? There are many ways to make it appear exactly like a retail 3ds.

    I would just keep a9lh. If you ever feel like you are about to do something stupid do some research before doing it though as that can help you decide if you want to do that thing or not.

    If you've already installed A9LH, it is highly recommended that you keep it. What is the problem you're having that has caused you to regret it massively?

    I can't update, or redownload any of my software, or just have my 3ds be as it was before I hacked it

    1. What system version is your 3DS on?
    2. Do you have a DNS setup in your internet settings?
    3. What error are you getting?

    9.2.0. I think it's still auto but I don't know, everytime I go to internet settings the 3ds freezes up.

    have you tried booting to Safe Mode? if net is disabled (flipped wifi switch on O3DS/turned off last boot N3DS)you should get an option "Would you like to Configure your internet settings?"

    People can help you with those problems, but uninstalling a9lh is VERY not recommended.

    booting to safe mode was where it started for me. I would go to configure the internet settings and it would just freeze up. This was after formatting the 3ds twice. The first time everything worked but as a normal 3ds would but then the eshop wouldjust not load. So I tried formatting to fix that problem and ended up bricking my system .

    but yeah if anyone can help me with these problems that'd be great, I just want my new 3ds to work again.

    I was able to fix the bricked console by loading in an old sysnand through decrypt9.

    What guide did you use to install a9lh in the first place?

    First of all, good choice :)

    Second, did you make a backup of your sysNAND on 11.2?

    I think I have a much older one on my mac, but I thought you had to hack the 3ds to get the sysnand and that stuff.

    but as of now, no I don't have a back up of my 11.2 sysnand.

    As part of the guide, it tells you to make a backup.

    Im not sure what you can do here, the best option would probably to be attempting the a9lh install again.
