    I was hacking my 3ds and then i made a wrong step everything was okay i did everything on the guide but just skipped the part of backing it up (so everything was working fine) i had 2.1.0 version and i could play and all of that but then i went to sleep and now my 3ds doesnt turn on it gets a black screen and the safe mode doesnt open it appears whats in the title it has gotten bricked? Or can i do something from the sd card ? Erasing something?

    You might have missed the part where it says don't close the lid or you brick too.

    Sorry to say this, but if you put a new 3ds into sleep mode on 2.1.0 it hard bricks. (That is if you WERE using a n3ds)

    Yay for sleep mode bricks!
    if its a New 3ds or a N3DS XL you bricked it. Sleep mode on 2.1.0 bricks...

    You should never skip parts if you don't know what you are doing. And honestly shouldn't put your system into sleep mode, you should have just finished the entire guide before getting comfortable. Let this be a lesson to not skip steps and to properly research before hand. Also make backups, seriously, you are risking bricking your system. Even if it's not bricked.

    But did you try deleting the home menu extdata?

    Black screen on SysNAND boot

    Try booting with your SD card out, and then reinserting it after booting.
    Power off your 3DS by holding down the power button.
    Take out the SD card.
    Power on the 3DS.
    When the home menu appears, reinsert your SD card.
    If this worked, you should Clear Home Menu’s extdata by navigating to the following folder on your SD card: /Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000/
    EUR Region: Delete 00000098
    JPN Region: Delete 00000082
    USA Region: Delete 0000008f
    CHN Region: Delete 000000A1
    KOR Region: Delete 000000A9
    TWN Region: Delete 000000B1

    No, it won't help. Just follow that simple little guide.
    You are already in too deep. Deleting your SD card data will not fix this issue

    Then it appears you may have bricked your system. You could restore it with a hardmod, but you need a NAND backup to restore from.

    Does your led stay on when you boot to a black screen? Or does the blue led flicker on and turn off?
