    Do you have a CFW on the root of your SD card?

    When you turn your 3DS on, does it automatically turn off?

    Is there an emunand on the Sd card?

    if so,

    Try reinand since it's easiest.

    Put this file in the root of the sd card if your arm9hax doesn't have screen init:

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/source-release-reinand-n3ds-cfw.394309/page-193#post-6080515


    If you do have screen init:

    https://github.com/Reisyukaku/ReiNand/releases/download/v3.3/ReiNandv3.3.a9lh.zip

    Finally, you also need these files/folders on the root of sd card with either option above:

    https://github.com/Reisyukaku/ReiNand/releases/download/v3.3/ReiNandv3.3.zip


    If you boot up then you're good to go- update your emunand if needed!

    Also: I live in USA/Chicago and hard modded my 3ds xl twice from bricks. It was a temp hard mod so I removed the wiring when I was done. If you want a perm hard mod access port id suggest working with someone else.

    .
    Same thing with my N3ds XL FEF Edition, soft bricked on downgrading to fw 2.1.
    Used Cakes then AuReiNAND, same results. had to do the hardmod & restore (2x) to got it to boot.
    Strange cos i got my O3ds XL & black N3ds XL to A9LH with no problem.
    might try one more time and call it a day.

    Same shit happened to me. Flashed the 2.0 image and the screen doesn't cut on. I can get to recovery mode but it never finishes the update and for some reason I can't get the fucking screws out to hardmod. Fml.
