    When trying to update my emunand with a legit copy of smash brothers I somehow bricked my 3ds. How screwed am I?

    Depends. Did you do a NAND backup?

    Good Job. If you don't have a orginal NAND Backup, you can't repair your 3DS.
    You can restore your NANDBackup with the HardMod (if you have a NAND Backup)

    Does updating emunand with legit cards always lead to a brick? :wtf: I once updated my emunand with a rom, everything went fine.

    When you try to update your EmuNAND with a retail Cartridge, it will update your SysNAND

    Are you 100% positive that you had set up EmuNand before updating with the Smash Cartridge?

    Good to know. And in his case it also has caused a brick?! Has he done anything wrong?​

    I'm not really sure about why it bricks, but everytime when someone tried to do this, their console bricked.
    In the Tutorial Thread, there was a Warning to not update EmuNAND with retail Cartridges.

    You have to HardMod your 3DS to restore your backupped nand.

    Updating with a ROM works perfectly. Sad that you used a Retail Cartridge.

    But even if it updated my sysnand, why would it get bricked then? Wouldn't it just update normally?
