    And it appeared frozen on "Getting CIA Information".
    I shut down the 3DS and now I just get a black screen.
    Backlight is on. Blue LED is on, Wireless is on and now I get a black screen.
    Is it bricked?

    Take out the SD card and try to boot up. If that doesn't work, try holding L+R+Up+A on boot and see if that lets you clean update back to 10.3

    Alright.
    EDIT: So taking out SD didn't work, nor did holding L+R+Up+A.

    Hehe, nope. I read the disclaimer and it said wait, however I believed it to be frozen.

    With the L R Up A, hold it before pressing power and continue holding until something turns up on the screen (if nothing happens in 20 seconds or so you're probably bricked).
