    I softBricked my 2ds from attempting to download Luma CFW. When I try to go into recovery mode I get to the update and get the error message:"An error occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted". I've tried getting closer to internet router, switching sd card, and using no sd at all. Also my top screen is zoomed into the top left corner. Please help otherwise i don't know what to do. Thank you.

    What specifically happens when you power on your 2DS without an SD card?

    there's a warning at the top about using a corrupt sd card. I'm not sure if that's only when installing a9lh though. r u sure the sd card is fine?

    So have you successfully installed A9LH or not? Did you perform a 2.1.0 ctrtransfer? Have you tried turning on your 2DS without the SD card? Why are you going into recovery mode in the first place? Did you remember to delete your home menu extdata from your SD? You need to give us more information.

    Well, check the files9 folder on your SD and tell us if there's a large file named NANDmin.bin (or something similar).

    This has nothing to do with Luma3DS if you haven't actually installed A9LH yet (also note that Luma3DS and safehax are not things that are 'installed'). What happens when you try to boot your 2DS normally?

    Please answer the rest of our questions. Specifically, what happens when you boot without the SD card? Be very specific.

    Does the 2DS turn itself off after a couple of seconds?
