    I think someone made a tool privately to brick DS mode unless you format, either that or take a nine volt battery to the nand :)

    Open it up, short two of the data connections that you use for the hardmod
    you can make it with some electrical tape and a wire and you can easily remove it later
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    all this because you failed to follow a guide? why do you want to destroy a piece of hardware that costs over $100/$200 because you couldn't follow directions?

    That's really no reason to brick your console, if you're willing to break it why not try hard-modding it instead? Which on one hand might brick it, but on the other hand allow you to downgrade and try a9lh again if you succeed.

    simply plug the nand to a computer USB port is good enough :)

    Now now guys, the guy wants to brick his 3DS, let him brick it. ;)

    A quick and easy way is to drop it back first without it case into a tub of water, which will short out the NAND.

    Several dead. Only 5 work. And one is a dev unit. But notice the sheer lack of N3DSes? :P

    @NoNAND just export a DSiWare to "wnand:/" (not sure about this one), or any sensitive path. This is doable from ARM11 userland (provided you take over System settings)

    Just hardmod it don't break it because you can't pirate, there will be new exploits eventually then you will regret it.
    Just hardmod or wait.

    Why not send it to gamequest1 to get it hardmoded/downgraded since he is located in the UK?

    You could also sell it for a little money back. But hey if your mind's made up your mind's made up.
