    My o3ds is stuck on a black screen after formatting like in Plailect's guide. I had downgraded to 9.2 from 10.3 and the system settings wouldn't open (franken firmware?). I foolishly decided to progress through Plailect's guide, making it up to the part where I used Tiny Format to wipe Sysnand. When I had rebooted, I came to a black screen. Troubleshooting, I took my sd out, to get the same result. I went into recovery mode, set up my wifi, and tried to update, when I get the message: "An error has occured. Unable to update. The system will now turn off." Is there any way to recover this? If not, I understand.

    Have you made a backup of the 9.2 sysnand? Because i think the only solution to save your 3ds is an hardmod.
    Edit: yeah, i think the problem was the franken firmware...

    Need a hardmod to recover, providing you have a nand backup.

    OK, maybe you can ask for nintendo to repair it (but expensive), or buy another one... with an exploitable firmware!!! :D

    Aren't both practically the same price nowadays...? Anyway, that wasn't my 3ds, I was hacking it for them. :blink:

    Is there an emunand? If there is you can extract it from the sd card and inject it to sysnand. You would still need a hardmod.

    No, the exact opposite, I used the franken firmware recovery mode to set my wifi, right before finding out it failed.

    Gambia, The
    @Wiidii100 : You messed up bad. You should give your friend/customer your working console.
    If you don't have any nand backups and not even a emunand partition from that console then the console is beyond repair.

    Does it start the download before failing? Someone was having trouble downloading an update in another thread and was able to complete it by restarting the download over and over again. Each time it downloaded a small portion of the update but eventually it completed.

    He said it took forever though. It might be worth a shot.

    If it somehow magically works when I'm using a different wifi access point, I'll let you guys know, but it might be considered "bumping," as it'll be a month later. Also this might be off topic, but I haven't told my friend about this yet, and they haven't seen the 3ds (a present). So it isn't theirs, at least yet. And it "starts" (and ends within 3 seconds)
    EDIT: without any progress made each time

    I had @hundshamer fix a n3ds that I bricked during an a9lh install. He could probably extract the emunand from the sd card and inject it for you.

    I'm not in the us right now, but I might give that a shot once I get back.

    I mailed mine to him from Japan. The round trip took about two weeks.

    I'm not sure if I can mail from where I am right now, so I'll just wait to mail from home.
