Hey Everyone.

First of all, I recently bought a new 3ds xl from eBay, It wouldn't boot just blue light for a quick second. This was because it was missing a boot.firm file. I got it to boot to the luma configuration using 7.04.boot.firm, so then I started to proceed to update to the current version using A9LH to B9S guide.

Once I got to section III configuration of Luma Show NAND or user string in System Settings. I now boot up seeing the Unable to mount CTRNAnD or load CTRNAND message.

So I followed the CTRTransfer guide, and still no luck, same message.

I can currently boot up to Good mode so I pulled up some information and it looks like I might be missing the original firmware but no sure how to fix this, please advise.

Is the drive [1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND present in GodMode9?
Assuming you are now on B9S and using latest GodMode9:

In general you can try fixing severe softbricks with CTRTransfer Type D9 Read the instructions carefully.

Good luck!

Edit:

System assembly date and Original Firmware information are missing.
And I would rather not share the serial number online.
[2:] SYSNAND TWLN/sys/log/product.log missing?
