    No, ctrnand images don't work that way IIRC, to unbrick, you need NAND images...
    NAND images flashed by hardmod must be console specific

    If its the gateway brick it can be Unbricked. You will need a raspberry pi

    Get a raspberry pi & use the tutorial above.

    Here is a link to buy one: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016..._1&btsid=b606fcff-3c66-4c03-9cd6-28e7edd34ad5

    & buy this to: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/For-..._1&btsid=b92409e6-a442-4736-80df-9195a02d4230 so you can connect your raspberry pi to a lcd or led screen.

    afaik the unbrick code will only work on the raspberry pi A or B not the B+/2/3, and he could simply use the raspberry pi with any HDMI tv/monitor without buying anything else

    but we also dont know how he bricked yet, he may have been bricked by trying to update sysnand in GW mode......now if that was the case seeing as he is hardmodded if we knew exactly what FW he was on, and what FW he was updating i assume he could do a plaintext attack to manually update FIRM to match that of the FW he was updating too

    how do we know he was updating to 11.0, he said he bricked it a long time ago.......which would imply it would have been a lower FW

    @Keylogger who did your hardmod, if it was me i may have a nand backup for you

    By his long time it means a week I guess because he posted a thread about being bricked a week ago.

    well that is one short ass "long time ago" if thats the case, but that would also make the likelyhood of it being a blue screen of death brick very slim as nobody in their right mind would go grab FW 2.0b2 from like 2/3 years ago i would hope nowhere would even be hosting that FW tbh

    You'd be surprised by the amount of stupid things people do with their 3ds and then come for help here.
