    Hello everyone!
    I have unfortunately received the black screen of death, during my attempt at upgrading from a9lh to b9s I have somehow hard bricked my 3ds.

    The 3ds can be turned on but only dislpays black screens. I cannot boot into recovery mode either.

    So, I have to wait for the upcoming ntrboothax to be released or changing the motherboard of the system.

    Does changing the motherboard unbrick the 3ds?

    Yes, swapping the MoBo will fix your console.
