FUCK! I broke my cmd connection and now I get a bootrom error... Anyway I can fix this? URGENT
It still boots so not bricked but is there a CMD/Dat0 alternative I am using a Old 3DS xl
I unfortunately just recently broke mine(the little gold thing fell off trying to desolder and replace)
So you trashed 2 points? I know of a dat0 alt, that may or may not work, but if you trashed the original, there is no way you will be able to solder to the alt... Also, I don't think there is an alt for CMD.
Sorry for being obnoxious...
But the device still boots. Does the device itself not use those points for anything? I used https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-noob-friendly-nand-dumping-2ds-3ds-3ds-xl-n3ds-n3ds-xl.414498/ as my guide and the little gold thingies fell off... I just assume that if the device can boot, then the pins themselves are not trashed just what I can solder to so my logic says that if the pins work, then should the alts. Please clear this up...
The alts would be located under the NAND chip.
so that would mean completely removing the MotherBoard? also if you have at hand can you send pics?
Lol, no, it would require you to remove the actual NAND. Which at that point is completely useless.
What you soldered to, would be the ALT points, think about it that way.
Ok thank you for clearing all of that up.
WAIT!!! So my 3ds booted fine for some time and it just crashed with a boot error!!! FUCK! Can anyone help me
No, it's trashed. Not much you can do.
UPDATE! I need to change the name of the post but may I ask, My 3DS boots fine one second, and the next it has a booterror. the second I take it apart and test it, it works (I used the battery to test it).
You lifted the cmd pad, so its shorting out. Thus the bsod / no bsod error.
If I were to just place a piece of electrical tape, would that solve the issue?
I put some hot glue overtop and it solved my problem. I now have a 10/10 success rate*
I only tried 10 times
For now, as the console heats up it will error again.
I have stress tested the console. There is no excess heat and it hasnt errored once
Lol why are so many people lifting their pads while de-soldering.... , use a solder sucker xD, also another method to fix can be trace it and replace the copper pad which is a pain to do but may work , also do a stress test on the console for about 5 hours and see if anything happens
^here i fixed it for you
Also OP, well done solving it. If it fails again, try like TariqSoftDev said
..and..be more carefull in the futur when using a soldering iron
