    I will be absolutely elated when one day, someone releases a way to restore a NAND to a bricked 3DS via software without actually doing a hardmod that involves opening up the 3DS internals. Akin to something like Bootmii for the Wii.

    Still quite a noob here, but why did that cause a brick? ._.

    I clicked the button that says Dump NAND.

    Thanks!
    Yes
    Your NAND is specific to your 3DS, so if you put someone elses or a NAND that says "3ds_bricker_app" then you'll brick.

    The 3ds needs more than a 16 byte nand to work. :mellow:

    specifically, firm0 and firm1 are missing so the bootrom returns that error screen.

    That worked great! I have that same blue screen and error.

    What's the next step? I need my free games now, please. Also, where the hell is smea with my ironhax?

    If I don't get some service soon I'm getting a refund
