    Hello guys.
    Today a friend wrote me and told me that he has a brick.
    He has a New 3DS XL Europe Firmware 10.3, Ironhax and Menuhax are installed. His 3DS freezed without a reason (he didn't used arm11 exploits, he played mario kart 7 normally), and now when he turns the 3ds on, the home menu appears and 2 seconds later he gets the error screen of doom. When he Boots into Menuhax, the 3ds crashes at different points in the exploit and the magical an error occrued screen appears again. It also crashes without a SD. When he tries to boot into recovery mode, he only gets 2 grey screens.
    Is this very weard brick recoverable without a hardmod? Do you have suggestions? Thanks for your help guys

    It might be a faulty hardware. Not sure which one though.

    I don't think its's faulty hardware. If this 3ds is broken, it wouldn't boot into the home menu. I think there's a cia missing, but i'm not sure.

    It happened to my other console, It boots into home menu then after a couple of seconds Nintendo Error will occur. Recovery mode works though, turns out it's the wifi chip. I replaced it and its working now.

    I can agree! Had this problem 2 or 3 days ago! Was a thread on here as well... It was the WiFi Modul! Strange.... The third one then I hear of....

    Thanks to all of you from my friend. He want to make sure that it is the wifi antenna. Wifi is activated. Is there a way to disable it without the menu? I only know how to enable it; when you remove the battery for a few seconds, wifi will turn on.

    Some physical hardware might be failing. No homebrew will ever cause behavior like this.

    It's probably the WiFi chip. If he's on 3DS or 3DS XL, there's a switch on the side he can press.

    But this is a thing where the console has to be opened up.
