    I got a 3DS for unlock and it was giving odd problems.

    First, safehax only booted one time after many tries, and said there was an error in something when I tried CTRNAND Transfer.

    So I decided to do a hardmod and downgrade using the old way, but I couldn't make the Hardmod work, the 3DS would shutoff before the screen turns blue.

    So I decided to use the old method of DSiWare downgrade using SUDOHAX injected.

    Everything was working untill I downgraded.

    I don't have any backup and the 3DS just turns the powerlight and nothing else happens.
    Recovery also doesn't work.

    Since the problem appeared after I did the downgrade with DSiWare, maybe I could try again to do a hardmod and use the autofirm-master to maybe, write a new FIRM and try again?

    I'm very concerned because this 3DS is not mine!

    You messed up on step 1:
    YOU DIDNT DUMP A NAND BACKUP

    And doing it now would have no effect, because its already corrupt. Basically saying corrupt OS -> dump corrupt rom -> restore corrupt rom and expecting it to work :/

    Well I was going to ask if you even got to the A9LH install portion, but I guess you got the Blackscreen after downgrading to 2.1?

    Wow, someone with the skill to do a hardmod didn't think to make a NAND backup? Well.... that's a first for me.

    @dekuleon - Sorry to say, but for right now that 3DS is done for. No way to recover it that I am aware of. MAAAAYBE if sighax is released publicly in the future, it would be possible to encrypt a new NAND for the console and get it working again, but for now there's no way.

    For everyone else, a backup is just a backup, but for you, the owner of the 3DS, it's your lifeline. Which you just ignored.
