    I was trying to get a CFW on my 3ds and when i got to Decrypt9 i accedently backed up sysNANDmin.bin insted of NANDmin.bin after making the first backup i realized where i messed up and tried to make a NANDmin.bin backup it started the backup the second time and said there was not enough storage i pressed A and it continued, i tried to finish and my 3ds is now bricked. I am left with 3 files that might be applicable for a hard mod sysNANDmin.bin sysNANDmin.bin.sha and NANDmin.bin although the last file may not have been finished. PLZ HELP I love my 3ds

    WHat? NAND.bin and sysNAND.bin are the same? Unless you backed up a emunand as NAND.bin?

    Can you still boot into Dec9/Hourglass9? Use a different sd card for the backup.. you can use sysnand.bin and carry on with the guide

    I don't think you're bricked. Get a new SD card and copy Luma's arm9loaderhax.bin into it.

    If that happened what you described you were doing a backup (which successfully finished?), then tried making another backup with a different name but your SD ran out of space. This doesn't brick a 3DS.

    On a side note.. why did Plailect remove the NAND sizes page https://3ds.guide/nand-size ? It was helpful to determine whether a NAND backup is complete.

    It doesn't look good... but... Decrypt9 is only writing to the SD card, it can't have hurt your system. Let us know the results with a new SD card.

    Did you only attempt to make backups, and not a CTRtransfer? If so, the 3DS may be complaining because you're out of space on the SD card.

    Copy/move the sysNANDmin.bin file from the SD card to your computer and try again. You might also want to try it with the SD card removed.

    Also, the NAND dump function provides several options for the filename. They don't affect the output of the file at all. I'm not sure why anyone would think that the filename has some bearing on the contents of the file, but then again, I routinely see people asking for a utility to open up ".bin files".

    I went on with the CFW installation without knowing if i had the right backup rather carelessly i might add i didnt pay close attention to where i was putting the files my DS actually worked for a day but wouldn't enter settings or update then it just started showing the message

    What happens if you try starting the system with no SD card?

    Did you successfully install A9LH? If so, make sure Luma3DS's arm9loaderhax.bin is on the SD card, put it back in the system, and hold SELECT while turning it on. Does Luma's configuration appear?

    im just gonna say that looking back i messed up alot of stuff basicly everything after ctrtransfter was done incorrectly i fougot to unzip files and just generally was really dumb about it i didnt really see the outcome this negative i thought it would just mess up and i could start over i was suuuper wrong i don't think theirs much to be done besides a hard mod

    the .sha is to verify that sysnand.bin isnt dead. if its ok, then you can hardmod

    Sounds like you need a hardmod, is your nand backup valid?
