Hi!
Loooooong time lurker. Learned so much! Now, I've got a weird issue.
Old 3DSXL. NTRboothax from flashcard. Luma 8.1, GM9. 200 titles installed from NUS or my GM9 cart dumps to CIA and installed with FBI. CFW installed about 1 month ago. Everything was perfect. Played a game this morning. Closed the lid (not off, just sleep mode) and went to work to show a co worker/co computer nerd how cool a hacked 3DS is. I told him "Open the lid"...He said "um...its not working"
Black screen.
Hold power 15 sceonds. Turns off.
Turn on.
Custom splash, fine.
Black screen.
Can boot to GM9.
Can boot to Luma.
Removed Flash Cart. No Help. Removed SD, no help.
Did the L+R+A+D and power.
Nothing. Dit it again, and some red and white text flashed too quickly to read. Brief flash of home menu.
Black screen.
L+R+A+D and power and it's fine. Working perfect.
Just looking for a reason why??? Last thing I did (yesterday) was boot GM9 to see what version i had. Told me RTC time was wrong. Fixed it. Installed 5 CIA titles from Villian or Wii U USB Helper, don't recall. All worked fine. I do have Anemone installed to randomize themes, but this has been since day one without issue.
Any ideas?
And thanks!

Yeah, It just happens sometimes.
I went through the same thing on my O3dsxl
all I needed was a Nand restore.

It's always good to make frequent backups
If i restore the original nand from when i first installed cfw will i lose anything?

I guess sometimes that happens. Make sure you are on the latest build of Luma and B9S.
Luma is 8.1. How do i check b9s?

You'll lose anything that wasn't installed at that point.
Games and their saves can be gotten back by reinstaling their tickets assuming you haven't formatted the console since you made that backup. If they were from FreeShop or similar then tikShop can reinstall them for you. If they were from CIAs you'll need to somehow dump the tickets from the CIAs and install only those as reinstalling the CIAs will wipe the saves.
You should be on B9S 1.2 or 1.3 for Luma 8.1. There isn't really an easy way to check I think. Latest Luma is 8.1.1. Might be worth going through https://3ds.guide/updating-b9s to make sure you're on the latest B9S. Though I don't think that's the problem.

Yes. As soon as gm9 was installed i backed up the nand. Id honestly rather not restore anything as ot was working perfectly. Perhaps the latest games or themes or software ive installed could be the culprit?
If it's before you put on your Cfw it will.
You have one after right you installed it right?

    There are ways to sort it but they are unpleasant and expensive. Far easier to do a vinyl wrap/cover in electrical tape.
