    Doesn't work on 11.0 as far as I can tell.

    ^I think it's not compatible with 11.0, as configchan said.
    Well, if you aren't on 11 let us know your setup (fw, model ecc.)

    I don't think it will become compatible. What are you trying to download with it?

    At this point it doesn't really have any use. What app are you trying to get and why?

    I asked it because:
    1) Worst case scenario I wondered if it could at least make the console usable.
    2) I also wanted to check that there may not be another issue at play with the console itself.

    not every homebrew have a 100% boot ratio, you should try again.

    Isn't this that app that was in the starter pack back in December?
    Wasn't it patched because of IronFall?

    Not here
    NATIVE_FIRM of 10.4 introduced ASLR for eShop, because that is like whit the ASLR games in NATIVE_FIRM of 11.0 when you try to use with them the hax it normally doesn"t work and you have to try a lot of times and there"s the possibility that one of that times it can boot, so isn"t normally usable with NATIVE_FIRM 10.4 or higher, I suppose it need to be patched like with another ASLR games in the backend itself.

    I see what you mean now, for some reason I was thinking the issue was menuhax not eshop downloader.

    My mistake.

    Even for menuhax yellow screen does not equal brick. If your emuNAND or sysNAND is bricked, it will never freeze on yellow screen, it will either have an eternal black screen or it may also boot to home menu for a few seconds and then throw an error. Yellow screen is specific for HBL exploits, and if you can run those you haven't bricked, you've just had HBL error while trying to load.

    At the time, I thought the OP was just stuck with the yellow screen on boot making it effectively a soft brick (see my SD card question).

    I just wanted to test what I thought would be a worst case fix was still available before trying other things.

    That was why I asked about recovery mode.

    Obviously I know better now.

    The only thing that could cause yellow screen on boot is menuhax, so it would only need a change in buttons held/unheld to work.
