    I have my nintendo 3ds xl. After I bought it from my friend (with 2.1.0 for CFW), I tried to play DS game with 3ds since I don't have 3ds game card yet.
    However, it can recognize the game card, but can't play it! After I click the icon to play, it just shows black screen to me.
    This is my guess, but the same thing will happen when I put 3ds game card in it.

    My 3ds' version is 11.6 K, and I have B9S 1.3 as CFW. Please help me.

    Make sure Luma is fully updated. I found some versions have issues with DS games.

    I can't update luma since my sister took 3ds for Mario, but thanks for the tip anyway.
    Then what if I can't play 3DS game?
    I'm afraid that I can't play 3ds game, since I already have DS...

    When you have the ds back check what version Luma3DS it's on whilst holding select upon boot, you may need to install a fresh TWL firm
