    Hi everyone,

    Here is my story :
    - I followed the 3ds.guide on like june 2016 and get everything to work (a9lh, Luma3DS, ...)
    - I recently updated my 2DS and it didn't want to boot into Luma3DS anymore (but the start/x/y payloads were still working)
    - I tried to update a9lh using this guide https://3ds.guide/updating-a9lh
    - Now my 2DS is not booting anymore even to the payloads :(
    - The only way I got it to boot somewhere is to replace the arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of my SD card with the arm9loaderhax.bin of the SafeA9LHInstaller and it only boots now to the SafeA9LHInstaller menu.

    Can anyone help me on this please??

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you using the latest 6.6 build of Luma?

    Just update to 6.6 and you'll be fine c:
    https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v6.6

    Though I'm sure you already updated now and tried, not saying "don't work" so assuming you fixed.
    Not to be rude, but I already answered a day ago was there any need for this post?
    Also the caps lock is highly unnecessary.

    Thank you it works again!! I just forgot that updating Luma consisted of just replacing arm9loaderhax.bin.

    Thanks again!! :D
