    I installed A9LH and luma3ds about a week ago and yesterday, my 3DS wouldn't boot into luma3ds. I still could go into the configuration. Then I realized my 3DS would only boot into luma3ds if I held down L and R while booting. Someone please help me turn on my 3DS without the L and R keys.

    UPDATE: I forgot to mention, yesterday, I installed a luma3ds hourly instead of a normal version.

    EDIT: I fixed it by going into the config, enabling a setting which is not dangerous (the GBA boot screen option) and it booted. Then all I had to do was install the latest version of luma3ds. (not the hourly)

    lost in ARM9
    Hold "start" to access your Luma config, then enable "autoboot to sysNAND, use sysNAND FIRM if booting with R, and Show NAND or user string in System Settings.

    AS they said.
    Also you can pull the sd card and go to the luma folder and delete the config file. i think its config.bin

    Also dont load nightly its not worth it, Stay to the stable builds.

    I did everything you guys said except deleting the config file. It still didn't work. For some reason, it was booting earlier but now it won't boot again.
