    Hey everyone I'm facing a problem with my 3DS, I've just turned it on and it stays on a black screen. At first I thought it was bricked however when I take the SD card out it boots up how it normally should I've never had this problem before and my 3DS has been modded for 6 months now does anyone know a fix?

    Well I have LumaCFW, Hourglass9, Arm9loaderhax and FBI basically all the stuff you should have once you've finished with the https://3ds.guide/ I don't really mess around with the emulators or anything else

    Yes I can, I've been told that the reason for this is because my Luma or arm9loaderhax folder in my SD card is corrupted but I don't see how that would stop my 3DS from booting up

    Just make a nand backup, factory reset, make sure the a9lh.bin is on your nand,(new step in 3ds.guide if you haven't installed or updated recently) factory reset, and restore nand backup

    a9lh.bin is probably corrupt then, it happens all the time. and it is the primary payload, so that failing would in fact stop it from booting. the reason it boots without it is because for some reason a9lh checks the sd before the nand for it (oddly enough)
    make sure its at the root
