    I was updating the Luma firmware and now when I try to turn it thhe blue light flashes once and nothing happens. Its an old 3ds running 11.3, boot9strap and Luma. I have googled and searched threads but none seems like my case because the ones I see online the 3ds stays on while mine doesnt. Thanks in advance

    Did you update boot9strap to 1.1? If so, use Luma nightly until a bug fix is released.

    Luma firmware? You mean the latest Luma 8.0?

    If so, download Luma 7.1 manually from the Github and copy it over to your root of the SD Card, then download the latest boot9strap 1.2 and SafeB9SInstaller.

    Once you installed B9S, your Luma won't work anymore. So you need to copy over Luma 8.0 and tada! Everything works again.

    They probably should update everything just to make sure. This is the guide to doing that.

    If you have boot9strap, then you can always update.
