    For whatever reason, whenever I power on my 3DS, despite the SD Card being taken out, it just stays on a black screen. The Luma3DS screen does pop up, however, it's just gonna stay on a black screen after that. I think I tried to boot into Luma3DS as well, & it failed. Anyone have a solution? I have an o3DSXL on 11.2 with A9LH & Luma3DS.

    is it booting in to luma config with sd card inserted?

    if you are looking to boot into luma config without sd and its not working, follow this.

    Don't assume this post is being condescending by questioning your technical ability. But a few days ago we had someone asking why their 3DS didn't boot and the screen shot of their folder tree they posted had the luma payloads folder named 'playloads' so forgive me for asking, But:

    Did you check if all the relevant files and folders are named correctly and in the right place etc?

    I'll try & see if that's the case.

    Yeah. It is.

    Everything is named correctly. I ended up getting a dump file. Is there anything that I need to do with it? Did the ErrDisp & got svcBreak. Put loader.cxi in the sysmodules folder, & tried to enable the firm, as well as taking off the sysNAND options. Still won't boot.

    I got past Part 3 fine, but I can't seem to get to Part 4, because sysNAND doesn't boot for me at all. I don't know if it's a normal issue, but it constantly keeps doing that no matter what I do. Am I supposed to press a button, or?

    That's what I was saying. I can boot into Luma3DS, but when I save & try to get sysNAND to boot after, it doesn't boot.

    well, heres the deal ..to access FBI you need micro sd as its installed on micro sd ...

    without microsd you cannot access FBI ...

    allowing to boot without sd is just a measure to help you access your device in case your sd card goes bad ..

    Boot into Decrypt9 or HourGlass by holding start when booting, go to "SysNAND Backup/Restore" then select NANDmin.bin. Let it work through the process and it should boot up as normal afterwards

    Yeah. I'm doing that right now. I figured since I have a NAND Backup, that I probably should've done that from the get-go. But, the end user in me wanted a simple process & got a complex one instead.

    Yeah, I mean luckily you made a backup, most people who want a quick process just don't do it then want someone else to help fix it. Let me know what happens after you've done it
