    Self explanatory. I know there was some option to copy luma to the system or something like that, so i could boot it without an sd card. Problem is that i didn't do that... option. I also lost my sd card, and didn't backup the files that were on there. In other words, I can't boot up my 3ds (blue light appears, then fades away after sometime and after making a weird sound), and also can't access GodMode9 (blue light appears, immediately after that, it just fades away). Is there something I can do?

    You must find a sd card. Without it, you cannot proceed right now.

    So... I do have an SD card. I can use the guide. So, will I lose all my data? I don't want to beat Superstar Saga again.

    You can use JK's save manager to mod your superstar saga save.

    If you lost your SD card, and the game was saved to your SD card and you didn’t make a backup at some point, then unfortunately the save is lost for good.

    first get an sd card and download the latest luma put it on the sd and attempt to boot the 3ds if it boots use the link i provided and do all steps . . . if it wont boot download an older version of luma and delete then replace luma and try again . . . repeat as needed regardless when it boots use the link i gave you and do all steps . . . your save is gone :glare:(unless you have the cartage version) there is a thread of complete/100% 3ds saves on gbatemp ... although i dont know if it has the game in question

    Sorry, I know how much it sucks to lose your save data (happens to me more times than I care to admit to) but on the bright side at least you can still save your 3DS! ^_^
