    I'm currently using a 2ds and I have installed B9S along with freeShop(just in case that makes a difference) Now my ds will not turn on the power light goes on and then goes off. This happened when I updated luma using the luma updater. I pressed start to reboot, but then it wouldn't turn back on.

    Did you update to B9S 1.2 recently?

    No. Even without the sd card, it will not turn on.

    Whenever the blue power LED comes on for a second, and shuts back down, it's because you're missing a valid "boot.firm". Due to a recent update, there can be many causes for this, and different fixes, and I don't have enough info to tell you specifically what to do.

    Try updating your boot.firm file using the latest release (v8.0) from here:

    https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases

    If that doesn't help, scroll down to the next version (v7.1) and try that one.

    Put everything back on it, and then do what I said above.

    If you can't transfer your backup files to your SD card, then you might have a problem with your SD card.

    Well, if you didn't install B9S 1.2 - downgrade Luma to 7.1 - because Luma 8.0 only works with B9S 1.2
