    I recently (like a couple days ago) installed A9HL onto my N3ds and am currently on 11.0. The problem that I had was that when I tried playing Gba games i installed using FBI they would just go to a black screen. I also found the same problem to happen when I try using my R4I RTS card. I'm not sure what the problem is as i also have a O3ds with a9hl that boots both GBA and the flashcart perfectly. Any help would be appreciated.

    Help him instead of being an ass hat.

    Are you using luma and or a boot manager? If so you need to use the path changer.

    Use the pathchanger for luma and use the directory the luma.bin is at on the sd card.

    Does it work if Bootanim9 is disabled? And have you turned off developer mode in Luma settings?

    If you are using a bootanim9 then you will need to use the path changer from luma. My arm9loaderhax.bin is named Luma3ds.bin and its in a folder called a9lh so i put \a9lh\Luma3DS.bin in the pathchanger and gba and dsi games work fine. So just do what I did but use where it is located on your sd card and ofc use the name you have for it.

    Drag the lumas bin file onto the pathchanger.

    Use the newer version of BootAnim9

    it automaticly patches the luma payload

    I'm having the same problem... even before A9LH installation, GBA games would not work with any CFW i tried.
    Then i tried installing modified TWL/AGB .cia's, did not work then.

    After all of that i did A9LH, and tried again with Luma3DS, still no dice.
    Went on troubleshooting, and installed the normal TWL/AGB .cia's the guide told me to install, and still does not work.
    I just want to play some Metroid Fusion but i cant seem to get anything to work. If i have to use retroarch then so be it, i would like it to look more integrated though if you know what i mean. Does anyone know anything i could try to get it to work?

    if it makes any difference, im using BootCtr9 pointing to Luma/GW/Hourglass9/Uncart/Decrypt9/EmuNAND9 but i doubt thats the problem here.

    If using bootCTR9 you need to use pathchanger AFAIK.

    You are not a cat. That's your problem.

    Anyways, you have snip because you replied to a removed comment, and a mod removed it.

    Back on topic. BootAnim9 latest release should do its own path changing patching on Luma3DS. BootCTR9 latest dev release or compiled from the latest commit should have path changing fix as well for Luma3DS.

    BootAnim9 latest release
    Link: https://github.com/Wolfvak/BootAnim9/releases

    Latest BootCTR9 Dev build
    Link: https://gbatemp.net/threads/arm9loader-technical-details-and-discussion.408537/page-200#post-6373015

    Both have path-fixing. With the latest BootCTR9 dev build, the example is included in the boot_config.ini

    I encountered another problem sorry but I tried using the pathchanger and i think i messed up because know I can't even boot to home menu. i tried replacing the bootloaderhax.bin to the one originaly found on the lumadev folder but it still wont boot.
