    It shows faces and strange things. It updates successfully but it remains the same.

    I have this, too. I'll be switching to Star Updater.

    Here's a screenshot for those who don't know what OP is talking about.

    Did you download using Hombr3w? Maybe someone is trolling?

    Luma Updater looks prettier and IS prettier. Star nailed down tracking which commit you have and the menu is easier to maneuver

    Luma Updater is really good- just needs the bugs fixed

    Well i mean it downloaded the update like it should and i know is 6.0.1 so i guess if i check and 6.0.2 or higher is releasaed i know i need to update, so It still works aside from the current installed version bug name thing :P

    Mine has done this as well but it was ALWAYS because I was using a different arms payload than luma. Most recently I was using bootanim9. The updater only updates the arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the SD so if you're using a boot manager or something else this is why you get the error.

    Nope. It's a bug.

    Well it still happens in those instances too so it's good to be aware if people forget.

    Man I've seen the version check fail but this is just amazing.
    It should not compromise the functionality (it's just dumping bytes on the screen because the search algorithm is faulty), although I fear the cursor on the options might be broken because of the additional line it prints (that menu works thanks to magic).

    I'm having issues both with time (work is being quite demanding of me lately) and personal (my router is acting up and none of the new ones I've found has a feature I need, if I can't connect my 3DS to wifi I can't test properly) so I can't work on it right now.

    Use Star Updater if it causes issues, it's far more supported by its contributors and kept up to date than I will ever be able to do with mine.

    EDIT: Wait how does it NOT know which version it is (the <unknown> bit at the top), is that the latest CIA from Github?

    I investigated the issue, and it seems like you use "configuration" as the search string. Since 6.0 introduced a pin system that has an error message with "Error saving configuration," this is now the first instance of configuration in the binary and breaks your search string.

    For me weirdly enough; I do not have bad dump or whatever my Luma3DS updater just crashes on checking updates.

    If you want to know what version of luma you are using, then boot the luma configuration. Hold select when turning on the console.
