    Hello there, my A9LH new 3DS at firmware 11.3 downloaded the 11.4 update while on sleep mode and it prompted me to update, and since I didn't want to update right now I didn't install it.

    Right after I discarded installing the update my new 3DS congratulated (is that a word?) me with the "An error has occurred" screen.

    I rebooted my New 3DS and it still appeared the same screen, so I took off my Micro SD card to see if it still appeared, and it did, so I updated to 11.4 through recovery mode, rebooted and... the same error screen again ._.

    But now, Recovery mode does not work (and booting without SDCard doesn't help either)

    A9LH payloads still work, and I'm on latest Luma nightly, I have a NAND backup (even though it's the very first backup you do on the guide, but meh, it's something) If I restore that backup would I have to reinstall A9LH?

    (BTW, I turned on ERRDisp on Luma Settings so you can see the errors for yourself, you cand find them on the attachments)

    (Later edit: It booted fine, but gave the same error just seconds after the home menu appeared)

    I don't have a 11.3 backup, as I say in the OP I only have the backup that you make during the holy guide (And I have to free up some space on my SD card first)
    I'll restore the backup I have when I've got the time and I'll update the post
    But... brick by deciding not to install 11.4, that's weird

    Restoring the band backup with the keep a9lh option should do the trick

    Restore the backup using Hourglass9 and you won't have to reinstall A9LH. Don't reinstall your games, or the save files will be lost. You can safely install the tickets only (you can use TikShop for this) and you should be able to access the games again and your saves should still be there, but if you reinstall the games with FreeShop or reinstall the CIA, the saves are lost.

    Restored my nand backup with hourglass9 keeping A9LH...
    Black screen on boot with SD card on and instant power off without SD Card
    Do I have to put the arm9loaderhax.bin of the latest luma stable on my SD or what?

    You should try downloading the latest stable or nightly

    What firmware was the backup? Chances are your firmware is now too low to run the games. If you have Zelda Ocarina of Time or Mario 3D Land this won't be the case because they only need like 1.0 or 2.0 to run. But if not, try updating.

    I'm updating rn.
    The backup is from 9.2, and the only game that prompted me to update was majora's mask 3D

    Ok, also try visiting the eShop page of one of the games that doesn't work. Go out of the eShop and try the game again. Visiting the page will give you the seed.
