    Hello

    I think I did a rather stupid mistake so I was on Luma 6.6 and wanted to do this tutorial : https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s.html


    I did everything it said but when I start my 3ds it only boots in the sysnand wether I hold start or so on .

    SO my Theory is I deleted some files from my sd card so I dont get in anything other then the sysnand.

    Now I need your help guys what did I do wrong?


    I have all the files like in the tutorial I only can boot in Sysnand I took the armloader9 from Luma 7.4 still didn`t help.

    I know I am sure I did a stupid mistake so any help would be appreciated

    From an unexperienced view, what happens if you just follow the tutorial again? (No mistakes)

    What specifically are you trying to boot other than sysNAND? An emuNAND? A payload?

    Do you have payloads in the .firm format in the payloads folder inside the luma folder?

    Download Luma3DS version 8.0 and put the boot.firm onto the root of your SD card. If you hold start, then it should automatically boot GodMode9 since there's only one compatible payload.

    .bin files no longer work.

    As a matter of troubleshooting, delete, download, and replace the Luma3DS boot.firm and the GodMode9.firm.

    Have you installed B9S successfully? As a matter of troubleshooting, delete the arm9loaderhax.bin from the root of your SD card.

    Here are some possibilities. They all seem unlikely, so I don't know how I can help.
    • You never installed B9S, and you're still loading the outdated Luma3DS arm9loaderhax.bin from the CTRNAND.
    • Your start button doesn't work.
    • You have neither A9LH nor B9S installed, so you're not loading Luma3DS.

    As a test:
    1. Delete boot.firm from the root of your SD card.
    2. Copy GodMode9.firm to the root of your SD card.
    3. Rename GodMode9.firm to "boot.firm"
    4. Turn on your 3DS and tell me what boots.

    You don't appear to have B9S installed. To prove it, copy GodMode9.bin (not .firm) to the root of your SD card. Rename it to "arm9loaderhax.bin"

    When you boot your 3DS, what happens?

    If you have FBI installed, open it and tell me what files are on the root of your CTRNAND.
