    So I decided to update my A9LH from a version of shadownand to this version here: https://github.com/AuroraWright/arm9loaderhax/releases

    And I updated my luma3ds to 6.6 as well

    All was fine and dandy until it attempted to boot sysnand. Now sysnand does not boot, however I can boot payloads. Any help?

    Restore a nand backup. It couldn't be from updating a9lh.

    Did you patch anything like the homemenu or a custom font or something?

    Strange. You didn't brick since you can still boot payloads but restore a nand backup.

    Did you look if you need to apply your settings again? Some luma updates deliberatly delete the config. Press Select and check that first...

    Okay, so using an older arm9loaderhax.bin boots the homemenu, but for some reason the new one fails to boot the homemenu.

    I'm slightly baffled being honest, what in the heck is going on?

    You sure you haven't done any region free patches or anything like that?

    I may have, I'm going to install a clean homemenu CIA. (After a NAND backup!) You wouldn't happen to know the titleid?

    Try a night build to see if it's a 6.6 problem.

      2. Set your options when it boots
    3. Test booting Hourglass9
      1. On Luma3DS, hold Start on boot
    4. Try deleting home menu’s extdata
