    So I'm lost at how to fix this problem. I updated from new 3ds from a9lh to boot9strap following the 3ds.guide. Everything worked out fine so I decided to update my luma with the newly installed boot9strap. Since I still had the old luma updater for a9lh it gave me an error when trying to update so I went to install the new lumaupdater that the website provided once I updated luma with the new cia it completed, but then my 3ds shut off and now it doesn't wanna turn back on even without the sd card it just flashes blue for a split second then shuts off.

    Update: Ended up reverting back to the old boot.firm, but still wondering why the 3ds doesn't boot without an sd card it should if boot.firm is in CTRNAND right?

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    For the console to boot up without the SD card you need "boot.firm" on the CTRNAND.

    That's what I thought and I do have it in there, but for some reason it still doesn't boot without the SD card. I'm about to replace it with the latest version I have to see if anything changes.

    Update: Seem like there was just a bad copy in CTRNAND replaced the file and everything seems to work fine now. Really appreciate the help thanks a lot :]

    Yup. Followed the guide exactly how it's told.
