    [SOLVED - SOLUTION]
    Just get the latest version of Luma3DS (6.6 as for today) and extract what is inside the hax folder and arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of the SD.

    At root (sd:/)
    > arm9loaderhax.bin
    > 3ds
    >> Luma3DS

    That will solve it (at least for me it did).


    -- Original post:

    Well, after installing A9HL successfuly and injecting FBI and installing homebrew launcher and luma updater, and everything worked all right (downgraded to 2.1.0 and then recovered), well as I said.. then I did this:

    • Powered on the 3DS.
    • Went to the injected FBI in H&S.
    • Went out.
    • Went to the options menu.
    • Went out and then the 3DS freezed.
    • I forced turned off the 3DS.
    After that, I turned on the 3DS and after a second or so, it turns off. If I try with the SD off, it happens the same thing.

    Any ideas of what it could be?

    Is arm9loaderhax.bin present on the SD card?

    Do you have a payload on your 3DS?

    Have you tried turning on while holding start? If it boots up you might be able to fix it.

    Also does it instantly turn off when you press start?

    Well, after that "freeze", the PC couldn't recognize the SD and asked me to format it. That could be de problem? If so, what can I do?

    I use arm9loaderhax.bin, but as I said, the SD looked like "corrupted" and the PC asked me to format it.


    Yes I did, and nope. Yes after
    Nope, it didn't work.

    Thank you all for everything!

    Sounds like a corrupted SD card. Try another card.

    How would I do that? I mean, what do I need to put in the USB?

    All you really need is arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your second SD card. If that works, you can add the rest of your payloads later. But you may have lost any games/saves you previously had because the previous card is corrupted.

    What USB? Get another SD card and copy the files from the current SD card to the new SD card.
    Basically get SD card 2, put SD Card 1 files on 2.

    You mean Luma's arm9loaderhax.bin, don't you?

    I can't access the first SD, as windows detects it as corrupted.

    Basically your 3DS will now look for the file "arm9loaderhax.bin" upon boot and if it isn't found it shuts off(This is what happens when you install A9LH).
    A fix to your 3DS not booting is to put that file from a CFW such as Luma3DS on the root of your SD card.

    Okay it worked! But now, it turns on and the screen is black. I mean, nothing else happens, it turns on and stays on with a black screen. So now I can boot GodMode9 and so, don't I? What else should I do to restore everything or restore the system to be able to run it.

    You were right, but now the screen is black but indeed, it turns on.

    Thank you guys.

    Black screen on boot is somewhat concerning. Try using my guide (link in my signature) to get Hourglass9 working and try booting to that.

    Well, the only file there is in the SD is the arm9loaderhax.bin, may that be a problem? I don't have anything else like Luma, only that file. And I will do, thank you!

    All your 3DS should need to simply boot is arm9loaderhax.bin if I understand correctly. By all means, put Luma back on there, especially because I think it might be required to boot payloads like Decrypt9 and Hourglass9. But your 3DS should be fully booting without it AFAIK.

    Thank you mate. Your guide was the solution! (Just the first part - Putting Luma3DS WAS necessary!)

    Thank you.

    So the solution was to download the most recent version of Luma?

    Well, I thought that was obvious.

    Anyway, nice to see you fixed it.

    It was obvious, but I didn't have the 3DS the day I made the post, so I didn't know exactly what happened on the SD. I couldn't fix it until today. Anyways, yes, that was the solution.
