    hello i am installing arm9loaderhax on my old 3ds,all went well until the final steps, its states to remove sd card when inject (hs.app)which i did, and it will reboot and show me "CTRNAND based luma installation" but i keep getting a black screen,then when i put sd card back in it goes straight to 3ds menu, steps below Please help Thanks

    1. Select “DSP Dump”
    2. Press (Start) when prompted to exit
    3. Reboot while holding Start to launch Hourglass9
    4. Go to “SysNAND Backup/Restore”, then select “Health&Safety Inject”
    5. Select hs.app (the original one that doesn’t contain FBI), then press (A) and confirm to inject
    6. Press (Select) on the main menu to eject your SD card
    7. Press (Start) to reboot with the SD card removed
      • Booting the device at least once with the SD card removed will allow you to configure the CTRNAND based luma installation
    8. Use the (A) button and the D-Pad to turn on the following:
      • “Show NAND or user string in System Settings”

    Did you do the steps which you copy the arm9loaderhax.bin into CTR_NAND in FBI (Section VI Step 7-12)? If you don't need your 3ds to be bootable without an sd card (aka. you don't need SD-less luma), you can skip step 7-12 and 19-23.(which is 6-end in your post)

    Did you update your 3ds to latest firmware?

    Did you copy arm9loaderhax.bin into CTR_NAND? this step is a must if you wanna do sdless

    otherwise, you can skip this...

    There is definitely something wrong when you were copying armloaderhax.bin into CTR_NAND or otherwise you will be able to boot to luma config menu. Try boot while holding on Select without an SD card, if you still don't get the luma menu do Section VI Step 7-12 again.

    If you don't care about booting your 3ds without an SD card or an SD card without armloaderhax.bin in it. You are fine. Proceed to Section VII.
