    Okay, so when I finally turned on my 3ds, I tried to update luma. Failed to update. Assumed it had something to do with my whole system and A9LH being out of date, so I updated the system. System is updated, but now crashes on boot.
    Okay, so I assume I just need the new arm9loaderhax.bin? It's been so long, I don't even know where to find it.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    A9LH is dead. Use A9LH to B9S - 3DS Guide to update your CFW installation. This is REQUIRED, as all future Luma updates and all payloads will be in the FIRM format.

    Don't assume that. What I said means that you need to switch from A9LH to boot9strap (B9S). Can you at least boot any payloads?

    Trying not to assume it. Just worrying getting to me. By payloads, do you mean decrypt9 and hourglass9 and such by holding down buttons? I can try.

    ... Looks like Decrypt9 works.

    ... Emunand9 works.

    .. Don't remember the button presses for others. It's been over a year.

    Yes. Do what I said above and you should be fine.

    check your payloads folder on the sd under luma, it should have the button you hold for each payload in there file name

    Aaaaand done! Old beaten up 3ds works again as before. :) Now is Emunand on boot wanted or is it necessary? In luma config. It seems necessary, don't know why it's not in the tutorial.

    It isn't necessary. If you want to boot into EmuNAND on boot instead of SysNAND, enable it.
