    So, I was following Pialects guide.
    And at part 3, step 27 (https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-3-(RedNAND))it tells you to update your RedNAND.

    However, after updating: When I start Luma3DS from my homebrew launcher it goes to the little screen that says "Starting Home menu...". And then it goes to a black screen.

    Did I do anything wrong? Is the latest version maybe not supported yet or something?

    What version of luma are you using ? Don't use a " dev " version

    If doesnt work , try with another version of luma

    Missing firmware.bin from the luma folder in the root of your SD card

    Use the latest version and place firmware.bin in the luma folder

    firmware.bin from NTR is here https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/wiki/Installation-and-Upgrade

    Even though luma says it doesn't need firmware.bin anymore, I couldn't get it to boot after updating rednand, until I placed the firmware.bin in the luma folder

    Or i'm wrong seeing as you see part of the home menu.

    Tried restoring the backup of my SysNAND to RedNAND and updating that again. Didn't work. (I'm on 9.0 btw)

    Also did not do the trick.

    Still nothing :( Weird thing is:
    When I press the powerbutton, it goes to the sleeping screen.
    And I can press the Home button when that happens. Then I get the "Home Menu" splash screen, but it doesn't get past that.

    I second this. Try recreating redNAND and doing it again. Seems to be some kind of softbrick happening on your redNAND, which may be fixed if you remake the redNAND.

    Reformat sysnand. The nands are still linked and on different firmware versions. This happened to me before.

    Doesn't the guide say to format sysNAND? Because if so that means OP is not fully reading the guide, and if that is true they should try to actually read everything else they risk brick. I haven't read the guide lately to see what has changed, but I do know when I did it I never had this issue because the guide tells you to format sysNAND using TinyFormat

    Cheers man, all fresh SysNAND -> EmuNAND worked like a charm.

    What I tried before was: recreate it by injecting my old sysnand backup to RedNAND. That gave me the same result.

    I did read it, and I did format, but it did not mather.

    Anyway, I got it working and I can continue the rest of the guide.

    Thanks for the help!
