    I am going to ask the obvious just to make sure, did you follow the guide from step one until the end? , https://3ds.guide/homebrew-launcher-(soundhax)
    If so, double check arm9loaderhax.bin from the Luma3DS RAR/ZIP file is on the root of your SD card. Also, try holding select and describe what you see on the screen.

    You know that if the blue light stays on it has nothing to do with arm9loaderhax.bin file? It would switch off if the file was corrupt or not there, but he's saying the light stays on permanently.

    @boy_iran_64 This seems like a brick. WHEN did this happen? What EXACTLY were you doing? Did you install A9LH? Did this happen after downgrading to 2.1 or what? I want to know what part of the guide you're in right now. What was the last thing you did before you got the black screen?!

    If you did all that correctly there is no reason it should have bricked, unless you updated from 2.1 instead of restoring a backup. Is it an O3DS or a N3DS? So I'm going to assume that when you are on 2.1 you used any other method to update besides the one the guide tells you.

    Okay what did you do specifically between the 2.1 transfer and getting a black screen?

    Did you use the SD card from another console? If that's the case it might have bricked because there was another console's OTP.bin in the a9lh folder.

    I have had the same exact issue with 2 separate devices, the blue light stays on "permanently", with an endless black screen. It was resolved when I replaced the arm9loaderhax.bin file.

    If you have a NAND back up, restore it and try installing it again.

    How is he gonna restore it if it's bricked? Not everyone just happens to have a hardmod installed to their devices.

    If luma is installed before the 2.1 transfer luma wont be able to boot sysnand 2.1 until luma is removed try the ctr transfer of 9.2 that one should be able to boot with luma

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    2.1 ctr transfer does not support luma

    Hi i have an issue. I was using 11.2 with a9lh and i noticed there is 11.3 update. So like always i made backup of sysnand and updated to 11.3.

    Unfortunately after update to 11.3 3DS shows only black screen and nothing else. I can go to Decrypt9 and every other boot option but system won't start.
    So i restored 11.2 from backup and everything works.

    Any idea why 11.3 doesn't work ? Are any of you guys noticed similar thing ? Any tips ? my a9lh is from january 2016, version which doesn't work without SD card.

    version which doesn't work without SD card?
    Answer.
    Run FBI copy arm9loaderhax.bin. paste CTR NAND.
    I had the same problem, now everything works.

    Update Luma. Copy the arm9loaderhax.bin from 6.6 to the root of your SD card.
