    Hey. :) My n3ds takes like 3-5 seconds to boot. Is that normal?

    I think that it's completely normal, it never boots instantly :)

    Same here. Even my 2DS (the only setup I have with only a 4GB SD card where others have either 32 or 64) needs 7 seconds to boot.

    The faster the better right? Lol, as long as it still works like it should, you'll be good.

    Whoa... even without my SD Card in, my console takes around 7 seconds to boot.

    The stuff I'd do for a three second boot time, though this can't be possible.

    The perceived time from people to people is different, maybe you count slowly, if you want to have an objective measure you should use a chronometer, just for the record my emunand boots on 7.5 approximately on my o3ds

    the more games u installed the longer it will take for 3ds to process the home screen hence longer boot.
    u'll know this by comparing a fresh installed luma a9lh vs luma a9lh with multiple games installed
    3-5 secs is completely normal

    Stock systems typically take 5-7 seconds to boot without any games or SD inserted. 3 is unheard of.

    When it comes to A9LH systems, the larger the SD card the slower the boot.

    I would love a 5 second boot time. I think sysnand for me is around 13 seconds, and emunand is around 15 seconds.
