    You're missing "boot.firm", or if you have it, it's not a valid one.

    Try downloading Luma3DS via github, overwriting the boot.firm with the one in the .zip files, and powering it on again.

    :7.1 works,maybe because 8.0 doesn't have a boot.firm.sha in its folder or maybe something else is wrong with the release?

    No, it's because you haven't updated boot9strap to 1.2.

    Sent that early, I was gonna add:

    "At least, it doesn't seem that way, as I don't know why else it wouldn't work. My installation works perfectly fine."

    I'm new to the whole modded thing. How do I get the 7.1 reinstalled or the boot.firm reinstalled correctly? Is there a specific program that I need to use? I have a boot.firm on my sd card root.

    Scroll down to the v7.1 .zip and download it, delete your current "boot.firm" file, and place the one from the .zip file onto the root of your SD card.

    Thanks so much. Man I just had a mini heart attack. Back up and going. How did you get the new version to work?

    You mean the latest release (v8.0)?

    If you wanna use 8.0, follow this:
