    sorry if this is in the wrong place. new to this (cfw and gbatemp)

    I'm currently trying to update A9LH to B9S using this guide. I've followed the directions word for word, but when it's time to reinsert the SD card and boot luma chainloader, pressing start+power (section II, step 1), my N3DS just boots normally.
    I've retried it multiple times, my firmware is 11.4, my luma is on 7.0.4. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right, but pictures added, just in case. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for any help.

    First off, congrats on following the right guide.
    So, try Select instead of Start.

    Your payloads should be in sd:/luma/payloads, not sd:/cias/luma/payloads.

    ^^this for sure. also, the chainloader won't boot up if u only have one .firm in there. it will boot whatever the .firm is which in this case is godmode. this is mentioned in the guide.
