    which version of Luma3DS did you install? (Normal or the *-dev version)
    what is your entrypoint? (Cubic Ninja, Menuhax......)

    Okay a first typ would be to DL another (older) version of Luma3ds frome here: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases
    IMHO i would use the 5.2 version (this was the first Luma release).
    DL that and copy the named files in Plailects guide to the root of your SD card (overwrite the existing one!)
    Put the SD card back and boot your 3DS.
    Get into the menuhax and start Luma........?!?!?
    (Let us know what happened) ;)

    P.S. sometimes it needs 3 or 4 tries before it boots correctly!

    Did you trie it more than one time?
    Do you have and OLD or NEW 3DS?
    Did you have a Gateway card and played til now with the NAND made by Gateway?
    Did you do Part 1 and Part 2 from Plailect's guide?
    Sorry some questions to make the solution finding faster :)
    Please let us know.

    BTW i changed my second poste because i made a mistake! Did you read that again?

    Hold Select while booting Luma3DS and make sure you don't have either of the sysNAND options checked.

    Can you try holding Select as you boot up Luma3DS? Also, can you try more than one time?

    If neither of those do anything, can you try holding your menuhax trigger button shortly after launching Luma3DS?

    Nothing happens just a black screen with both emunand and luma3ds.

    Maybe your memory card is corrupted or bad. Did you buy it from a reputable seller? eBay sellers and 3rd party Amazon sellers often sell fake/counterfeit cards that are either bad quality knockoffs, original cards that failed QC and were supposed to be thrown but were sold anyway, or simply cards with a fake capacity that will start corrupting data once you put more files on than the actual capacity can hold. China/HK based sites such as flashcart sellers also do this frequently.

    I'm having a similar issue. I have followed the guide and managed to get into the RedNAND the first time, but now that I updated it, I get a black screen.
    O3DS running v9.0.0-20U using menuhax and all the updated files told in the guide
    Going to try and restore RedNAND by cloning my SysNAND over to it since SysNAND is still working fine

    EDIT: So the clone got RedNAND booting again. Went to the System Settings Emu 9.0.0-20U; all good. System Update > An Error Has Occurred. System reboots. Replaced with Luma Version 5.2 as recommended in one of the comments. It managed to boot up again, but still refuses to update. "An error has occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted."

    EDIT2: I'm an idiot, because I have been blocking Updates from Nintendo because I have a WiiU I don't want updated, it wouldn't update my 3DS. Ignore my dumbness

    You are not "dumb"!
    You made a mistake in the first time you installed A9LH ....... that's all :)
    I could tell you stories like that from my experience with HW and SW ;)

    your sysnand may be corrpt like mine was. try to boot decrypt 9 by pressing start while powering on the system, or when you boot the system, hold the R button while turning on. this boots to emunand.

    Should I restore sysnand by using the plaisupdater and selecting downgrade?

    No you should restore your sysnand from EmuNAND9 or Decrypt9WIP, I would doublecheck with someone else first but that's what I did I believe
    Going to be working on my 2nd o3DS soon to try and downgrade from 10.7.0-32U to 9.2.0-20 and get the homebrew launcher going

    Hey man, were you able to solve the problem? I have the exact same problem as you and can't solve.

    Try using an older version of Luma, like 5.2.
