    Hi everyone i succesfully installed a9lh on my eur n3ds but i ve got one problem, i cant boot into sysnand.
    I was trying luma nightly, different arm9loaderhax.bin files but nothing works, just black screen.
    All the tools like hourglass or emunand9 works perfectly when i boot them by pressing power on+start or select.
    Thanks in advance.

    I could be wrong here, but I was under the impression that if you followed Plailects guide, you always boot to Sysnand.

    Did you flash a working NAND backup with Hourglass9 as instructed in the A9LH guide?

    So to me, you ARE booting into SYSnand.

    Try holding Select as you boot to make sure "updated sysNAND" is ticked in config.

    If that doesn't work, try redownloading arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma 5.5.

    If that doesn't work try the one from Luma 5.2.

    If that doesn't work either then I don't have any other ideas.

    Rename "Nintendo 3DS" folder to something else (temporarily) and try boot the console.

    I see... try all Quantumcat's mentioned methods first.
    If it still doesn't work then try with a spare fresh SD card with just latest Luma3DS arm9loaderhax.bin, do the Luma3DS initial setup and see if it boots fine in sysNAND.

    It will by default show you Luma3DS settings. Make sure you checkmark "Updated sysNAND"
    If it still shows blank screen then I suspect that the backup you flashed might not be proper one...
    Flash original backups using hourglass9 so that you don't lose A9LH by any chance.

    1. Turn your 3DS off.
    2. Hold the Select button
    3. While still holding the button, turn on your console
    4. In the config menu that comes up, tick "updated sysNAND".
    5. Press Start to reboot

    Let us know if that fixes the problem or not.

    Did you successfully get into the menu and make sure updated sysNAND was ticked? Try redownloading the Luma 5.5 files and recopy the arm9loaderhax.bin to your SD card. If that doesn't work, try Luma 5.2.
    Edit: also try deleting the config file off your SD so the menu comes up automatically on boot.

    do you have any other 9.x+ nand backups and make sure you have the [autoboot sysnand] option selected in the luma configuration (just incase you still have a bricked 2.x emunand on your sd

    Something like this happened to me. When you turn it on and you get the black screen, eject the SD card. It should boot you back to the home menu. From that point, I went to settings and formatted the console.

    Do you have the luma folder on your SD card's root? It sounds like from that sentence that's not saving the settings and it needs that luma folder.
