    I'm on the 16 step of this A9LH guide - https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-3-(RedNAND). When I press start I just get a black screen. I've waited for 4 minutes so I've shut my New 3DS down and tried to boot it up again. This time i just got only black screen with no configuration. When I press select at this black screen I can go to the configuration back. I'm using default 4GB card because my 32GB one is acting weird (I couldn't make a sysNAND backup on it, but it worked on the default one). I'm also using the newest dev version of Luma3DS. I've waited on this black screen for long time for the second time and still - nothing happened. What should I do now?

    Waiting a long time wont help you. If it hasnt loaded in like 10 second or so it probably wont, however black screen can be normal. If it happens 5-10 times without booting then something is wrong. 2-3 times, can just be bad luck. Try a few more times and report back.

    I've tried to boot it many times before, now I've tried 3 more times and still - just a black screen. I've even tried pressing the L button (the button for launching menuhax) while booting this cfw and still - nothing happened.

    Put firmware.bin from the luma site in the luma folder on the SD card. Since you don't have A9LH installed yet you're probably booting through menuhax still.

    Where is firmware.bin? I can't find it anywhere on that (https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases) website.

    And in the tutorial there was nothing said about the firmware.bin file.

    I've checked that Mega folder with firmwares and there were some files for CFWs but there weren't any for Luma3DS.

    I've somehow booted to it. I've used the non-dev normal version instead.

    Well, I've written before that I've used dev version and you didn't said anything about it. I thought that it was just the newest version, something like beta. In the guide it said to download the newest version and there wasn't anything about dev and non-dev version.

    Uhh, I actually fixed that problem but no, I haven't. I haven't even used any flashcards.
