    Trying to update to 1.2 - but Luma won't boot into chainloader menu when holding start at boot.

    it wont let me. i go through and update it through updater - and it says successful, however launching updater again still shows 7.1 installed

    Do I want to enable boot.firm on CTR-NAND?

    Hello,

    Did you install boot.firm in CTR sysNAND too? Maybe you boot on it and luma updated the one in the SD.

    Did you just move the .firm to the root or did you follow the guide I linked?

    That's what I'm saying in my first post - i Can't boot in to the Luma chainloader screen to follow that guide, when holding start on boot it does nothing but go to home menu - now 3DS wont boot at all because i tried to enable boot.firm on CTR-NAND

    I assumed that you already tried to update B9S, but didn't update Luma while doing so, sorry.
    B9S 1.0 can't launch Luma 8.0, which means you have to downgrade, grab the 7.1 release here: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v7.1

    Are you sure you even have any payloads in "/luma/payloads/"?

    Godmode9 and SafeB9SInstaller are currently in there - just move the boot.firm file over to SD card?

    Just replace the current boot.firm with the 7.1 one.

    Are the payloads .bin's or .firm's?

    Yes! I'm relieved to know that I wasn't the only one having these problems!

    What I did was move the safe installer to CTRNAND. It will run that way, and now my system even tells me that I'm at Luma 8.0. Problem is, when I go into the Luma Updater, it displays my version of Luma in red. Red is never good, is it?

    i deleted the boot.firm on my sd root and replaced with the Luma7.1 that can be downloaded here: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v7.1
    after i did that it let me boot into the chainloader -
