    What the title says... When I try to update, at the bottom it says, "FATAL: Could not find arm9loaderhax.bin FATAL: Could not get A9LH payload..." Why is this a thing and how do I make it not a think? Thanks in advance as always!

    Newest Luma is not compatible with A9LH, you gotta update to Boot9Strap, takes like 5minutes - https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s

    Simple. Update to B9S in order to use the latest release, job done.

    Are these steps the same for the o3ds? I updated my emunand last night, turned off my 3ds and now get a black screen when going into luma. My setup is old but pretty sure I have a9lh.

    Yep the same, N3DS's have to download an extra file, the guide runs through everything

    And that should fix the screen hanging when I boot luma? I use oothax then boot luma and it hangs :/

    Not sure honestly. So you are on Luma A9LH & tried to system update to 11.4 (your emunand)?

    Yes. I'm pretty sure I did the steps for a9lh. It's been a while since I've done anything with my ds. I'll have to double check my sd

    Can you boot into Luma settings by holding select on boot? Or decrypt9 holding start on boot? If you can I think you're good to go

    I'm just now starting the steps on the site you listed, but my "luma/payloads" directory is called "luma/codelists". I'll have to make sure I downloaded all needed files, it seems the steps are a bit off (?)

    Near N3DS
    Sounds like you're using MenuHax or something similar. If you can't get to Luma3DS config screen by pressing and holding select as you boot your 3DS, do the Guide from beginning.
