    Just get the latest boot.firm from https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases and put it on the SD card root.
    You can inject it into CTRNAND to allow the console to boot without a SD card though there is not much reason you would normally want to do that, it might be useful in the unlikely scenario your SD card corrupts or fails while you're away from home and have no chance to fix it, but you have a bunch of retail games with you that you would like to play. Luma3DS Updater has an option to inject to CTRNAND built in.

    Should just need boot.3dsx from https://github.com/fincs/new-hbmenu/releases/ on the root of the SD and then to follow https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup again to get the essential homebrew back. As well as the boot.firm from Luma3DS of course.
