    So I was playing Mario Bros. 3 on mGba Retorarch when it froze and then the system restarted. At that point I wanted to go into the Homebrew menu, so I run the loader and it freezes.

    I restarted my 3DS and it shows my Luma Splash Screen and nothing happens. The wireless light doesn't even come on. Do you think restoring a nand backup will solve the problem?

    Specs: o3DS Luma CFW Arm9, system version 11.0.0-33U.

    Should just be a minor issue, maybe the SD Card isn't making full content with the console, or you somehow updated??

    Shouldn't be a brick if your were regularly playing.

    Pretty sure I didn't trigger some secret update. I can try to test the SD card.
    Edit: SD card works fine. Even made Windows Scan and Repair it.

    Your SD Card, do you have a Luma3DS.dat or similar? Even if you do, try replacing it.

    Updating Luma solved the problem. Thanks for your help! (Staff can ditch this thread)
