    if you reach luma configuration pressing select on boot, and the configuration shows up in second 0: your device is NOT bricked. Can you reach hourglass9 booting with start button pressed?

    With the device off: hold start, then power on. Hold until hourglass9 appears.

    If doesn't work: please verify the file start_hourglass9.bin is in SD:/luma/payloads/ and try again.
    If doesn't work: redownload hourglass9 and try again.

    Once working: continue with the guide.

    You clearly didn't read the entire Section 3, because it says:
    Edit: I see, you can't boot the chainloader menu. Make sure Luma is updated to the latest version.
    If it still doesn't work, try the latest build here: https://jenkins.hakujou.fr/job/3DS/job/Luma3DS/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/Luma3DS.zip

    You only need arm9loaderhax.bin.

    If that still doesn't work, try renaming Hourglass9.bin to start_Hourglass9.bin and try again. This shouldn't be necessary anymore now that Luma has a chainloader menu, but since that doesn't seem to be working for you, it's worth a shot.

    Remember that NAND you where supposed to back up when you made a copy of your files9 folder? Make shure you have it.
