    Hey, so I recently got a bigger sd card, so I copy and pasted all the files from the old sd card to the new one. But now whenever I turn on my 3ds (while new sd card is in), it says "An error has ocurred: Failed to apply 1 Firm patch(es). Press any button to shutdown" (This doesn't occur when I have the old sd card in, btw). From what I've found online, I'm supposed to download the most recent boot.firm for Luma, and then put it on the root of the sd card, thus overwriting the old boot.firm, but that doesn't change anything, I still get the exact same error when I turn my 3ds on. I am on Luma v8.1.1 and in the Luma configuration menu, "enable loading external FIRMS and modules" is checked.

    Your SD card needs to be formatted FAT32 + 32 KB cluster size in order for the 3DS to read it. If it's bigger than 32 GB, use guiformat.

    For a thorough rundown on checking whether your newly purchased card is fake, updating the custom firmware on both SD card and CTRNAND, and making backups of your most important data, follow this post.

    Formatting my new sd card resolved the issue, thank you so much!

    You might also want to update the Luma3DS FIRM on your CTRNAND since it looks like it's out of date. Instructions are on section VI of this page

    So when I go to section VI of that guide, I get stuck on the 6th step, bc when I press the home button, there is no "scripts" option.

    so i looked at the site that you gave and how important is "Backup your SysNAND image and save this somewhere on your computer or external drive." i dont have enough space to do it using a 64 gb

    As said best by

    For peace of mind, get yourself a spare SD card, flash drive, or external portable hard drive for the express purpose of backing up your data. Look at Amazon or my signature as a starting reference.
    If money's tight, there's cloud storage using Google drive. There's absolutely no excuse in NOT backing up important files.

    ok. with dumping a title, what does it mean to move it to .cia? Also, in order, what would the back up files from the above look like on the sd card? so that i coud back it up.
