    Hello everyone.

    I had a O3DS on:
    • Sysnand 9.2
    • Emunand 11.0 rxTools
    Then my emunand corrupted and I decided to wipe my SD card and start the Plailect guide to install arm9 on the device.

    Everything went ok, but now I can't open the Friend List. I've already tried opening and left the device in that screen for 20 minutes and this haven't solved the problem.

    I've read that formatting the system can help, but now I'm on Sysnand 11.0.0 with arm9.
    If I format the console I will lost the arm9loader?

    Also, can I use Hourglass9 to inject my 9.2 sysnand to downgrade the system and then format it?
    Is this possible or only with hardmod?

    Thanks for you time! :)

    You can NOT lose arm9loader ever, I mean you probably could do it with hourgalss9 but why?

    My fear was when I format the console it wipe the arm9loader, then if I'm on 9.2 it would be more safe to format the system.

    So:
    • Sysnand on 11.0.0
    • Downgrade back to 9.2 using Hourglass9
    • Format the system
    • Since I've already have the OTP just install the arm9 and update the system.

    This even makes sense? hahaha

    For future reference though, A9LH has FIRM protection. Therefore, you can system format all you want. Just make sure you have a backup of your sd, since it needs the arm9loaderhax.bin to boot.

    I had the same issue. Just leave it open. It can take 15+ minutes to finally load the first time, but it will load eventually. After that it should start loading like normal.

    I remember finding that answer a couple weeks ago. It was a thread buried somewhere in these forums from about 4 years ago.

    The official Luma3DS release is still at 5.5 from May 27, so you'd have to grab a more recent build from astronautlevel2: https://astronautlevel2.github.io/Luma3DS/
    Note those are unofficial builds -- use at your own risk.
