    I installed some custom GBA cias on my N3DS (on 11.4.0-37U), specifically Pokemon Fire Red and Emerald. First couple of times I played them they worked. Now when I start them up, they stay on a black screen and don't load. I tried uninstalling them and reinstalling them, no change. I installed other GBA games to see if they had the same problem. Yup. Can anyone help me out?

    You need to update Luma3DS. Download LumaUpdater, then run LumaUpdater and it should update Luma3DS to the latest Hourly or Stable build.

    If you're using a different Custom Firmware (such as Corbenik), refer to their instructions on how to update the firmware (which should be very similar procedure).
