    I'm hoping someone could help with an issue I've been having regarding GBA games on my N3DS. I posted here few weeks ago but was unable to find a solution. Essentially when I boot a GBA VC game (or injected/ cia GBA) the system powers off within a few seconds. All other VC games boot/run fine (NES,GB,GBC,SNES). I am certain the games worked in the past. I recently updated my old/ original A9LH (hacked it when the guide first came out) to SigHax hoping it would fix the issue, but no luck. I also tried uninstalling/ reinstalling the games no luck either.

    I have a N3DS with SigHax and a 128GB kingston MicroSD
    Luma3DS 7.1
    (x)Show NAND user string in sys setting
    (x)Show GBA boot screen in patched ABG_FIRM
    (x)Enable exception handlers
    the rest is unchecked/default.

    I unchecked the GBA boot screen in patched ABG_FIRM from the Luma3DS settings upon boot and the games work again. If someone could explain what that function does that would be nice.

    It certainly shouldn't cause your console to turn off...

    If you enable the gba logo, the rom header will be verified (no differently than what a real gba would do), so poorly edited roms wouldn't work; but the "don't work" means stopping at the GAME BOY logo, nothing more and nothing less, this is probably a bug in the logo patch
