    I am finding it difficult to launch GodMode9 (Power on then holding Start) on my New Nintendo 3DS. I can only successfully launch it 1 in about 20 tries. That means, it can still launch normally. But most of the time I will power on my system and once I press and hold Start, my 3DS just doesn't turn on. The blue light turns on but turns off as soon as I hold Start. I don't have this problem doing it on my O3DS though.

    I have all the latest version of Luma and Godmode9. I tried placing GodMode9.firm from /luma/payloads/ to the root of my SD card and renamed it boot.firm just to be able to launch it. But obviously, that is not the most seamless way of doing things as I have to revert things back to the way they are afterwards. I have been frustrated as I really want to back up certain GBA saves I have.

    You have to be holding start before turning the console on. Try again that way and see if that works for you.

    Hi, thanks for the response. I have tried that method as well and still no success.

    Could be this known problem: https://github.com/d0k3/GodMode9/issues/466

    Put an additional .firm payload into the payloads folder (for example the previous version of GodMode9) and try again.

    SD:/luma/payloads/GodMode9_1.7.1.firm
    SD:/luma/payloads/GodMode9_1.8.0.firm


    After that holding (Start) brings up the chainloader menu and both versions should works.

    I'll try adding another payload. May I ask, what additional payload you added?
