Hey guys:D

I accidentally updated my system and I got this error every time. I tried to switch the boot firm, from the latest hourly build but it doesnt work.
I also tried to download the latest Luma.zip from the Internet, but it doesnt work too. I also cant find a Luma.zip for version 11.15 only 11.14:(.

Sorry for my bad english because I am german^_^

Thx in Future:)

We've not had a "Failed to apply 1 FIRM patch(es)" for a pretty long time.

[…]I accidentally updated my system […]
Please forgive my ignorance. This happens so often and I can't reproduce it. How to accidentally update a 2|3DS? I've tried, but never managed to get a system of the 3DS family to simply update without actively advising it to do so (getting the ridicolous disclaimer from Nintendo every time and have to "agree" with it).

Only on Sd card:)
Minimalist actions aren't really sustainable and fault-tolerant. Please update boot.firm on CTRNAND as well to make sure the console is still able to boot without SD or in case of SD failure/corruption. Relevant link on The Guide (German version):
https://3ds.hacks.guide/de_DE/restoring-updating-cfw.html
(Note that I never read the German version and have no idea how good it is. In doubt use the English version)
