    So my N3ds working fine using cake cfw and after im not using it for a few month i just boot it up a while ago and everything seem to work fine, i can get into boot cfw and play game normally until i want to play online and system said i have to update (on Emunand) and so i did and now i cant seem to get it to work again, my 3ds just stuck on black screen after choosing boot cfw. First of all my fr set it up for me so im not really good with this stuff so please have patience with me if i seem stupid at time. Second my version is on 9.2(original version not Cfw) after downgrade.
    My homebrew launcher is 1.1.0
    CakeFW version 138
    NATIVE_FIRM version: 10.2.0
    also after i launch cake from homebrew launcher i notice that on lower screen its said that:
    Mounted Sd card
    Loaded config file
    Loading NATIVE_FIRM
    Loaded FIRM
    Loaded FIRM key
    Decrypting FIRM
    Decrypting the NCCH
    Decrypting the exefs
    Decrypting ARM9 FIRM binary
    Loading AGB_FIRM
    Failed to load FIRM
    Loading cakes
    Loaded selected cakes
    So maybe my problem is i have to fix the "Failed to load FIRM"?? Also should i still continue using cakes or switch to something else( other homebrew that more convenience)? Thank you for taking your time to help this poor soul.

    CakesFW has not been updated to support 11.3 (to my knowledge) and that's why you get a black screen when you launch your CFW. Most if not everyone will link you to this guide to set up custom firmware: http://3ds.guide.

    If you want to keep your games and save files, I would recommend at least keeping the Nintendo 3DS folder and remove anything related to CakesFW.
