    Hey I'm on an o3ds and i used an updater for luma that I had from the fbi downloader. and after it was done the system rebooted but nothing happened so I pressed the power button, Blue light came on for a second and then turned off. tried again same result. pulled the sd card. same result. any ideas to fix this? haven't really done much on this lately so not really sure what I should try.

    First things first, you DID NOT BRICK! The 8.x versions of Luma just are neither compatible with A9LH nor with older versions of B9S. :-)

    You just have to first update Boot9Strap and then Luma. Nothing to worry about!

    Just follow this guide if you already got an early version of B9S:
    https://3ds.guide/updating-b9s

    If you are on A9LH, then follow this guide:
    https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s

    Make sure you follow the guide step by step! Have fun! :-)

    Hey Thanks for your help. I'm actually having issues with the last part of the update tutorial I was unable to locate the script mentioned in it(don't know if I'm an idiot or it's just not there any more) but since I couldn't find the file when i was putting stuff on the sd card i'm kinda stuck at this part. i did get back into the system though so thanks for that. any clue what I should do about the missing script though?

    Can you show us what step of the guide you got stuck on? So we can understand what do you mean by "script" :)

    Did you do this first?:

    1. Copy setup_ctrnand_luma3ds.gm9 to the /gm9/scripts/ folder on your SD card

    I tried but the only files there were
    Backup EmuNAND.gm9
    Backup SysNAND.gm9

    Let me fix something, the torrent thing is not needed for .gm9 files since those don't use any of Nintendo's code. Plus I already gave him the link on this post

    Yeah, I thought it was a magnet link, my bad! Edited my post though. Sorry for misleading information!

    Totally just saw that. I had the file already. I downloaded it. I was looking in one of the other files... Lol sorry for extending this farther.
