    Have you tried pulling out the SD card before powering on?

    Try hold SELECT key when powering on. Does it show up the Luma3DS setup menu?
    If yes, then first set it up according to the guide and press START to save changes and reboot.
    If still shows up blank screen then rename "Nintendo 3DS" folder to something else and try powering on again.

    1. Rename /arm9loaderhax.bin, if it exists, to something else.
    2. Place the arm9loaderhax.bin from the archive linked above in your SD root.
    3. Insert your SD card into your 3DS and power on.
    4. Press A. Your 3DS should power off; this means arm9loaderhax is working and something else is broken; your device is not bricked.

    3ds is not bricked. probably some bad configuration of cfw. are you using luma3DS? if yes, can you try holding SELECT on boot?

    Yes I am using Luma3DS and holding SELECT on boot does nothing.
    Glad to hear 3DS is not bricked! I will remove every files on the SD card and copy just Luma files

    Re-download Luma3DS and try putting arm9loaderhax.bin on fresh spare mirco SD card (ie. the one that has no emuNAND partition and formatted to FAT32)
    We need to first confirm that it shows up something. Without SD card it will power off instantly = means the A9LH is installed fine and works as intended.

    I can't boot ctrbootmanager9 anymore with A9LH 2.0, right? This is my problem, with luma3DS, it works but with ctrbootmanager9 it doesn't

    You're right, at this step it is. But some people had to pull it out after downgrading to make it boot again.

    Glad to know it works, now get back on your previous SD card, copy and backup everything from it to your PC
    Do you have any emuNAND on previous SD card? Backup that as well using "emuNAND Tool" on PC
    Use "MiniTool Partition Wizard" to get rid of any partitions on the previous SD card, set it as Primary partition and format to FAT32
    Put armloaderhax.bin, and emuNAND9 payload in luma\payloads folder (name it something like y_emunand9.bin)
    Hold Y key when powering on it will take you to emuNAND9 menu, use that to create GW emuNAND (not RedNAND)
    Once that's done, power off. Put the files back that you backed up earlier on PC, as well as inject emuNAND.bin using "emuNAND Tool"
    Put the SD card back in console. Hold SELECT when powering on to set up according to guide. Done.

    What is this A9LH 2.0? As long as you using latest Luma3DS arm9loaderhax.bin and put the latest builds of each payloads it should work I think. Each of them has to renamed according to Luma3DS guide.
    I have put GW Launcher.dat at root of SD card and the GW arm9loaderhax.bin as a payload renamed to down_gw9.bin in luma\payloads folder and it works when holding D-pad Down key and powering on.
