    N3DS Luma3DS Emunand that was on version 11.0.33 or something very similar. Attempted to update last night, the update failed, told me to hold the power button and try again, and now it constantly stays on both screens "black" (off) when trying to boot into Luma. Things like HBLauncher and stuff work fine though. What do I do? Anyway to recover my Emunand's data? I have all my backups installed onto it and would like to not have to spend 2 weeks redoing it all.
    Thanks!

    had a similar issue when I first installed luma. check my posts out, see if anything is similar and maybe what I did can help.

    ok, so my suggestion is, if you can get into homebrew, then make a backup of your emunand. and then just re-mod your system. then restore the nand. if after remodding the nand doesnt work for some reason you'll know that was the issue and most things probably wont be recoverable. I also suggest that if any save managers are in .3dsx format, use that to extract your saves if you do have homebrew access.
