    Can you still use payloads? Maybe restoring a nand backup from hourglass9 would help.

    Gonna go out on a limb and say you probably have a fake sd card, check it with fake flash tester you could probably get it to boot again by simply formatting and starting again, but if your sd card is a fake it will just happen again

    Once you get everything sorted out, you might want to copy arm9loaderhax.bin to your CTRNAND as a precaution.

    Yeah it's not reading the arm9loaderhax.bin, the easiest things to rule out first would be testing with another sd card first, if it works with another card then try backing up all your files, then reformatting the sd card to fat32 and copying fresh files on (just double check the authenticity while it's freshly formatted still, although most common fakes are sandisk in my experience, although even the most obscure brand can be ripped off too to try sell fake cards)

    If it doesn't work with any sd cards (especially if they work on another 3ds) then you may have a fault on the sd slot or something

    It could be a fake card, labeled 16GB but actually like 4GB. You could try h2testw (I think that's the name, not really sure) and see what the real capacity is. It could also just be dead.

    As I said, just copy the files off, reformat the drive to fat32and check it over with fake flash tester (linked above) and even if it does pass as genuine it could have just been random corruption or the card itself is failing

    SD cards have finite lifespans.

    Like I said earlier, if you have not already done so, you should copy arm9loaderhax.bin from the root of your SD card to the root of your CTRNAND. With a compatible A9LH install, it can load Luma3DS without an SD card.

    Download Godmode9 to your payloads folder in the luma folder and name it something like up_Godmode9.bin. Turn on your 3DS while holding up and navigate to the SD card. Press Y on arm9loaderhax.bin on the root and press b to go back to the main menu. Go into CTRNAND and press y and click "Copy path(s)".
