    Ok, so awhile ago I've had this old 3DS that I used for a bit and modded around with yeeeears ago..well as time went on, I eventually upgraded to the New 3DS. I did a system transfer.

    Without thinking, I did a system transfer and then I formatted it and sat the system aside for awhile.

    I decided to bring it back out since I have a 4 year old who is into gaming and I had the idea of re-modding this one.

    So I booted it up, NOTICED THAT LUMA v6.6 was on it! So that would mean that it's still modded.. uh right?

    The firmware is up-to-date unfortunately but I don't mind redoing seedminer, but the issue is..it tells me on a certain guide that if I try it while knowing I have LUMA3DS installed, it could brick it.. cant seem to load Rosalina up on Download Play or anything either, I'm a bit old so my brain might be confused and I need to have something explained to me.. but what should I do? Is this 3DS a waste now, or? Like I said. Everything has been cleaned out but somehow Luna3DS remains.

    Did I fuck it up by System-transferring and cleaning it out? Someone help!

    (sorry for my awful first post here you guys lol)

    That means your custom firmware is running on CTRNAND. Try removing your SD card, turn on the 3DS, and hold (Select) if it boots to that configuration.

    Do the A9LH to B9S update, then the finalizing part.
