I had saved a game and shut down my 3ds earlier. Now it boots to a black screen.

    I tried deleting the luma/config.bin and then setting my options in configuration (Which ones do I need enable exactly?)

    And that didn't work. So I'm freaking out, wondering why it's all of a sudden black screening.

    Any help??

    Same happened to me, but I could do was restore using a backup nand. Not sure if there are other methods

    1. Copy everything off your SD card.
    2. Reformat the card as FAT32 + 32 KB cluster size. Use guiformat if it's bigger than 32 GB.
    3. Do a Full Write + Verify Test that card with H2testw.
    4. If the card passes, copy everything back onto it.
    5. Remove and reinsert your 3DS battery to reset RAM memory.
    6. Boot the 3DS without the card. Boot the 3DS again with it.

    If those don't work, this might be the rare bug where some system stuff on the SD card gets corrupted, leaving it on the black screen for up to 10 minutes should solve it.
