    hi everyone !
    I thought it was safe to update with BS9 installed just I updated my 2DS
    I completely followed the 3ds guide and even updating to bootstrap9. It worked perfectly.
    Then I decided to update from 11.2 to 11.4
    Now when rebooting I lost payloads and when appearing on home menu, I can see my stuff but when touching it said " download from eshop"

    did I lose my CFW ?
    Is there a way to go back ?
    i have all my nand backup

    thanks in advance

    If they're in .bin format, they can not be loaded by Luma3DS 7.1 onward, as it's B9S exclusive (.firm format only).

    Ensure inside SD:/luma/payloads/ you only have files with the .firm extension.

    thank for reply
    I know all of that. My luma payloads were all in .firm

    it was working fine! by pressing selected button, i could load whatever payload I want, now it's all gone. I even did the transfer of boot.firm into sysnand ctr...and luma file into sysnand rw...

    What happens when you hold Select on boot? (Press it before pressing power).

    So you definitely followed 3ds.guide in the past and had either a9lh or b9s? Impossible to lose your exploit just by updating. There's something you're not telling us.

    Either you :
    - restored a NAND backup using Decrypt9 without the "keep a9lh" option, or GodMode9 without the "safe" option,
    - never had a9lh/b9s and instead only had menuhax,
    - were using Gateway on sysNAND mode

    nonz of your three options.
    i did have gateway but i had emunand for it
    now i trying to follow the 3ds guide but when mounting it cannot copy savedata because the fat image is 60 kb and the savadata from dsi sudoku is 64 kb :(

    Which page and step are you on exactly? I'm not super familiar with the DSiWare installation guide, but this could help someone else.

    It is working now
    I followed the 3ds guide. => it worked. => am on cfw 11.4
    Then, I simply restore with godmode9 (safe) and got back to 11.2 (working perfectly)
    I turned out when I push select button, I didn't see I had tick autoboot on emunand / enable emunand firm when booting with R (I was tired, I guess) / show nand in setting....
    The previous hack was still there, i could navigate and see boot.firm and luma payloads were there in sysnand ctrnand.

    So i guess, either after updating if one of those options is enabled, it simply disable cfw luma and its chainloader.

    or
    my second thought is when putting luma/ payloads (Godmode, emunand9, hourglouss, gateway.bin etc...) files in sysnand ctr, perhaps it is messing with

    Follow https://3ds.guide/ntrboot and get an ntrboot capable flashcart. Don't use Gateway again. If you want to get your save files out let me know and I'll tell you how.

    You said you were using Gateway sysNAND right? Restore a backup of it to emuNAND and put the SD card files back. They should show up if you boot into emuNAND now. If they don't, then they're lost - the files themselves are no good on their own, you need to have the NAND that they were on (they're encrypted for it).
