    What all did you do exactly? What was the last step you took of the guide?

    geez u guys respond fast heh yeah so i was dumb so after downgrading my 11.2 3ds with dsi-ware i went to 9.2 got a nand backup with decrypt9 as i was told then i went onto the 2.1 ctr transfer and followed those steps then i went onto installing arm9loader on the 3ds and followed the steps as it said i should be on 2.1 so after doing the installation of arm9loader and following the guide to boot into luma im getting a black screen and ive tried turning it off and tried doing the trouble shooting https://github.com/Plailect/Guide_RedNAND/wiki/Troubleshooting#ts_sys_a9lh but nothings happening and the guide i was following was this one https://plailect.github.io/Guide/installing-arm9loaderhax any advice?

    What happens when you press Start then press the Power button, or Select then the Power button?

    First try to boot without the SD card. If it boots and immediatly shuts off, you're not bricked.
    If it stay's with the power LED ON and a black screen, then it is probably a BRICK.

    What @KunoichiZ was saying is for you to press SELECT (and keep pressing) while you power ON the console. Does the Luma config launches?

    Also try the troubleshooting from the new guide (you were using the troubleshooting from the old one) that is here:
    https://plailect.github.io/Guide/troubleshooting and read "Black screen on SysNAND boot"

    If none of this work you can see this thread for a vouched modder for a hardmod ( @vb_encryption_vb is US based):
