Hello there!

I bought a 3ds from a our local kid two days ago, he said it had some games on it and that's about it. I tried to connect it to the internet, and went to update the system so I can play with others online.
Biggest mistake of my life, right? I get a black screen with white characters (I think it's called Arm11, I did some research)

I watched a couple videos on the internet on how to fix the issue, it says to download Luma3DS, extract the files and paste them on the 3DS card, tried rebooting it without SD card too, but it's not working regardless

I think the content of the sd card is weird too because I have two files, one is called Private, the otheer one is called 24abc0a97cb78cae8e036cddfd1f6601 and everything inside the files is just filed with numbers..

What do I do? Can anyone help me with that please? I am kind of an idiot when it comes to stuff like this

put boo.firm and boot.3dsx on the root of the sd card. the reason it's not working without an sd card is that the boot.firm needs to be on the ctrNAND.

Thanks for the reply, really appreciated, bytut I got no idea how to do that...

just don't mess with the Nintendo 3DS folder. place the boot.firm and boot.3dsx on the root of the card. make sure it's the latest version of luma too.
