Tapatalk notified me about creation of this guide. Maybe my phone thinks I'm an idiot who needs to update their 3DS CFW.

Multi-updater? Luma3DS updater? It would help if you told people which app you were talking about, as more than likely the majority of them don't have it installed.

luma updater is not supported anymore and doesnt work.

I'm gonna be straight and honest with you guys. I only picked up this project to fix the small text issues that the original had. I didn't expect myself to keep up with the project when b9s dropped nor did I expect the hourlies to become an issue.

Most of the changes to LU were not my code (as seen and properly credited in the changelogs). I can't call myself a dev because most (if not 99%) of the changes weren't me. My knowledge of C/C++ isn't anywhere near to the level of the app. I'm a full time online college student who's swamped with homework and I also have to help take care of my grandma.

I don't want you guys to think I'm trying to find the easy way out of this and beg for help. I want to help. I want to make LU an app that people can use and be happy with when the Luma devs release an update. I'm not begging for help. I just want to explain my situation.

I don't know if it's a LumaUpdater issue, a Luma one or a problem with my 3dses, but after updating to Luma 9.0, I got a generic menu error in my o3ds and no error on my new 3dsXL but I couldn't open the theme shop because it couldn't find any data...
Is it a Luma problem?
