    So.. I updated my old 3ds to b9s and used it for a bit and removed sd and everything still worked fine. So I thought let's try it on my new 3ds xl. I do it. Everything seemed fine for it so without testing to see if it still works without it, I deleted the files in the sd card to use it on another device. Later finding out it just blinks the led then off when hitting the button. I know what's wrong, I just don't know how to get the files back needed for boot. If someone can help that would be amazing.

    you mean boot.firm? download latest release of luma and place boot.firm on the root of the SD.

    then you must be on A9LH instead of B9S, place arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the SD card, you can find that on luma 7.0.5 release.

    Have you formatted the SD card after the use in the new 3DS? 3DS only recognice Fat32 format.

    I used my Samsung S6 to format it


    Just checked, it's formatted as FAT not FAT32

    Make sure to format it as FAT32, then try the Luma 7.1 boot.firm, not the newest one, if the newest one still doesn't work.

    Older versions of B9S can't boot the recent Luma releases.

    Success! That worked!
    I formatted as FAT32, placed the 7.1.7 boot.firm on my sd card, turned my console on, and now i'm at the luma3ds config screen!

    Just finished setting up the config now at Homemenu

    Great. Now go ahead and update B9S so you can use the newest Luma.
