    My 3ds is off when I turn it on the blue Led turns on for half a second then turns off. Nothing else happens the screen stays off.

    What did you do before that? Did you update anything like B9S or Luma?

    Either of those will require you to update the other.

    The light turning off means it can't find your boot.firm or it's the incorrect boot.firm.

    Download Luma 7.1 and put the boot.firm (overwriting any that is already there) on your SD card. If that doesn't work, try Luma 8.0. One of them should work.

    I think the problem is that it reads my CTR NAND boot.firm and not the one from my sd card

    Then try with another SD card --- the SD should take priority. If it doesn't, that's a big bug.

    Make sure you do try with both 7.1 and 8.0 before giving up though.
