    Do not use nightlies.
    They have bugs.
    Use 8.0 retail instead.

    Same results here. After setting up LUMA3DS (i let it default) it will show me the ARM9 exception error. :(

    The initial 8.0 was somewhat rushed and has errors to iron out.

    You can try my build 461035b i just compiled an hour ago > ZS

    Maybe your nand is the reason, did you use patches or something else?

    I would chainload gm9, create a backup and ctr transfer to a clean 9.2

    There's your problem. System Versions <9.0 have not been tested and are likely to never be supported.

    I recommend you make a NAND backup, and then update to 11.4. When and how, exactly, does the error occur?

    Put a .firm payload file in your sd:/luma/payloads folder, and hold the Start button while booting.

    There have been plenty of reports of 'stable' Luma fims causing crashes (though I personally haven't experienced any). Luma is not divine and not beyond criticism. It can have flaws.

    Here is the link to the latest GodMode9 release.

    If you can't boot into the Luma Chainload menu, try temporarily putting GodMode9 on the root of your SD card as boot.firm (backup your current boot.firm, which is Luma, before doing this).

    (In addition, here is a link to the latest SafeB9SInstaller. If possible, try to see if you can boot into this as well.)

    He can't boot since luma3ds fails, updating to 11.4 straight away will be a big PROBLEM if BS9 is deactivated > HardwareMOD / DSi game to install BS9 again.

    Chainloading gm9 and to ctr transfer to at least 9.2 without disabling BS9 is safe!

    After booting Luma3DS, your BS9 installation is secured, just update the normal way.

    The first thing you should do is backup your current NAND (In GodMode9, press Home, then select 'More...', then select 'Backup NAND').

    As for updating your SysNAND, I'm not 100% sure. The safest thing to do would be to make an issue on Luma's Github page, and wait for a release that supports older System Versions.

    I agree that doing a CTRTransfer to 9.2 is possible. I never suggested that anyone should 'disable' B9S. I suggest you read what I actually wrote before accusing me of anything.

    They can't boot into Luma at the moment. That's the issue.

    I don't see how anyone could interpret what I said as a suggestion to disable B9S, but fair enough.

    1. Backup current NAND (what you're doing now)
    2. Download correct file to ctr transfer 9.2
    3. Use either decrypt9 or godmode9 to ctr transfer to 9.2
    4. Try booting (should work now!) Luma3DS
    5. As i said, after booting (only) Luma3DS, your bs9 installation
    is safe and you can update to 11.4 if you want the normal way
    6. Make a backup of your final nand for safety reasons

    Never update without booting Luma3DS first!
