    Hello everybody. I have had a 3DS homebrewed for a while via NTRBOOTHAX. I lost my Original SD Card and it won't boot up. I know it won't boot without the proper files, so that's not new. I had the same problem but found the SD Card before, which fixed it. The SD Card is really lost. I have tried adding required files on a new SD Card with no luck. NTRBOOTHAX is already installed, and work. Here are my questions. Do I need the original SD Card, or can I replicate files. (Hardware or files) What can I do if the SD Card isn't found. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I do have moderate homebrew experience, I just need a point to the right direction. Thanks for reading.

    I put the Homebrew Launcher back on, and got the files from the guide, but my 3DS still won't boot. The power button goes on for a second, then off like before.

    Are you sure you have the Luma3ds boot.firm file on the root of your sd card?

    If you used ntrboothax a while ago, your version of boot9stap is most likely too old to boot Luma v9.1. Download Luma v7.1 and place the boot.firm file from Luma v7.1 onto the root of your SD card. Please report back with your results.

    These are all new downloaded files, I will try Luma 3DS 7.1. I think it was using 8 or normal 9 before. And yes, the boot.firm is on the root of the SD Card.

    Have you made sure the card itself was formatted to fat32 with 32kb clusters?

    And, make sure the card is MBR, not GPT.

    Hmm, is it possible your SD card slot in your 3DS died? Nothing you try works.
