Hey guys,

So my friend installed Luma and stuff on New 3DS XL a few years ago in High School. However, I’m trying to update it with 3DS hacks guide but when I boot holding SELECT it goes to the Home Menu. The root of the SD card is pretty messy and I’m not what he initially used to hack my 3DS, but I’m on 11.05 and am not sure if I should update my 3DS to reinstall Luma as that might brick it. In high school I was able to load .CIA’s and make my own theme, and use all the homebrew applications.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Thank you!

Update: The system software was on 9, so I used the sound hack to load Luma. After doing this and then using Godmode to update to B9S, I got the dreaded ARM11 screen. In the Luma settings turning the option to disable the ARM11 problem results in just a black screen when booting. Any help?

Dude, just go back into Luma's settings and turn Arm11 exception handling back on. Turning that off doesn't make errors magically go away, it'll just make Luma not display *why* it crashed. Now, which version of Luma are you on, and can you get into GodMode9? (Hold START) Do you have an NTRBoot compatible flashcart?

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

If you can't get into GM9, check your SD card and make sure GM9 is on there. It should be at SD root:/luma/payloads.

Thanks for the reply, however I did sort it out yesterday! I was on the latest GM9, Luma, and software. The problem was having more than one file in /luma/payload.

I realised my 3DS has emuNAND and sysNAND running, is there any way to merge my emuNAND account to my sysNAND and then maybe delete the emunand partition to free up space? Or even just delete the emuNAND partition without losing any data in the sysNAND?

Thank you!

There is a moving your emunand to sysnand on the guide. please read https://3ds.hacks.guide/move-emunand about how to do so.

Please backup everything you care about before doing this. it will take out the sysnand items to. so please get everything you need.

That's weird, usually you can have multiple payloads in that folder..

Depends if you have REDnand or emunand, there should be 2 folders on SD:/3DS folder, and if you have only one it means that your system nand and emunand are merged together. Either way, backup you saves with Checkpoint and SD card files just in case.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
