    Hey I tried installing the newest Luma together with a boot manager on my o3ds and for some reason I keep getting a black screen and it doesn't boot, even after setting the custom path. I downgraded to version 6.3.1 and now it works fine, but I don't feel safe with an old version. Is this a known bug and has anyone any clue how to fix? Tried both manually updating and luma updater.

    when you say it boots to a black screen, can you get into the luma menu? (hold select when loading)

    Missed 6.5? Here's what you need to note from 6.5 onwards, meaning latest 6.6 included.

    ***
    Please note that starting with this release, Luma won't support pre-patched FIRMs or other system titles with the same patches Luma does. Common pre-patched titles include NS, Home Menu, TWL_FIRM and AGB_FIRM (in these cases you will either get a svcBreak in loader or a shutdown when launching DS/GBA games). Clean versions of these titles need to be reinstalled before upgrading (the wiki will be updated with a walkthrough soon™).
