    Hello. I tried to load luma3ds by holding select on start up after going through the flipnote thing and installing boot9strap, but nothing is happening. It's just bringing me to my home screen. I've tried updating my system and going back through flipnote, but it just shows that I have nothing there when I get to the end and click the sd card. Please help with this.

    If you did already the flipnote stuff, then there is nothing to do anymore. B9S is installed (of course only if there was no error during the installation). Is a boot.firm in root of your sd card?

    Yeah, boot.firm is there along with boot.3dsx and boot.nds.

    Are you sure you followed the guide to the end and didn't skip any steps? Also, is your Select button working?
    What happens if you hold Start on boot?

    Yes I'm sure I followed the steps completely. My select button works and nothing happens holding start.

    If nothing happens when holding Select OR Start and you normally boot into the Home Menu, then you definitely did something wrong! If you installed b9s, then you can't boot into HM without the boot.firm (Luma or other CFW) being loaded and if that's loaded then Select should have worked, while Start should have worked regardless as long as b9s was installed properly.

    I'll try redoing it and seeing what was wrong. Thanks.

    Nothing happens when you hold START at boot? Godmode9.firm is missing in /luma/payloads. Correct me if i'm wrong. Try to open the rosalina menu with L+Down+SELECT in the home menu. If it doesn't work, you made anything wrong.

    I have godmode9, but nothing is still happening. L+Down+Select doesn't do anything. I think something is wrong with my luma folder because I didn't have one from after installing boot9strap and I moved one over from another sd card.

    1. Remove the SD card from your 3DS.
    2. Turn on the 3DS and immediately press and hold (SELECT) button.
    If your 3DS has custom firmware, it will either

    (A) turn on and then off with a single blue light blink if it does not have CTRNAND Luma3DS.

    -or-

    (B) should open Luma3DS v10.0.1 configuration if it does have CTRNAND Luma3DS.


    However, your 3DS isn't hacked if it will instead

    (C) boot straight to HOME Menu despite having no SD card and holding (SELECT) when turning it on.

    If that doesn't give a definitive result, I'm low-key considering she might have installed a stealth version of Luma, considering she boots into Home even though Luma doesn't show up... Even with SD card, if Luma wasn't loaded it would turn off without booting to Home, but guess we'll have to wait for her test to see:unsure:

    I was thinking her (SELECT) button could be broken or she has atypical fastboot3ds bootloader. Shit, are we overthinking this?

    Maybe, could just be she didn't install it properly and we are overcomplicating things:rofl2: At least it's good to cover all our bases I guess...

    OP, you never said what guide exactly you followed to install CFW. Can you post a link to it? And are you sure you actually installed CFW rather than just get the Homebrew Channel? Those two are different things!

    I used https://3ds.hacks.guide to install it. I managed to get everything to work on a different 3ds and SD card but it was only a 2GB so I needed a bigger one. Turns out I could just transfer the stuff over to the new SD card with the same 3ds.

    I found out my godmode9 payload was corrupted when I tried to move it so I just renamed the payload folder and put a good one in. I got everything working on a different system though, thanks for the help!
