    Hi so i haven't really pulled out my hacked 3DS in a while, but I wanted to install Luma3DS on it.
    I have no idea what it's called but I have it set to load the homebrew channel when I hold L while booting, and I've followed instructions on the luma3DS website, but when I try to boot it from the homebrew channel it says there was an error loading the payload.
    I am seeing some stuff about needing to be below 9.2, my 3DS is an old 3DS on 9.5.0-22E, so I wonder if that's the problem, and if so how d I downgrade it?
    Otherwise, there seem to be all these ~hax methods, i don't understand them at all but ARM9loaderhax (i think?) seems like it might work better for loading it?
    Sorry for my noobness haha!
    (Oh also - i have a physical pokemon sun cart - how can i play it without updating firmware? thanks!)
