    So my 3DS was working fine till now.
    I'm on 11.3 A9LH, and I installed Pokemon Sun on Freeshop and then turned off my 3ds. Then I downloaded a no outline patch and just put it on my SD Card.
    Whenever I try boot it up, there's just a black screen. I can't run Decrypt9, Godmode9 or go into the Luma settings.
    I've tried replacing my arm9loaderhax.bin with the newest nightly and the newest stable and none work. I've also tried deleting my luma folder. What should I do?

    Just checked with CMD and it doesnt have any problems.
    I've tried copying the SD to another folder, formatting the SD and pasting it back again to no avail
    I have no clue whats wrong with it :/

    Try deleting the config.bin and download a fresh arm9loaderhax.bin

    So it was literally just a case of the 3DS not reading the sd card
    I blew on it and it worked.
    I feel so stupid ;-;

    For future safety use the latest version of a9lh and have a copy of luma's arm9loaderhax.bin in nand so that the system will still boot even if SD card or slot breaks.
