    It could have gotten corrupted. Format it and then place a arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your sd card and it should boot?

    download luma3DS from 3ds.guide, and use another sd card to test with those files

    Between insane and insecure
    This sounds your SD card go corrupt, hopefully that corruption didn't brick your system
    Try downloading the latest Luma3DS either from the guide or from my sticky and booting with another SD card.
    I am going to kibosh this rumor before it spreads any further. Yes, her github was hacked. BUT they didn't replace any of the files. They simply deleted the Luma3DS repo and replace it with old CFW. They didn't add a brick code.

    All the files from the repo were erased, not replaced

    well what is on the sd card? are you in mid process of adding cfw. if not, format your sd (presuming nothing seriously important is there, such as a nand backup) format it, get the lastest luma, and all the files nessesary for your 3ds. if done properly you should have it boot.

    Relax. You haven't bricked, just download the arm9loaderhax.bin and put it on the sd card.
