    So I have a custom firmware running on my 3DS for quite some time now.
    I followed Plailect Guide before it moved to the propietary 3DS-GUIDE, and using Browserhax, I never "upgraded" my CFW, so my 3DS does not turn on without an SD Card plugged on, and I know this is not needed anymore, but still didn't try updating anyting.
    My CFW is A9LH, with LUMA 5.5 running on it.
    So today I was playing the new Monster Hunter XX Demo, and I was taken to the e-shop, and asked to do a system update, I did, and when the 3DS restarted it was stuck on a black screen.
    If I boot the system up while holding Select I can boot into Luma config screen, I tried booting into other payloads but was unsuccessful.

    I do not have a recent backup of the SD, so I'm quite desperate... Did I lose my console? Is there something I can do? Any help will be appreciated, I'm really desperate. Thanks in Advance everyone.

    Update Luma to latest stable at least: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases

    You can also look for nightly builds, some people host them.

    Hello, I would try updating Luma3DS.
    Download the latest version of Luma below.
    https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v6.6
    Simply drag and drop the "arm9loaderhax.bin" file from the archive you downloaded to the root of your SD card. Override the file that is already there.

    Thanks a lot to Both of you, this solved the problem, going to set up LumaUpdater so this doesn't happen anymore.

    Surprised you didn't install LumaUpdater originally, as it's highly recommended near the end where you're injecting FBI n stuff...basically at the clean up point.

    In earlier versions of the guide, LumaUpdater didn't exist/wasn't included.

    I decided to point it out, I installed my CFW on 11.2 so there's some things I may not know.
