    Hi guys,

    So here is my problem, i haven't used my 3ds in 1 year or so and I wanted to get back into playing some games, but the issue is that when i press the on button, the screen is just black.
    I have the sighax and luma but not sure which version, what should i do?

    I've tried pressing the select button before the power button but nothing happens

    Does the blue led fade off after powering on the 3ds? If so, it means that the boot.firm is missing in the root of your sd card.

    Well, I dont know what I did, but the 3ds works now WITH the sd on but there is a message that says that the 3ds cant access the sd card.

    Also, what should i do with my version of luma? (I think its the 8.1v

    you should update luma to 9.1 version because its not compatible with 11.8 if u updated will explain why maybe so try it
    dont take this too badly but maybe be concerned of the sd card that message might mean its corrupted. what make and size is it and where did u buy the card from?

    what version of 3ds have you got currently?
    its safe to update you can choose not to update - but if you update you cant access online
    to update boot9strap follow this https://3ds.hacks.guide/updating-b9s.html

    its recommended you update boot9strap before updating the 3ds version.
