    Hi, I'm having a problem, well more of an inconvenient nuisance but it shouldn't happen.

    I recently started playing my N3DS after a while of not playing it, ran Homebr3w to update a bunch of apps (Mostly emulators) and upgraded Luma to 6.6-f03e232b (I think it was an hourly) using Star Updater.

    Now when I boot, it'll only load to the main menu only about 20% of the time, the rest of the time leaving a blank screen. This also applies going in and out the settings menu.

    A9LH is still working, as the splash animation loads and I can access the boot menu for Arm9 apps after holding L+R. The problem seems to be it loading Luma to start the firmware.

    Besides the boot, when it does there doesn't appear to be any other problems. Games/homebrew load etc. It just won't boot most the time.

    I'm on 11.2.0.35E if that matters.

    Try using LumaUpdater, and update to a stable.

    Star Updater is discontinued and no longer supported or maintained by its author. Download/Update Luma manually and switch to Luma Updater if you want to use a 3DS app to update.
