    I got luma and al9h installed. Quite sure I got a backup made. Do I just install it? Never had a brick even though I've updated several times in the past when updates came out

    Between insane and insecure
    What version of Luma3DS are you on and can you still boot into payloads?
    Download the latest Luma3DS to be safe

    Do you remember if you ever updated it? If not, then when did you install it? A year ago?

    its probably not bricked, its more like it that you a a version of luma that is too old for firmware 11.3.

    Check if you can get into hourglass9 or luma settings with start+power and select+ power.

    if that is the case, then download latest luma version from https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases and place the arm9loaderhax.bin from the zip in the root fo your sd
