    Every time I exit a GBA game and then power off, my 3DS hangs, and I have to hold the power button to shut it off. Is there any way around this?

    Are you using BootAnim9 or something else as the arm9loaderhax.bin file?

    I'm using the latest noscreeninit arm9loaderhax.bin file that user Michierusama posted.

    Probably unstable.

    Oh. So only the latest noscreeninit version of arm9loaderhax has this problem? The main arm9loaderhax doesn't suffer from power errors when exiting a GBA rom?

    Can anyone else shed any light on this problem? Does anyone else know more about having to force a 3DS to power off after exiting a GBA .CIA?

    Gambia, The
    Did you have the problems before you switch to the new arm9loaderhax.bin?
    Did you try another arm9loaderhax.bin to verify that it happenes with all of them?

    This is the first time I've played a GBA game using Luma3DS. I don't want to switch to an older arm9loaderhax.bin file. If it's just some sort of error because of the version I'm using, I'll just stick with it until it gets corrected in a future version. It's only a small annoyance to have to hard reset the 3DS. I was just thinking there could be a quick fix.

    I'am not sure if there is a "quick fix" because there are not enough informations.
    But anyway.
    You are using Luma3DS so what did you choose in the configuration?
    (press select before start to get into the menu!)
    A picture would be nice!

    P.S. much better try this one please : http://astronautlevel2.github.io/Luma3DS/builds/Luma-afc6f51.zip

    The link you supplied is what I am using.

    Here are my Luma3DS v5.4 Configuration menu settings:

    Screen-init brightness: 1
    New 3DS CPU Clock+L2

    Autoboot SysNAND
    SysNAND is updated (A9LH-only)
    Force A9LH detection
    Show current NAND in System Settings
    Show GBA boot screen in patched AGB_FIRM
    Enable splash screen with no screen-init
