    Hi everyone,

    A couple hours ago, I was trying to install Arm9loaderhax, everything was going fine, until I had to remove the sd card. I always turn off the console before removing, but I didn't this time, I received the message saying I should always power off the console before removing the sd card, I approved, powered off the console and moved on into transferring files I needed to from my computer to the sd card, I inserted the card back in but the 3ds won't turn on, all I get is the blue power button light turn on for 2/3 seconds then goes off, the screens won't flicker or anything, I feel lost and don't know what I'm supposed to do. Thank you in advance.

    Put the luma3ds arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of your sd card, if you haven't yet

    Thank you very much, just did what you suggested and the 3ds came back to life, I thought it was never going to work again, thank you again.
