    Has it got B9S on it? A9LH?
    You need to inform us if it has CFW on, if it's stock, etc

    If it's CFW'd, you need either arm9loaderhax.bin or boot.firm, if you have A9LH or B9S installed respectively. Recommend getting Luma to at least test.
    If it's not CFW'd... honestly others will know more than I.

    Between insane and insecure
    Please provide more details.
    Entrypoint?
    CFW?
    Did you make sure your have the boot file (boot.firm or arm9loaderhax.bin) in the root of your SD card or on the CTRNAND?
    Did you update your build of B9S?
    Did you update Luma3DS before updating B9S?
