    I haven't played my 3DS for a couple months, but my sister certainly has. Recently, I deleted everything on my 3DS after backing up to install things on my Wii U. Now, today, I have copied them back onto my 3DS and I get a black screen.
    I am running a9lh+Luma.
    I have downloaded the newest version of Luma, but I was met with 2 files that I have no idea what to do with.

    Help would be much appreciated, and I will provide screenshots upon request.

    EDIT:
    I have installed Luma 7.0, although the 3DS is still turning off immediately after being turned on, but now I am seeing the Luma 3DS 7.0 boot up screen for a split second before it turns off. I also noticed that once it turns off, the charger indicator LED turns off as well then turns back on.

    need luma 7.x on the root of your sd with the name arm9loaderhax.bin

    dont use luma 8.0, not compatible with a9lh

    https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s will help with booting the latest version of luma at the very least

    edit: or just use luma 7 that works too
