    So installed B9S via flashcard and DS profile but when I boot now I get this error from Luma:

    An error has occurred:
    Failed to get Process9 data.
    Press any button to shutdown.

    What should I do now?

    What firmware were you running prior to installing B9S?

    I'm not sure, but it could be because Luma doesn't support that old of a firmware.

    You may need to perform a CTRNAND transfer to 9.2: https://3ds.guide/9.2.0-ctrtransfer

    Alternatively, see if you can enter recovery mode (Dpad Up+L+R+A on boot) and try updating with that instead.

    Are you following the guide? http://3ds.guide/

    The step you want would be this one:

    14. If your device is on a version between 3.0.0 and 4.5.0 (inclusive), your device will not boot until you manually download the required firmware

    I will try this but do I have b9s installed after that or will it be lost?

    I've already done this before because I got an error. But after this I got the error that my 3DS can not find the process9 data.

    You'll keep b9s after the 9.2 ctrnand transfer. If you went the Recovery Update route, you'd still keep b9s.

    I tried it using the recovery mode but it won't let me in. I only get the error message.

    I don't exactly know what to do. I have an 3DS XL which has Luma and b9s on it should I transfer everything to my normal 3DS via Decrypt9?

    Have you checked out the link I've provided? https://3ds.guide/9.2.0-ctrtransfer

    If there's a particular step confusing you, please let me know so I can clarify anything.

    I found an old SD from my 3DS XL with A9LH and put B9S on it. Then I put it in my normal 3DS and it worked. But thanks for your help.
