    Hello! I've pretty much spent this whole day trying to resolve this issue, but couldn't.
    I just finished installing arm9loaderhax with the Plailect guide. I have an R4i-sdhc 3DS flashcard, it looks like this:
    photo of my r4i sdhc 3ds card
    and another old r4 card like this:
    photo of my old r4 flashcard


    I've installed the TWL_FIRM cia (from AuroraWright), didn't work. Then I tried the TWL slot 1 launcher from Apache Thunder, it says "An error has occured.", then I tried 4 different launchers from this thread, all of them stuck on loading screen.
    I use a 8GB SD card formatted to FAT32, and installed pretty much every kernel there is. Here's a screenshot of what's on my card:

    Please, help me guys. Does anyone have any idea what I missed or what I did wrong? Any advices to solve this problem?
    If you need any other details I haven't provided just reply and I'll gladly share them.
    Thank you!!!

    You have multiple launchers/menus?

    Well, I have a home menu and the homebrew launcher. What I meant by 4 different launchers is 4 different Slot 1 launchers.

    Try uninstalling that TWL_FIRM CIA. I didn't have to make any mods to be able to use an R4i just like yours. Also are you on Luma3DS?

    Try installing Whitelist.cia, and using TW Slot Launcher from ApacheThunder, also verify, that your flashcard, has the correct files/kernel on the micro sd, i got that flashcard, the one with the Green 3ds logo, works without issue.

    First of all, yes I am on Luma3DS.
    What happened since: I found a guide with a Whitelist.cia, installed the Whitelist and the TWL_FIRM that the guide told me to install. When I used the TW Slot launcher, it gave me a black screen (until this point I only got errors, no black screens). The guide said that this TWL_Firm doesnt work with Luma3DS 5.4+ (probably the source of the black screen). I reinstalled the old TWL_FIRM that I used before, got the error again. Problem is I have no idea how to uninstall the TWL_FIRM CIA. :/
    Anyway, I think the missing whitelist was the problem :D I'll find a way to uninstall the cia and update you on it. Thank you!!! :D

    Update: I found the TWL_FIRM's Title ID in FBI (00040013800000102). Should I just DELETE it? Does it delete the whole TWL_FIRM thing from my 3ds or only the stupid stuff I installed?

    I went ahead and deleted it, now I'm getting a black screen again.
    Sorry about the REALLY stupid question, but what's NUS? :(

    Update:

    Well I deleted it (prior to you posting "Dont.")
    It didn't brick.

    Because it will definitely brick it.

    The NUS is the Nintendo Update server and use this to download from it https://gbatemp.net/threads/3dnus-mod-by-dr-hacknik.392360/ put in the title id of the twl firm and pack it as a cia and install it with fbi.

    I have an r4 revolution card just like the one in the picture working. You need to get rid of any whitelist /twl patches you have installed. Then take the proper stage 2 launcher cia and install. Take the proper flashcard firm and put it on the sd card for your flashcart. Looking at your sd card structure I do not think that having multiple firmware on your sd card is going to be helpful for making this work....

    Wouldn't it be easier to just restore the backup from my sysNAND_A9loaderhax.bin file? That would reroll me to before I installed any whitelist or TWP patches right?

    So I restored my system from sysNAND_A9LHAX.bin, still getting the same error with the slot 1 launcher, still stuck on loading with the Stage 2 launchers. :/
