    Hey, haven't booted up 3ds until lately and just updated to 11.4, but all I'm getting is a black screen. I can still boot into two menus (emu/sys backup/restore, and Luma config). Hopefully someone can please help. I can add more details if needed.

    Not sure which version but Luma and A9LH are installed.

    Update Luma to v7.0.1 by replacing the arm9loaderhax.bin file on the root of your SD card with the one in the 7.0.1 7z file.

    Are you able to boot into Luma by holding select and powering the system?

    Yeah I can still boot with start and select but I can't go anywhere from there. I should have the files replaced soon if that's all that needs to be done.

    That should be all you need to do.

    Thank you very much, just loaded up fine =) Just as a heads up, although I haven't used my 3ds in a while, but would it be recommended to regularly update CFW?

    I recommend downloading and installing LumaUpdate, if you haven't already and keep an eye on the Luma3DS thread for new Luma releases. When a new Luma update drops, you can use this download the latest version or switch to one of the hourly versions if you have to for whatever reason. It saves you from having to do it manually.
