boot9strap is installed on the system itself, just restore your backup and put the boot.firm from luma3ds.
You also need to reinstall FBI and other necessities, but that's easy too
Nope, you're screwed. Mega bricked. Time to buy another one.
Just kidding with you. You just need the boot.firm from Luma3DS' latest stable release.
As for all the required files, and getting FBI back and stuff.
You'll have to follow the relevant steps of Finalizing Setup from 3DS.Guide: https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup
Very dramatic post. Yep, B9S is nand specific, so just do what others have said and redo (copy) Luma's "boot.firm" to the SD root and fix the rest with the guide (final setup)
Perfect, thank you!
And sorry about the mild drama, I was just very disappointed over what I had done and I did it partially for humorous purposes to feel better about it. Looked at myself in the mirror after it happened and went:
Don't drink and trying to hack your 3DS
I guess you got an heart attack when you noticed what you have done
Nope, it doesn't cover where to put boot.firm. boot.firm just goes on the root of your SD Card.
Here's the latest stable release: https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/latest
You just extract the boot.firm from that, and put it on the root of your SD Card.
As for the section that covered that, it was this: https://3ds.guide/installing-boot9strap-(homebrew-launcher)
The config should be set to “Show NAND or user string in System Settings” - and that's about it.
No need to apologize, we are all guilty of screw up's. I have done some real "Dumb & Dumber" moments with my stuff over the years and looked back and thought "what a dickhead"
if you would like i can copy my micro sd for you and upload it to mega or google drive
you will have everything all set up then

so long as you don't mind some pre existing home-brew that is
Restore your A9LH backup and put boot.firm back on your SD Card.
I guess I can do that, but any reason why? It's a really old back-up from like half a year ago. I didn't think it would help in any way. (I am probably wrong on that.)
Thanks for the suggestion, gonna dig through my storage and look for the USB I kept my backup on.
If you backed up your SD Card then you basically backed up all your games and apps.
Alright, I'll give a try, thanks. I didn't think it would be compatible due to how outdated it was.
Will report back with any success or failure later after I restore it and after I do the finalizing step.
Sorry to double-post, but are there any suggestions as to what I should delete from here now that I've restored my backup?
If I remember correctly... Plailect made us delete some files and/or made suggestions of files that we could delete of our own choosing, but wasn't necessary, when following his old A9LH guide. Trouble is, I forgot which ones needed to be deleted and which ones don't and obviously I don't want all kind of crap cluttered all over.
Thanks in advance.
Delete the A9LH folder, arm9loaderhax.bin, and anything else you don't need.
Okay, so I'm kind of stuck on a step, specifically this one:
"Section III - Launching FBI
Launch the Download Play application
Press (L) + (Down) + (Select) at the same time to open the Rosalina menu <----(I am stuck here)
Select “Miscellaneous options”
Select “Switch the hb. title to the current app.”
Press (B) to continue
Press (B) to return to the Rosalina main menu
Press (B) to exit the Rosalina menu
Press (Home), then close Download Play
Launch the Download Play application
Your device should load the Homebrew Launcher"
The part that I highlighted via bold+underline+italicized. That button combo does not work and nothing happens.
I'm not even sure if I have this Rosalina thing.
Like I said, right before the screw-up, I had successfully upgraded from A9LH to B9S. The finalizing section that Temptress Cerise linked me to seems to mention some stuff that the A9LH to B9S guide did not.
So what am I really supposed to be doing here? Any ideas?
Actually, what would happen if instead of following the finalizing guide, if I instead just followed this all over again since I restored my old backup?
You'd most likely brick.
Hit them all at the same time and Rosalina will open on the lower screen.
I've tried it simultaneously as you suggested and still nothing happens. It just complains about wireless communication being disabled.
I don't get this crap... If I could rewind time, I'd make it so I never accidentally deleted the entire MicroSD card instead of just one folder as I wanted to. Hell, I'd have never tried to do it in FBI.
I'm glad I asked before I ended up bricking it.
