    So I downloaded this because I needed it to randomize(Pokémon sun) it and every time I go to launch Pokémon sun I press select and launch with Hans. I downloaded everything, I hope, I need to use hans and even put it in the the Gridlauncher/folders/ and when I load it it just stays on a *debug screen thing. I did all the stuff according to this guide I am thinking that maybe gridlauncher has something to do with it, and I tried deleting it and it kept coming back. I there a way to delete it or a way to load the game?

    Ok so we have a few problems here. First of all, you need smea's new boot.3dsx from the starter kit plus the new version of hans to run pokemon sun. Secondly, you shouldnt be using hans or that kid's guide. If you get a custom firmware, you can use saltysd, which saves space by letting you only copy tje new files to the sd card. It also is waaaay more convinient than hans, as hans doesnt have the best compatibility. To install a cfw, follow this guide here: 3ds.guide. It is extremely thorough and easy to understand. If you have any questions you can asl here. Just please, do not use a video tutorial to install a cfw as they become outdated super quickly. After you install a cfw, I can teach you how to use saltysd and randmonize sun and moon.

    Try booting the 3ds with an sd card that only has arm9loaderhax.bin on it. Kind of sounds like your homemenu files could be screwing something up. Although your description sounds a little stranger than usual.

    So just like a completely different sd card with just a single file on there?

    Did you try booting your 3ds with just arm9loaderhax.bin on it?

    Strobing colors are a strange problem, and if doing what I suggest doesn't solve it - it's probably a hardware issue. So just do that and report back.

    (Are you still on 2.1 btw?)

    Enter the system settings application. Tell us your firmware version.

    What do you have? New 3ds? Old 3ds or 2DS?

    It's not putting in a picture, but the top screen is strobing yellow and light green. And the bottom is purple and pink

    Are you sure you installed arm9loaderhax?
    Boot with the sdcard in and hold select while you power on the console.

    Easy, if you have arm9loaderhax installed put the sd card INSIDE the console then power it on WHILE HOLDING DOWN THE SELECT BUTTON. If you see luma's menu you have arm9loaderhax installed. If nothing happens then you have not installed it and screwed up in one of the steps.

    Is there a way to get rid of the screen glitch and get my 3ds back to normal?

    Did you ever try what everyone kept telling you where you boot the system with just arm9loaderhax.bin on the sd card?

    Luma can't boot 2.1. You have to use Decrypt9 as an ARM9 payload to perform a ctrtransfer to 9.2. Finish reading the guide. It covers this. Also, never put your 3DS in sleep mode while on 2.1. This will permanently brick it.

    Do what Joom said and boot hourglass9 by holding start, then restore your nand backup.

    sigh.... You haven't finished the guide. Finish the guide. You're still at 2.1.0. You're not supposed to stay there.
