    So I got HBL installed, and it seems to have gone fine. If i boot without the SD card, it seems that goes straight to the regular 3ds menu. If I boot with the SD card in, it goes to the Luma3ds configuration screen.

    Do I always go to this screen on bootup? The card I have now is a 4gb card, but I am in the process of formatting a 128GB card in FAT32. Is there a tutorial to transfer the one microSD card to another? I have no saved/purchased games on either card. I just bought 4 Zelda cards and am going to start playing them.

    No you don't always go to that screen on boot. Select your settings then press Start to save them. As a test, turn off your system and turn it back on w/SD card inserted. Do you still boot to the Luma3DS config screen?

    Now that you have a9lh, make sure that the 128 GB is formatted to FAT32 (as you said you were) and then just move the files from the 4 to the 128. It's that simple.

    What settings should I use?

    Besides the carts I bought, I mostly want to play SNES games (maybe GBA games, I never owned a GBA).

    The same settings that 3ds.guide told you to use.

    Look up the Ultimate GBA VC Injector (if you don't care about cheat codes) and the Ultimate SNES VC Injector in the ROM Hacking section by asdolo.

    They're not emulators, btw. They're programs that can turn ROMs of games from those systems (and many more systems) into CIAs you can install, without the need of using an emulator. They're two separate programs.

    Oh, ok. Never knew they did that. That is actually impressive that they made a converter.

    U are aware, of course, that vc is an emulator, right?

    For the op- about snes, the thungs the one above me suggested for snes only good if you oun new3ds (the one with the 4 shoulder buttons, not 2). If you dont own a new3ds use snes9x (google it!) Also I might have misspelled it... thats a conventional emulator- install it's cia and place roms on sd, then open them from within the emulator...

    Ah and about saves- uf you format it you lose wverytging you purchased on it (call nintendo if any problems arise). Transferring from one sd card to a new emty one is easy- if they are both fat32 just copy paste everything to the new card... if one of em got some games you wanna keep and they both on the same nnud use system transfer (google it) and youre good...

    I know that VC is an emulator. I was saying the programs that made the VC inject CIAs aren't emulators.

    Thanks for the help. I transferred the contents of the 4GB MicroSD card to the 128GB. Now, though it doesn't have the option to boot into FBI or Luma3DS used to be on the far right, but no longer is. What is wrong, why isn't it loading?

    Firmware is 11.2.0-35U
