    Hi there, i want to update my luma 3ds, i already have installed star updater, in this program show me the version 6.5 of luma, but when i enter configuration on press select, luma menus shows 6.1.
    Iam using menuhax luma 3ds, this is the right way to update luma (star updater)?
    Thanks

    It is but, you can also update - and if you are having those errors as you said I suggest you do - using the .bin file on Luma3ds github. You only have to get the arm9loaderhax.bin and put it into your SD root.

    Don't use Star Updater; it's outdated and probably no longer supported. Use Luma Updater instead. Alternatively, you can manually update it by downloading the appropriate file from the Luma3DS github releases page.

    I tried it manually, download files from github, and paste in sd root, arm.bin
    and boot.3ds, but the luma continued on 6.1.1?
    I transferred the files with ftp db

    the boot.3ds is not necessary anymore, actually, a lot of the files aren't. It stayed as 6.1.1? oO

    Let's see the reason then. Do you use a9lh? Menuhax or any other hax? or System Settings hacks? (PS: To get into Luma cfw)

    yes, but that is how a9lh also works with Luma, difference being you don't need that boot.3dsx on the root of the sd. I think your luma is using some other file from itself as well, otherwise it wouldn't do 6.1 boot from what you said you changed. Try backing up to your pc and removing from your sd the luma folder and if there is anything luma conserned inside the 3ds folder. See if that boots, case it doesnt try putting one back, one at a time, and let's see which one is the cause. Also, if there is Luma3DS.dat or Luma3DS.nds on the root, take it out.

    Alright, so you aren't using menuhax luma. It's either the System Settings or browserhax luma. Put the 6.6 .dat from mset-spider in your root and you should have it updated :)

    luma3ds.dat from mset-spider folder? If so, get the .nds from mset and put on root as well, if that works, you are using the System Settings version, then you just need the .nds and the .dat everytime you update.

    does it get you a black screen? If so, did you ever patch home menu or ns module?

    EDIT: In case it does and you did that, check here for the answer:
    https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/wiki/FAQ-and-troubleshooting - I get a black screen on boot. It contains the files and a step by step on how to do it.

    define infinity loop boot. Just a black screen or what? Tried to click Select first? If so, put the Dev options on, before looping it should give you an error to pinpoint what's going on.
