    Ok so I needed to update my 2ds..I read that I needed to update luma first and I had to update my luma updater which I read on here somewhere that I could do that by installing it's newer cia..so did that..updated luma but then accidentally did it again(it was late)...all seemed well anyway so I updated the system itself..again all seemed well..I proceed to try to update a game(which failed)as soon as it stopped every game and application such as fbi and the like dissapeared...I could still access the rosalina menu and at first gm9...but now can only access gm9 with the sd card out as it says there is a payload error otherwise...what do/can I do to get it back on track? Any help is greatly appreciated

    Re-Check if your SD card is fake, faulty, or dying.
    1. Copy everything off the SD card to a computer.
    2. Quadruple reformat.
    3. Full Write + Verify the empty card in H2testw. Do not skip.

    Your 3DS is not booting with the SD card removed because the version of Luma on the NAND was apparently not updated.

    The 2ds boots up fine and had no problems with the sd up to this point...but i thought i did update the luma by running the luma updater..if not then what now?

    Oh, I misunderstood. You wrote "but now can only access gm9 with the sd card out as it says there is a payload error otherwise", and I thought that meant that with the SD card out you can't access anything but GM9. So, never mind – the copy of Luma on your NAND is probably fine.

    Regardless – maybe you didn't have problems with your SD card before, but it looks like that is what is happening now. So please check your card.

    Fair enough....so If I'm able to check after formatting and it shows as fine...in theory I could reinstall everything and be on my way?

    Isn't there any save data you want to try to recover, at least?

    Sometimes copying everything off the card any copying it back again (after checking for errors) is enough to solve the problem. If not, there are other troubleshooting steps.

    If all else fails, all you need on your SD card is boot.firm, boot.3dsx, and the other things from finalizing-setup.
