    So, I updated A9LH using https://3ds.guide/updating-a9lh

    Everything went without a hitch. It was updated.. 3DS powered down. Went to restart and load up Luma and was greeted to a black screen. No power+button commands seem to be working.

    3DS immediately powers off when turned on without SD. Thoughts?

    EDIT: N3DS btw

    Followed https://3ds.guide/troubleshooting and I'm still stuck.

    Do you have a nand backup

    Edit: if you dont and can load payloads then you might be able to restore it

    Worst case scenario is you corrupted FIRM

    Cannot load payloads. Nand was lost on reformat. I think I'm boned. Is there any way at all to recover it?

    Replace the Luma arm9loaderhax.bin with a newly downloaded one. If the blue light stays on in means the the arm9loaderhax.bin is corrupted.

    Sounds like you corrupted FIRM0/1. If you have a NAND Backup (preferably one that has A9LH on it) you can restore it with hardmod

    How could updating A9LH corrupt a file on the SD?

    If it doesn't work then theyr'es a few possible problems:
    1: SD corrupted
    2: Arm9loaderhax.bin corrupted
    3: worst case scenario: FIRM0/1 or even bootrom corrupted

    What do you mean the luma one? The one that was renamed or the one in my root?

    Firm 0/1 and bootrom are not corrupt. Arm9loaderhax is working as it should seeing as the system shuts down without a SD card.

    The Luma one. Download a new one and make sure it is on the root of your SD card and named arm9loaderhax.bin.

    Boots to SafeA9LHInstaller and that's it but woo. Should I recover my payload files and try reinstalling?

    Worst case scenario would be a nuclear missile strike, but there is no evidence to support it. Much like your corrupted firm theory.
