    Are you using B9S, or are you using A9LH?

    It is likely that you haven't updated to B9S 1.2. Luma3DS 8.0 requires B9S 1.2 to work. If you want to troubleshoot, download the Luma3DS 7.1 boot.firm here and replace the one on your SD card with it. If it works, then I'm correct.

    If you want to update B9S to 1.2 so it will work with Luma3DS 8.0, follow this guide.

    Yes, copy boot.firm to the SD card, replacing the one already there.

    You can remain on Luma3DS 7.1 indefinitely.

    If you want to update to Luma3DS 8.0 or any newer versions of Luma3DS that come out, you need to update to B9S 1.2 following the guide I linked to.
