    I've seen that external firmware.bin are blocked, but it's been awhile since I screwed around with my 3DS, would this be the cause as that I can see the splash screen fine and get into Hourglass, but it just stays black.

    Removing the SD Card works, and then putting it back in just brings the games back, can run them just fine. But starting the 3DS with SD Card in keeps it at a black screen....

    are you running luma? get the latest luma, extract the arm9loaderhax.bin to the root of your sd card, and boot your 3ds.

    I was running an older version before, but used the Luma Updater and it worked fine, but didn't help, attempted to try anyway and used the Github version directly, nothing.

    Could ShadowNAND be the issue?

    if the arm9loaderhax.bin on your ctr nand is the issue, then restoring an older nand.bin from before you copied it to the ctrnand should fix the issue. Can you boot hourglass9?

    I can, though I it's been awhile so forgive me for the "noob" question, would restoring an older NAND remove games that were installed after the fact? And can't seem to find any ways to remove ShadowNAND ~_~

    You should be able to dump your tickets from this current nand, and reinject them into your older one. Which I think should allow you to keep your installed games.

    To be safe, make a backup of your 11.3 nand before you do anything.

    Yup, though I vaguely remember FBI having some sort of Dump tickets feature? If not then tik2sd...

    None of any of this has anything to do with the black screen. What happened is you're using a custom nfirm, and 11.3 prevents the use of external nfirm loading. Just delete firmware.bin in the luma folder or disable external nfirm loading in the luma config.
     
    Quantumcat, BL4Z3D247 and x65943 like this.

    I feel like that would be the problem, except, deleting firmware.bin merely freezes the screen at the splash image, and by the luma config you mean the one placed at /luma/yukara.ini? It is already directing the default to /luma/arm9loaderhax.bin

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Umm why restore nand? Just boot godmode 9 and replace the a9lh luma on NAND with the most recent one.

    Just cause it's been awhile since I've done so, could you link to a guide?

    You have a9lh already right?

    • Download god mode 9 from d0k3 github page. (Same place you get hourglass9 and decrypt9 from)
    • Rename the arm9loaderhax.bin file to have a button in the title. (For example "Left_Godmode9.bin)
    • Put the fiile in the luma/payloads folder on the sd card.
    • Insert Sd card into 3ds, hold left and turn power on.
    • You should have loaded godmode9.
    • Select the SD browser option, and loacte the Latest build of luma (Should be on root named "arm9loaderhax.bin)
    • Press the copy option (Should be y button.)
    • Back out to main menu and select ctrnand
    • there should be a arm9loaderhax.bin in this directory already if you had SD Less booting before hand set up. Simply past the copied file on clipboard.
    • After paste is done, you updated the CTRNAND LUMA file. (NOTE YOU MUST DO THIS EVERY TIME A NEW UPDATE FOR LUMA IS AVAILABLE)
    That is how you do it. Usually you would use FBI installer from system menu but only if you can access it. :P
