    Title, On luma3ds 7.1, b9s 1.0, I checked and I'm following the guide correctly, what could the problem be? When i try to open the chainloader menu, it goes to the home menu and nothing is updated.

    Did you put any .firm files in your luma/payloads folder?

    I have the exact same issue so I hope someone can point out something obvious I'm missing.
    Followed the guide to hack in the first place.
    I updated to B9S by following the guide with zero issues.
    Following the guide to update B9S so I can update luma beyond 7.1 but I'm unable to boot to the chainloader.
    I did some looking around and from what I can tell if I followed the guide I would have moved my luma into CTRNAND\rw\luma, rather than just leaving it on the SD, and sure enough I can see it if I look at it through FBI, but I guess I'm ignorant and I don't really understand how I'm supposed to get at it. I really think I'm just missing something obvious, can someone spell it out for me?

    Alternatively I could have no idea what I'm on about, but luma on CRTNAND and not being able to boot to the chainloader seems to be the common theme when I look into it.

    Alright, so disregard all of that. Spent all shift overthinking the issue. Found the solution literally 5 minutes after posting with further searching.
    This thread over here spells out the "problem" and solution.

    We need a B9S + Luma troubleshooter guide stickied by admin *sigh*

    If there are any .bin files in the luma/payloads folder, it will skip the chainloader. Delete any .bin files in luma/payloads and try again.

    Are you sure? Surely if you are on b9s it will just ignore them?

    Is it possible that newer .firm payloads require B9S 1.2? I know for Luma 8.x it does but will the latest version of GM9 work with B9S 1.0? I have never thought about this until now.
    Also if Luma chainloader is not working it can't find a compatible payload.

    Yes, I had this issue for like 5 mins when changing to B9S from A9LH. Found the solution after looking again at it. B9S doesn't ignore it for some reason.
