    Hey everyone, so today I used Luma's Updater to get the latest stable version of Luma 3DS. However, when I did this, my 3DS couldn't load any of my Smash mods anymore. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thanks~

    What settings do you have selected in Luma and how are you running the Smash mods?

    right now I have these turned on: Autoboost SysNAND, Enable loading external FIRMs and modules, Use custom path, Enable game patching, and Patch SVC/service/archive/ARM9 access.
    Basically what I did was I turned on everything that I thought I turned on before and crossed my fingers. (never claimed to be an expert)

    I don't remember what I had enabled before that let me run Smash mods, and the tutorial I used got taken down. I use SaltySD to run my mods.

    Inside of your SaltySD folder should be a folder that holds the modified files. Move the contents inside of that folder to luma/titles/TITLEID/romfs.

    Replace TITLEID with Smash's title ID. You don't need Patch svc enabled.

    Then try again.

    Here are some pictures showing the process I did. Did I miss something? (I also disabled Patch SVC)

    Move those to the romfs folder and delete the smash folder. Think of the romfs folder as the smash folder for saltysd. What are the card and select files?

    Try just moving the file(s) from /luma/code_sections to /luma/titles/{titleid}/. Be sure to replace titleid with the appropriate titleid for your region. If there are multiple files, rename the file that has the aforementioned titleid in its name to "code.bin". If there's only one file, rename that to "code.bin".

    The reason LayeredFS isn't working AFAIK is because SaltySD patches the dt and ls files; it's not a simple RomFS patch; it patches the contents of these two files in the RomFS as well.

    tbh, i'm not entirely sure, when I open them they just display a number and nothing else. I didn't even create them.

    Here's a screenshot of what my folders look like so far, still doesn't work:

    Move the romfs/ folder back to saltysd/ and rename it /smash. There's no need for LayeredFS to patch any files in the RomFS; SaltySD does that already.

    So, the mods should be contained in:

    Code:
    /saltysd/smash/
    
    while the code.bin should remain where it is. It is the code.bin with SaltySD patched, right?

    That won't work unless he packs the dt/ls files and puts them in luma/titles/TITLEID/romfs.
    SaltySD uses extracted dt/ls files which is much simpler for modding but Luma only redirects RomFS R/W so it requires them to be packed.

    Yes, that was what I was trying to say. That's why the romfs folder in /luma/titles/{titleid} needs to be deleted. It's also why simply moving the saltysd/smash folder to /luma/titles/{titleid}/romfs won't work.

    ok this may not work for you but it works for me. Try using smash selector.
    (note: this may not work for you)

    Smash Selector is out dated.
