    Hi all.
    I'm hoping to get help with updating B9S 1.0 to 1.2 and Luma3DS 7.1 to 8.1.
    I am following the steps here: https://3ds.guide/updating-b9s
    The problem is, I put SafeB9SInstaller.firm and GodMode9.firm into SD:/luma/payloads and held START while powering on to get the chainloader menu but it only goes straight to GodMode9. I also tried renaming the two firm files to use the older boot method where you held a certain key based on how you renamed it to no avail. I can not get SafeB9SInstaller to boot no matter what I try.

    Since My N3DS can boot without a SD card inserted is it reading the payloads from somewhere else and THAT's where I have to put SafeB9SInstaller.firm?

    Looking for any assistance anyone can offer.

    As a side note, I'm on Firmware 11.3 SysNAND CFW.

    Thanks all!

    Thanks Lacius. You were right on the money. I knew it wasn't loading from SD:/luma/payloads but it's been a few months since installed/updated a CFW 3DS and I forgot the relationship between boot.firm and the CTRNAND setup.

    Thank you again!
