    So I opened up Luma updater on my 3DS and it said "New hourly version available" or something like that, so i selected the update hourly option and after it was done, my 3DS turned off. Now every time I try to power it on, the blue led flashes for about a second and then turns back off. Is there anything that could be done about this ?

    Delete the payload (bin or firm) depending if its a9lh or B9S and restore you're previous payload that it backs up (rename it) or just download a fresh one on the PC. No need to use nightlies, just use the stable releases

    Hell
    Try to remove the SD Card and power on your 3DS
    If it still shows a black screen then it's either because you don't have A9LH/b9s on the CTRNAND or because something messed up somehow and you neec to recover a previously backed up NAND

    Could you elaborate on this please? How exactly do I go about doing this ? ( my luma/payloads/ folder contains more than one file that i was using to chainload) I'm using B9S by the way.

    I already tried that, still the same thing. The blue power light flashes for a second and then turns off. I do remember creating a backup at the time of setting up Luma + B9S...

    I just simply redownloaded the latest Luma and replaced the Boot.firm file. Works now.
    Thank you for the help though. :)

    Same thing happened to me and did not have time to report bug
    easy fix
    on SD card delete boot.firm
    rename boot.firm.bak to boot.firm

    don't forget this else you will have a corrupt luma in ctrnand:
    copy the boot.firm to CTRNAND with GOdmode or FBI
