This is an add-on section to check if your console already has a modern custom firmware.
If your console already has an arm9loaderhax or boot9strap based custom firmware, you will need to follow the instructions indicated to upgrade your setup to a modern one.
If your console has a menuhax based CFW setup, you should clear HOME Menu’s extdata, then follow all instructions on your SysNAND.
- Turn off your console
- Hold the (Select) button
- Turn on your console while still holding the (Select) button
- You should now see a configuration menu of some sort
What to do next
If your console boots to the normal HOME Menu, return to Get Started
If you see a Luma3DS version of 7.0.5 or lower, continue to A9LH to B9S
If you see a Luma3DS version of 7.1, continue to Updating B9S
If you see a Luma3DS version of 8.0 or greater, continue to Restoring / Updating CFW
If you see something not described by the above options, join Nintendo Homebrew on Discord and ask, in English, for help.
