Instructions

Section I - Launching SafeB9SInstaller

  1. Launch udsploit from the list of homebrew
  2. Once you see patching kernel... done, press (Start) to exit udsploit
    • This may take several tries
    • If it freezes, just force the console to power off by holding the power button, then try again
  3. Launch safehax from the list of homebrew
    • If you get a “PM INIT FAILED” error, make sure you ran udsploit with Wireless Communication turned on
    • If you still get a “PM INIT FAILED” error, try using the r19 release of safehax
    • If it freezes, just force the console to power off by holding the power button, then try again
  4. If the exploit was successful, you will have booted into SafeB9SInstaller

Section II - Installing boot9strap

  1. When prompted, input the key combo given on the top screen to install boot9strap
  2. Once it is complete, press (A) to reboot your device

Section III - Configuring Luma3DS

  1. Your device should have rebooted into the Luma3DS configuration menu
  2. Use the (A) button and the D-Pad to turn on the following:
    • “Show NAND or user string in System Settings”
  3. Press (Start) to save and reboot
    • If you get an error, just continue to the next page

At this point, your console will boot to Luma3DS by default as long as the SD card is inserted.

  • Luma3DS does not look any different from the normal HOME Menu. If your console has booted into the HOME Menu, it is running custom firmware.
  • On the next page, you will copy Luma3DS to internal memory so that you can boot without an SD card.
