    I was trying to update the luma laucher, as it was still stuck at 7.1, even though the boot.firm file i had was for 9.0
    I saw that there was a boot.firm file in the CTR NAND and though that was the 7.1 one and so i replaced it

    but I'm pretty sure that was not the case now since my 3ds won't turn on anymore, the blue light immediately turns off once it's on

    I haven't been following the 3ds modding scene since I replaced arm9loaderhax with boot9strap, so I forgot how some of it works

    so, uh, any help?

    Sounds like you did only section one of the guide. Did you “Launch Luma3DS chainloader menu by holding (Start) during boot”?

    Were your previous firmware files something like "boot.bin" instead of "boot.firm"?

    I'm pretty sure the file in CTR NAND was boot.firm

    What you can do is download an earlier version of Luma (which supports B9S 1.0), update your B9S from there, and then move on to Luma 9.0. Worked for me when a friend "bricked" his 3DS one night, believing he updated ton B9S 1.2 and put Luma 9.0 on his SD Card :)
