    im bored so I decided to write this
    this tutorial uses a version of GodMode9 that's not the latest because 1.4.2 was the latest when I wrote this, you can grab the latest from github if you want or you can try out my mod (in my sig)

    ntrboot instructions are not included because you can just install b9s with it then follow the have cfw section
    if you have a9lh just update to b9s then follow the have cfw section

    now onto installing the awesome gm9 bootloader!

    no cfw 9.0-11.3

    have cfw (b9s)
    instructions for updating or installing my mod are the same as the have cfw section

    I’ve actually been running GM9 (saltmode,) for weeks now. It’s so much better than standard B9S! Not to mention I can run Rei-Six from my CTRNAND without worrying about losing my payload support!

    So what is this exactly? A chain-loader using gm9?

    What are the benefits of GM9 salt mode?

    No bootsplash and only holding Start to boot to the boot menu.
    It’s easier for a lazy tester like me.

    @Eix It says not running from a bootstrap compatible entry point then it shut down the 3ds when i press A.

    it says to provide aeskeydb.bin file to make it go away.

    Where can i find that file?

    I was able to figure out what folder to put into but I still get that message. The only difference is that when I press A it now boots into rei-six, but I can't use the chain loader.

    are you using GodMode9 or EixMode9?

    I followed your guide for people that already have b9s installed.

    Then I replaced the gm9.firm on root of sd card with rei-six.firm. I renamed the rei-six to boot.firm on root of sd.

    It says that but it doesn't let me go in with r1+ left. I still get the aeskey.bin message even after I placed it I'n the support folder.

    is the aeskeydb.bin 256 byte or 1kb?
    is it GodMode9 made with `make SALTMODE=1`?
    sorry it took so long i was at school

    No worries its cool.

    Where do I get the gm9 saltmode=1 from? I downloaded the latest version of Gm9. Not the one you offered on this thread,

    heres a saltmode build of the latest GodMode9
    it doesnt have the aeskeydb.bin hardcoded because im wouldnt be allowed to post it if it did
    make sure your aeskeydb.bin is 1kb and in 0:gm9/payloads
