    For anyone who somehow doesn't know what SigHax is, it is the new a9lh. It grates total control of a 3ds system. Also installing CFW on 11.4 can be done now through ether a hard mod or DSIware.

    To update to SigHax: https://3ds.guide/updating-to-boot9strap
    To install CFW: https://3ds.guide/

    But are you willing to dig for it? It's perfectly possible.

    Is there any advantage of having sighax over a9lh?
    Should we update to sighax instead of a9lh?

    Followed Plailect's arm9loaderhax update guide till Section II Step 4. I got a message saying something like boot9strap installed successfully and told me to press A to continue. I did, but the device did not reboot. It just powered down. If I press the power on button, the blue LED flashes for a second and it powers down again. Possible brick?

    I thought it was safe because it was officially released. Oh well, haven't used the 3DS in months. Won't miss it much.

    Do you have boot.firm on the root of your SD card?

    The bricks seem to be from Derriks installer.. 3ds.guide hasn't produced bricks (that I've seen).

    If sighax installed bad, you'd get a blue screen. Sounds like you forgot to put a firm payload on SD.

    Confirmed issue when I rushed installing on 2DS, have to make sure the Luma file boot.firm is copied to the SD card root.

    So I successfully installed sighax on my N3DS but whenever I try the combination (START+SELECT+X) at boot to dump the bootroms as stated in the guide, it just boots to luma configuration.

    Check your boot9strap folder to see if the files were dumped, such as otp. It's supposed to take you to the config menu since part of the combo was holding start. There's no dialog or any message indicating that the button combo worked, only by checking the boot9strap folder.
