hey guys, im trying to install A9LH on my sisters O3DS
i followed the latest version of Plailect guide, i started on 8.1
i got up to part 3 when i restore my nand backup, then deleted the 0000008f folder and just get a black screen.
i made sure i DO NOT have a firmware.bin file in the luma folder
i am still able to boot into D9, I also tried the test arm9loaderhax.bin and pressed "A" and the system does power down, so i know it is not bricked.
i reread the guide and i followed everything correctly (to my knowledge) but still cant get it to boot.
any ideas to point me in the correct direction to get this thing booting would be much appreciated

Try booting with the SD card taken out.

Could you try moving the Nintendo 3DS folder onto your PC from the SD (thus deleting it from the latter), then booting with the card inserted?

Yes, I know but if he was in 8.1.0-X delete it don"t do much, because only New 3DS Japan 8.1.0-0 Firmware have themes, mostly I don"t read the guide you said so I don"t know why it is done and I only was curious to know the reason really.

    This time it's a "budget phone" that costs $99... on a Cyber Monday sale... if you sign a two year contract with the provider... only in America. It's $600 everywhere else.

    Well, can't you just select 'Don't recommend channel' so that YT wouldn't keep recommending them?

    Because it's not just one channel doing it.
