    I recently downgraded one of my old systems to 2.1 to get the OTP and use Arm9LoaderHax. I was able to restore my sysNAND from my backup, but when I went into HBL to boot EmuNAND9 to then restore my emuNAND backup, It first flashes a red screen, hangs for a second, flashes another red screen, and then kicks me back to the HB Menu. Booting Decrypt9 also does the same thing. I also cannot boot into any sysUpdater of any sort, like sysUpdater to downgrade <=10.7, or PlaiSysUpdater.

    If anyone has this same or similar problem, please reply if you have any suggestions of what I can do to fix this. Thanks!

    Is your sysNAND above 9.2? I think Decrypt9 doesn't support FIRMs above 9.2. Although now that you have arm9loaderhax ready, you could set up AuReiNAND, and then use the Decrypt9 A9LH payload instead. This should work at bootup.

    if sysnand is 9.3 or above, use a9lh version emunand9 instead. or able the "force a9lh detection" in aureinand option if you are on 9.0-9.2

    Nvm. got it to work. I temporarily renamed my arm9loaderhax.bin file to something else and used the Decrypt9.bin file for A9LH to restore my emuNAND. Close this thread please. :) Man I feel soooo stupid now. xD I spent a few hours trying to get it to work & stayed up past 2AM figuring this crap out. lol

    If anyone gets a sysNAND or emuNAND brick, read this. :P It should help for softbricks. Idk for hardware bricks.

    you don't have to do that. aureinand has the chainloading function
    please use the newest version

    • Updated the built-in payload chainloader to handle multiple payloads. This was inspired by Fix94's arm9select. Create a "payloads" directory inside the rei folder, put a "default.bin" inside (rename your existing arm9payload.bin if you have one), and (optionally) these other payloads: b.bin, x.bin, y.bin, select.bin, start.bin, right.bin, left.bin, up.bin, down.bin (press the matching button together with L and R to load the payload). Furthermore, the new loader will automatically perform the screen init before launching the payloads if this wasn't already done by A9LH itself.
    copy from the log of aureinand release 3.9

    Ohhhh... So that's what the payloads folder inside the aurei folder does. Thanks! I already am good to go. But HUGE thanks anyways. :D

    some people forgot to replace safea9installer with cfw's a9lh.bin, then they have a "soft brick" 3ds which can only boot into the installer..... lol
