    Hey every time I try and flash a9lh, I get the following error:
    Firm0.bin doesn't exist or has a wrong size
    My N3DS XL is on version 2.1, as I am using OTP. I have tried 3 different SD cards with no luck. Anybody have an idea how I could fix this?

    EDIT fixed it how do you close thread

    Redownload the data_input.zip file and put the a9lh folder on the root of your SD

    Then you're simply doing something wrong.

    Doesn't all that go into the a9lh folder instead?
    firm0
    firm1
    secretsector
    etc

    EDIT:
    1. Copy the a9lh folder from the data_input zip to the root of your SD Card
    2. Copy the contents of the arm9loaderhax release zip to a9lh folder on your SD card

    Yes... he said to put the a9lh folder on the root. Which is exactly the same.

    Mabe you need version 4 on the new 3ds instead of version 3 even though the guide instructs you to use version 3 incase someone does the otpless install instead and needs the otpless file which got removed in version 4.I would also say to check the sd cards first to see if they are corrupted,but if you tried 3 sd cards with the same error already Anyways,the problem stems from something else if it isn't the data_input folder.Skipped a step perhaps?

    What's that supposed to mean? What i meant with my post was that you need both folders' content inside the a9lh folder of the SD card. not just data inputv3

    How about posting the solution? Another user might come here with the same problem.

    Sorry... I've been busy with school and it slipped my mind... I used the new safea9lhinstaller.dat, and that did the job for me.
