    Hi,

    I succesfully installed A9LH on my 3ds. Now, if i want to update to boot9strap, on boot i get an error from luma which says the data is corrupt. I followed all the steps correctly... anyone knows what i maybe doing wrong?

    If it says the data is corrupted, try re-downloading the files

    I tried, but if i hold down the start button now, it automaticly boots up GodMode9 instead of SafeB9SInstaller (yes ive put start_ before its name).

    That sounds like you already have b9s, and bin files are not working anymore (Start will autoboot the payload if there's only one).

    a9lh uses arm9loaderhax.bin
    b9s uses boot.firm

    and for payloads a9lh uses .bin and b8s uses .firm

    Luma 8 will automatically boot the payload if you only have one .firm file in payloads. if you have several it will show a list.

    did you perhaps rename the safeb9sinstaller.bin to arm9loaderhax.bin?

    did you accidentally download the boot9strap-dev or -ntr 1.2 -zip?
    it needs to be the normal one!

    boot9strap/boot9strap.firm
    boot9strap/boot9strap.firm.sha

    and on new3ds
    boot9strap/secret_sector.bin

    those are the files you want that b9s installer looks for.

    if you're able to boot luma 8 (holdselect on boot to check) then don't use luma updater anymore. just update manually from now on.
