    But you're supposed to use SafeArm9Installer to install a9lh.... what exactly did you do, step by step? What step did you get up to in the guide, and at which point did you deviate from the guide?

    Do you have arm9loaderhax.bin on your SD card?

    If the problem was missing arm9loaderhax.bin then the console would flash on then off, not stay on.

    1. Load up the files to the root of the SD Card. Make sure the SD Card is fat32. To check, find the SD Card and hit properties. If it is NOT Fat32, convert it now! It won't work unless you do it!!!

    2. Then load up Soundhax. Just hit the music player and hit down twice and the A button twice!

    3. Then find "Safehax." It will load up Decrypt9WIP if it is done correctly. If there is a black screen, place a game cartridge into the 3DS and hopefully, the bug will disappear and it will load.

    Instead, it showed safeA9LHinstaller, so I thought the person did something wrong.

    That doesn't sound familiar. You should be using http://3ds.guide.

    What did you do after that? You must have put the wrong bin file in your SD card. It will be hard to help you since you didn't use the established guide.

    Edit: what happens if you boot up without the SD card in?

    Did you have another console's OTP in the a9lh folder of your SD card? if so, trying to install a9lh using another console's OTP will brick it.

    If not, I don't know what it could be. SafeArm9Installer should just not work if you're not on 2.1 and don't have any OTP in the SD card.

    Do you have a NAND backup? If yes, you can fix it with a hardmod.
    If not, you're probably screwed. There's still a chance it can be fixed with the known-plaintext attack and a hardmod to rewrite the FIRM partition back to normal. While theoretically that's doable I'm not aware of anyone that's actually done it for a case such as this.

    Did you take a backup of your console's NAND when you followed this clearly shitty guide in god knows where? Because if you didn't and you directly downgraded to 2.1 then you are bricked for good .. Time to get a new console and read the instructions better next time. (And use a better guide..)

    ChibiMinu, People have asked you several times, do you have a NAND backup of your console? Yes or No. Simple question.
    If yes you're in luck, if not well....
