    I followed Plailect's guide perfectly. I have my otp file now and I'm restoring my system (section 4). However, otphelper showed this message:

    Opening sysNAND_original.bin . . .
    NAND header not recognized!
    SysNAND restore: failed!

    help!
    o3ds, setup is how it should be in part 4 section 2 of plailect's guide

    Did you, by any chance, after dumping your sysnand back up check if it has the correct size? It's actually mentioned in the guide. Can you tell me what is the file size of your nand dump?

    Did you read the troubleshooting page of that guide? If not, look under "OTPHelper/Decrypt9 won't restore / can't find my NAND backup" and follow those steps. There's a good chance your SD card is fragmented.

    Same bytes?

    Edit: If you really do follow Plailect's guide to the letter, i would assume that you also have a sysnand.bin as your dump(This was made From Part3: Rednand)? I believe you can use that too for restoring sysnand.

    And as @morvoran mentioned, try reading the this

    For the record, it would have also been possible to (O3DS only) use a 4.x game cart to update to 4.x, then use RxTools via web browser or MSET to update to a clean 9.2 system, set up menuhax, and install A9LH from there. (Anything that was on your SysNand by the end of Part 3 would have been lost though, but most everything else exists on EmuNand anyway)

    In any case, I'm glad you got your problem solved!
