    Hi guys. I'm confused. Can I erase the files9 folder in the root of my SD card after updating to Boot9Strap? Why? Also, what is aeskeydb.bin? Because that's the only thing I have in that folder I think.

    Thanks.

    you can delete everything in files9 and a9lh folders. I did it with three o3ds and they work fine

    files9 are files relating to Decrpyt9/Hourglass9. If you don't intend to use those, you don't need the folder.

    The only thing you need is boot.firm, and even that can just be moved to CTRNAND.

    If you moved to CTRNAND, chainloader and payloads doesn't work

    Luma's chainloader actually does work from CTRNAND if the payloads are also on CTRNAND. :)

    Is this how you have yours setup ?

    I kind of like the idea of having the payloads and godmode in nand to clean up the card

    Nah. I have a copy of them in CTRNAND but I don't see a good reason not to run them from SD card under normal circumstances.

    Copy Luma's boot.firm to CTRNAND and boot without an SD card to configure it. Use GodMode9 or FBI to create a payloads folder in /rw/luma in CTRNAND and copy .firm payloads to /rw/luma/payloads.

    I followed @squall14716 advice and it works well for me from nand, a few less files and folder on the sd if your ocd like me

    I'd no idea that i could move Godmode9 into NAND.
    I'll be doing this soon.
