    1. Copy the a9lh folder from the data_input .zip to the root of your SD card

    Show us a picture of your SD card contents, the root and the a9lh folder.

    As expected, you're missing files from the a9lh folder. Try again.

    Also, very important!!!

    Remove that otp.bin from the a9lh folder!!!

    You've obviously used this SD card in another console - having the otp.bin from another console present will cause a BRICK!

    You are incredibly lucky you didn't manage to follow the guide properly yet. The guide also told you to delete any a9lh folder already present - why did you not do that? Please follow the guide step by step and don't skip anything. Unless you are trying to brick.

    1. Copy the contents of the arm9loaderhax release .7z to a9lh folder on your SD card
    You copied those files to the root of your SD card, not the a9lh folder. Move them to the a9lh folder.

    That is perfectly normal, as long as you install A9LH and restore your backup the screen will return to normal, just don't worry. This glitch is possibly because 2.1.0 is a firmware older than the 2DS's launch firmware (version 6.0) and is not 100% compatible, but please do not update from 2.1.0 on your 2DS and continue with the A9LH install steps.
    The screen also won't be oversized when using the Internet browser.
