    I recently installed A9HL on my o3ds and everything wroked fine, got the otp, restored the nand...
    But when i installed a9lh, after the installation there was a black screen for about 5 minutes (that didnt happen to my other 3ds when I installed it), so i rebooted the 3ds and it keeps with the same black screen, there isnt any backlight either
    And yes, I have the arm9loaderhax.bin and Luma3ds' files on the sd card
    I also tried recovery and it doesnt work, nothing happens, tried to remove the sd and power on and do recovery without it but nothing happens, everything stills black.
    Anything I can do to fix this or any suggestions?

    Well, that's probably why. I hate to say it, but you've bricked. (Unless plai's guide has been updated and it doesn't say anything about booting into minipasta before installing a9lh.)

    Its strange because i first installed a9lh on my other 3ds using the same method, not plais guide but a youtube guide and it worked perfectly

    NEVER USE YOUTUBE GUIDES.

    They get outdated, Plai's guide is the safest possible install because it's updated often.

    Got a backup of your SysNAND? If so, a hardmod might bring it back to life.

    So what? Do we need to do it or not? I'm already wary of doing the OTP process, if the steps in the guide aren't even consistent then...I'm not sure I will take the plunge...

    If it's not in the guide anymore then you don't need to. It's constantly altered as the tools we have change and things become easier.

    Just follow the guide - I got A9LH on my 3DS with MiniPasta and A9LHInstaller on an older guide version, and installed A9LH on a friends 3DS without MiniPasta and SafeA9LHInstaller. It changes, but as long as you read the guide, you'll be fine.

    It could've been due to something else, such as their OTP not being extracted correctly. (That's why you always check the size of your OTP.)

    Try recovery mode? Take out your SD card, reboot your system while holding onto the L/R, A and Up on the d-pad.

    I had a similar situation - had to reflash a system when I took off A9LH (getting a "stock" 9.2 sysnand backup), and ended up with a black screen upon reboot.

    I tried a couple of times and got it working again.

    Black screen on SysNAND boot after installing arm9loaderhax
    1. Ensure you have a working payload.
      1. Check for the existence of arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of your SD card.
      2. If you are following the Luma3DS guide, check that
        1. /luma/firmware.bin exist; and
        2. /luma/firmware.bin is the correct one for your console.
      3. If you are following the CakesFW guide, check that
        1. /arm9bootloader.bin exists;
        2. /Cakes/firmware.bin and /Cakes/firmkey.bin exist and are the correct ones for your console; and
        3. /boot_config.ini exists.
    2. Test booting Decrypt9
      1. On CakesFW, hold X on boot
      2. On Luma3DS, hold Start on boot
    3. Try this test payload (mirror).
      1. Rename /arm9loaderhax.bin, if it exists, to something else.
      2. Place the arm9loaderhax.bin from the archive linked above in your SD root.
      3. Insert your SD card into your 3DS and power on.
      4. Press A. Your 3DS should power off; this means arm9loaderhax is working and something else is broken; your device is not bricked.
    4. Your 3DS may be bricked. For real time support, contact me or any other channel operator at #3dshacks on Rizon IRC
