    I am in the process and its already giving me trouble, SafeB9Sinstaller keeps giving me this error "SigHaxed FIRM was not installed!, check lower screen" I am following 3ds.guide update method BTW

    I am trying this with a o3ds with A9lh and luma v6.6 with it setup to only boot when the SD card is inserted into the 3ds if anyones curious.

    I'd say 100% safe so far, updating from A9LH using the 3ds.guide, as I have done 3 consoles of my own and my neighbors today. Not seen any bricks using the 3ds.guide update today??

    Can you even brick using boot9strap considering it won't even start the install unless all the conditions are met? It doesn't have a force install like sighax.

    because I wanted good answers
    Using the installer from sighax.com there have been 3 bricks.

    The only way you could brick using SafeB9SInstaller is by using a bad boot9strap.firm (would have have to malicious or maliciously stupid given that it checks the hash with the .sha file) or a one in a million catastrophic failure in the middle of installation.

    It is effectively 100% brick-proof.

    Yes, because derrek's installer doesn't protect against stupidity.

    To everyone who voted
    "It didn't work"
    Please try again, it should work fine. Make sure you have the correct files in the correct places, and triple check the guide.
    To the one person who tried sighax.com and it didn't work
    gg you dodged a bullet, try using 3ds.guide
