    GG.
    My O3DS keeps showing SafeA9LH installer and it says it's successful.
    But it keeps repeating itself.
    Taking out SD card doesn't do anything.

    RIP, O3DS.

    I guess this is the end for me with 3DS T_T.

    Does it turn off without an SD?

    Yup.
    So I can't even reset it now.

    Powering on leads to powering off right after a few seconds.

    You didn't brick make sure you have arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD card.

    You're not bricked. It means A9LH was successful

    Put the Luma3DS arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of the SD card (you have the SafeArm9LoaderHaxInstaller).

    The reason why is showing SafeArm9LoaderHax is because you don't change the .bin file.

    Wherever I log in at ^w^
    A9LH is set to automatically shut off the System if arm9loaderhax.bin is not detected. Follow the guide and it would have told you.

    You installed it correctly, it just can't find the file needed to boot.
