    Hi, I following this guide to install a custom firmware to my old 3ds.
    I'm stuck at "Section IV - Restoring the System".
    Which says "Boot your device while holding (Start) to enter Hourglass9".

    booting to Luma3DS while holding select seems to work just fine.

    I've tried to redownloading the files again and follow steps from the Section I, twice
    I have these files on my SD cards:

    If someone have an idea for me, thanks !

    Are you sure you have luma installed properly?

    I think, I can boot in Lumas 3ds configuration by holding select avec choose the options.
    When I boot by holding start I'm on the 3ds classic menu, the same when I boot normaly

    Not sure, i noticed you renamed "start_Hourglass9.bin" Try "Start_Hourglass.bin" You know Upper case "S" for Start? :unsure:

    Make sure to hold start when powering on the system, make sure the button isn't broken first :P

    Make sure you can see file extensions. If not, you may have a .bin.bin. Sounds silly, but it's a common stumbling block for ppl.

    You could also try transferring all the files to another micro SD / SD card.

    I don't know why you cannot boot into it, but it's definitely not the file name issue. I tested this myself the other day, I believe the name could be StArT_HoUrGlaSs9.bin if you really wanted and it'd still boot.

    ANYWAY .. This is the solution from an another thread:

    Probably with start being the luma chainloader now give it a different button or none at all and load the chainloader with start.

    Oh and what fw where you on? The system shouldn't have loaded on 2.1 - unless you meant the error screen

    My start button is ok !
    I'm on step Section VI - Finalizing setup.



      • Open Health and Safety (which is now FBI)
    When 3ds boot i'm on Hourglass9, I don't see Health and Safety in Menu, just :
    SysNAND Backup/Restore
    EmuNAND Backup/Restore
    Gamecart Dumper
    Miscellaneous
    Validate NAND Dump.

    Where I can find Healt & Safety ?

    Edit : I solved my second problem. I rename the arm9loaderhax file and i boot in 3ds menu !

    Why don't you look around? It's not like you can break your console with H9 just by looking if you don't do anything. H&S is under SysNAND Backup/Restore.

    I think OP is referring to the step after the injection.

    It is on your home menu, just boot your 3DS normally. Not into Hourglass9.
    The guide didn't tell you to boot into Hourglass9 again.

    Just follow the 3ds.guide really closely, and take it literally. I mean CFW isn't the easiest of things to install, but if you follow the guide to the T, you should be okay. I'd just review the steps closely, and make sure you haven't missed anything out.
