    Hi,

    I'm in the process of installing arm9loaderhax by following Plailects' guide (Part 5) and I'm dragging all the files I need to proceed onto the memory card. I'm at numbers 12 and 13 where I drag arm9loaderhax.bin and the Luma folder to the root of my memory card but I don't have a Luma folder in my downloaded zip of Luma3DS (v.6.3.1.7). Does this folder not exist in the newer version on Luma or have I downloaded the wrong version or something? I've downloaded the latest version from the link provided in the guide (Luma3DSv6.3.1.7z).

    My New 3DS XL is currently sitting on Firmware 2.1.0 and boots fine so it's ready for the next step. It's currently turned off to avoid the standby problem with the N3DS.

    Could someone point me in the right direction as I'm obviously doing something wrong here.

    Thank you :)

    Make a luma fonder and make a payloads folder inside of that. It doesn't matter if it doesn't exist yet.

    Also, you're following an old guide. It sounds like you're doing the old rednand guide rather than the new guide. Since you already came so far it doesn't matter, but you could have saved yourself the entire 2.1 downgrade by just following the new guide.

    I see, I presumed the guide I was following was an up to date one as it was last edited 7 days ago. Oh well. I've found the up to date guide thanks to the link in Migles post and 12 and 13 make sense now so I'll use that guide as the part 3 seems to be the same as the old part 5.

    Thank you for everyones fast replies, absolutely brilliant!

    I'm a little confused now. I've followed the instructions on both the new and old guide and I am at the point where I use the browser to go to dukesrg etc.... Everything runs fine but it loads up OTPHelper where it's supposed to be starting up the arm9 installer. I've copied everything over from what the guide says to do so I'm confused. Any ideas please?

    Copy arm9.bin and arm11.bin from the SafeA9LHInstaller download to the root of your SD card again.
