    I've been following this guide https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax and just got the part where you 'SysNAND Restore (keep a91h)' but now it tells me that there is no usable file, and I can't find the backup. Is there any way for me to rectify this?
    Already looked in /files9/ , it doesn't look like theres a backup in there. Any way to reset this whole thing so I can try to restart?
     
  2. okay to restart it i think this one works but im just gonna say it "update your firmware" but im not recommending it unless the one im about to tell you doesn't work

    go ahead and go into the place where your suppose to restore the NAND and tell me the options then we'll continue

    With

    When I click "SnsNAND Restore (keep a91h)" it asks me to do a series of button presses (left, up, right, up, a) then right after that tells me there is no usable files.
     
  5. hmmmmm you can just take my NAND backup its at 11.2.0-35U i think it has my nnid i mean i did keep that during the hack through

    but anyways i meant the home menu of the app you use to do that not the actual process lol

    Restoring someone else's NAND backup will brick the system. Never suggest that idea again, please.

    Do you have any way to factory reset this so I can retry as a fresh slate?
    Do you have any ideas to restore this? I hope it isn't bricked :/
     
  10. the only thing id say is update your firmware by going into system settings

    Place your emunand backup in the files9 folder on your sd card. Also make sure you are using the latest decrypt9.

    Did you make an emunand backup before you started this process?

    If you did it would be labeled emunand.bin or something similar on your sd card. If you did not make a backup or it is no longer there you will need to do a 9.2 ctr nand transfer, but you will lose your games and save data (I am assuming you did not backup your saves and tickets too).

    If you still have the emunand partition on you sd card you can use emunand9 to clone your emunand to your sysnand but you will have to start the a9lh process over again.

    I just realized that I'm dumb.

    The solution is actually very simple.

    1. Open decrypt9 and go to emunand options.

    2. Backup emunand.

    3. Go to sysnand options and restore sysnand (keeping a9lh) using the emunand backup you just made.

    4. ??????

    5. Profit.

    I do not know if this will work with hourglass9 since I have never used it.

    This is also assuming you are using the sd that has your emunand.

    Holy shit stop recommending this. You don't know whether OP is on an O3DS or N3DS, and doing this on an N3DS is a guaranteed brick.

    I know you're just trying to help, but for the love of god don't try to help if you don't know what you're talking about.
