    Hi All

    Ive got a brand new 3ds xl with no save data that im concerned about.

    Ive been going through the Plailect Guide and hit a bit of a wall at Part 5 section IV.
    My issue is that no matter what keys I hit (Start for decrypt, x for uncart, y for emunand) the DS just hangs on a blank screen.
    The moment I release the key it resumes booting up into my 9.2 sysnand.
    Ive redownloaded the payloads and the slot keys from the mirrors provided in the wiki and tried again but Im getting the same result :(

    Images attached with SD card files.

    I was reading another persons thread how they had an issue with just decrypt9 not loading but I didnt quite get how they manage to remedy it.

    Any help with how to get past this step is appreciated!

    Thanks

    do you have a9lh already installed?
    If so, you might be pressing too much time on the assigned key. you can only press like 2 seconds or it will hang

    The last step I did was installing "SafeA9LHInstaller" then rebooting and setting up the settings for the auto boot sysnand.

    I can hit select on boot to change these settings easily - I just cant run decrypt9 as per the instructions in the guide :(.

    I am assuming the A9LH is installed going by the steps from the guide

    okay, did you copy the payload files before or after installing luma3ds? also, try deleting the luma3ds config file in the luma folder

    I put everything on the SD as the guide told me.
    after it failed i read some posts about deleting and redownloading the files incase they were corrupt etc so i did that just to be safe.

    ive deleted the config and recreated it again on boot. same result :/

    Nope :(
    Holding down start seems to delay the boot, but when released it just boots up the sysnand instead.

    Just to make sure im doing this correctly.
    Turn off ds, Turn it back on, quickly press and hold the start key for x seconds, release and decrypt should run?

    Does it really matter? I mean, as long as it's named start_ it should boot.
    I didn't see OP had posted screenshots, but his is named start_ so it should work.

    I tried with the button pressed first - same again, it stays on a black screen until I release the key, then it boots up the sysnand again.

    I'm at a bit of a loss. I can still boot up the homebrew loader but none of the apps there work now...
    So I'm not sure if its possible for me to go back to a previous step at this rate :(

    Seems it does.
    Renamed the file and it booted first time!
    Thanks nero!

    May want to get the guide updated with those new names - have y_EmuN9 or x_Uncart changed at all?

    Thanks Migles also for your help :)

    I just finished setting up an o3DS system, and start_Dec9.bin works just fine on my setup, even prior to updating to the latest nightly//hourly//unstable luma3ds release. Actually, double checking all my current systems, it's start_Dec9.bin on each of them and they all boot Decrypt9 just fine. I could double check my friend's n3ds xl, I setup, but I am certain it's also the same as all my current setups.

    Strange :/
    Ive used the latest downloads from each, so unless my machines just being picky :P

    but now emunand wont boot - back to the drawing board :(

    EDIT: FIXED!! - seems the new LUMA doesnt like capitals in the filenames. Changed to lowercase and they all load fine :)
