    I tried test payload from Plaitect troubleshoot site and it worked. Then I tried downloaded hourglass again and It still didnt work.

    I found out that I dont have firmware.bin in luma folder, but it's on the root of SD card. Could that be a problem?

    Move it into the luma folder, and see if that fixes it.

    I'm so stupid. I found out now, that I skipped 2 steps in PART 5- Section 1. Can I do those steps now, eventhough I already installed
    arm9loaderhax in section 2?

    I don't see why you can't. That's just prep work. Section I. Do them over, correctly this time, and try again.

    So far so good. I managed to get into Hourglass, after I completed those steps, which I forgot earlier.
    Thank you guys for your time :)

    Could you try get another button for your Hourglass in payloads?
    name it up_HG9.bin (then you have to press the up Button on your d-pad during start)
    or maybe down_HG9.bin (then press down on your d-pad during start)
    please try it and if it works you can use it to finish Plailect's guide :)

    Already fixed. You are a bit late.
