    Are you updating from the system menu from 2.1, or restoring a NAND backup? Do you have an O3ds or an N3ds?

    You're supposed to restore your backup you made on 9.2, THEN update. If you didn't go to 9.2 then you just restore the backup you made when you first used safehax. If you DIDN'T make a backup, then your bad. Don't skip steps to save time.

    True, but still, bricking sucks. Might as well do everything we can to help prevent it, eh?

    Yes. Think of the backup restore AS updating your system. The update is only if your system is on lower than 11.2 after the restore.

    Yes. That's what the guide says. Follow it to the letter.

    Report back when you've completed the guide and let us know what happens.

    • Go to “SysNAND Options”, then “CTRNAND Transfer”, then “Auto CTRNAND Transfer”
    • Select the 9.2.0 ctrtransfer image when prompted by pressing (A), then input the key combo given
    • If you do not already have a NAND backup, Backup SysNAND to NANDmin.bin when prompted by pressing (A)
    • Allow the transfer process to proceed automatically, this may take some time
    • Once the transfer is complete, press (Select) to eject your SD card
    • Put your SD card in your computer, then copy NANDmin.bin and NANDmin.bin.sha from the /files9/ folder on your SD card to a safe location
      • Make backups in multiple locations
      • This backup will save you from a brick if anything goes wrong in the future
      • Your backup should match one of the sizes on this page; if it does not, you should delete it and make a new one!
    • Delete the 9.2.0 ctrtransfer image .bin and .bin.sha from the /files9/ folder on your SD card
    • Reinsert your SD card into your 3DS
    • Press (Start) to reboot
    • Update your 3DS by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
    • Updates while using A9LH + Luma (what you have) are safe, stop asking about it
    • If this gives you an error, set your DNS settings to “auto

    where in the guide says i need to restore to 9.1 for making the update

    How about you actually follow the damn guide:

    https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax

    Section IV - Restoring the System
    If, before following this guide, you already had an EmuNAND setup and would like to move the contents of your previous EmuNAND to your new SysNAND CFW, now is the time to follow Move EmuNAND instead of doing the first four steps in this section.

    1. Open Hourglass9 from arm9loaderhax by holding (Start) on boot
    2. Go to “SysNAND Backup/Restore”
    3. Go to “SysNAND Restore (keep a9lh)” and restore from NANDmin.bin
    4. Press (Start) to reboot
    5. If your backup was of a version between 3.0.0 and 4.5.0, your console will not boot until you manually download the required firmware:
      • Download this file and rename it to firmware.bin
      • Download this file
      • Copy firmware.bin and cetk to the /luma/ folder on your SD card
      • Delete both of these files after updating your 3DS
    6. Update your 3DS by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
      • Updates while using A9LH + Luma (what you have) are safe, stop asking about it
      • The warning about never updating a New 3DS from 2.1.0 does not apply after restoring your NAND backup.
      • If this gives you an error, set your DNS settings to “auto”
      • If this still gives you an error and your NAND is below 9.2.0, follow 9.2.0 ctrtransfer
