    So I've been following the guide up until this part where I can't boot into Hourglass9 by holding start. I tried renaming the buttons to left, x, y, still nothing. Similarly, i can't launch into decrypt9 or emunand9 while holding x/y. I can still get into Luma's screen while holding select. What should i do?

    Remove your SD. Now boot.
    Does it turn off immediately?

    Did you put the Hourglass payload inside luma/payloads folder?

    Okay, good you have arm9loaderhax installed. Just delete the arm9loaderhax in the root of the SD card and extract the hourglass9 .bin payload to the root
    Then rename it to arm9loaderhax.bin .

    Yeah i do. When i first backed it up i renamed it to emuNAND_original.bin and emuNAND_original.bin.sha respectively. So when i placed them both in the root and it didn't work the first time. So i tried renaming them both to emuNAND.bin and emuNAND.bin.sha. Still no luck.

    you could try Decrypt9, but make sure to choose sysNAND Restore (Keep A9LH) otherwise, you will lose a9lh

    No, its a bit more advanced and if you dont use the restore keeping A9LH, you can lose the hack and end up in 11.0 without hacks

    Can you show us the root of the SD card with a pic?
