    O3DS/2DS v11.2.0-35U with soundhax as entrypoint: https://mega.nz/#!a9EjiLha!KxGuk2QaEVYyDrXBaNjjQZ6EgIFlFyKJTDoD57kcCLw
    N3DS v11.2.0-35U with soundax as entrypoint: https://mega.nz/#!b0kxURKB!GdMPmiDVC4Veg-ieyL9BZq5DDJAizSno89QjDjNUIhI

    If you want a video guide, here's one, made by KanterZ:

    If you have any error during the process, read this post entirely (the answer might be there). If the answer's not here, just ask.

    Here are the instructions:

    Requirements: uTorrent or Deluge.

    WARNING: If you have a 3DS from a region other than USA, read the steps after the "Instructions" section first. IF YOU HAVE N3DS, DO NOT PUT YOUR CONSOLE IN SLEEP MODE WHILE IN 2.1 OR UPDATE, you'll brick in both cases. IF YOU HAVE A 2DS, DO NOT FORMAT OR YOU'LL SOFTBRICK.

    1. Go to the link above that contains the ZIP for your device.
    2. Go to this link and download the SafeA9LHInstaller 7z. We'll get to it later.
    3. Go to this link (Note: it's a torrent magnet link, you'll need a torrent client to open it), download the file for your region and extract the zip.
    4. Go to this link and scroll down until you reach "Otherapp/ropbin payloads". Download the otherapp for your device and region, rename it to "otherapp.bin" and put it in your microSD root.
    4. Extract the Safehax ZIP you downloaded to your microSD root.
    5. Get the 2.1.0 ctrtransfer files and put them in your files9 folder in your microSD root.
    6. Put your microSD in your console.
    7. Open Nintendo 3DS Sound, press DOWN (d-pad) two times and press A two times.
    8. Homebrew will boot. Scroll down and launch Safehax. (If you crash or get a black screen, go to the Troubleshooting Steps)
    9. Decrypt9WIP will launch. Choose "SysNAND Options", "CTRNAND tranfer...", "Auto CTRNAND Transfer". Press LEFT, UP, RIGHT, UP and A. Press A twice. (one to select the downgrade file and the other to create a backup)
    10. Press B and SELECT.
    11. Put your microSD in your PC.
    11. Now you can delete the 2.1.0 ctrtransfer files from your files9 folder.
    12. Extract the SafeA9LHInstaller 7z and copy the "arm9.bin" to your microSD root.
    13. Open the folder: "Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000" and delete the folder "0000008f".
    14. Put the microSD in your console and press START.
    15. Open your browser, do the initial setup, click URL and go to "http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin". (If your screen glitches, refer to the bottom of the post)
    16. It'll open a black screen with a few things written on it. Press SELECT, wait a few seconds and press any button to shutdown your console.
    17. Power it on. The Luma3DS config screen will show. Press A at each one of the options (from "Autoboot SysNAND" to "Patch SVC/service/archive/ARM9 access). If you're on N3DS, also, Press A thrice at "New 3DS CPU". Press START and power off your console. If you get "Failed to Mount CTRNAND", just continue following the guide.
    18. Power it on again. Exactly after you press the POWER button, hold START. It'll boot Houglass9.
    19. Select "SysNAND Backup/Restore...", "SysNAND Restore (keep a9lh)". Now, press LEFT, UP, RIGHT, UP and A. Press A. After it successfully restores your 11.2 backup, just reboot your console. (If you don't have a backup, go to 9.2 CTRtransfer and update)
    20. Put your microSD into your PC and backup the "otp.bin" inside your "a9lh" folder.
    21. Download this file, extract, rename the "Decrypt9WIP.bin" to "up_Decrypt9WIP.bin".
    22. Put it in the folder "payloads" inside "luma" in your microSD root.
    24. Go to here and download the "fbi-2.4.2-injectable.zip" in the "What you need" section. Extract the "fbi-2.4.2-injectable.zip" and put all the .app in the files9 folder.
    25. Put the microSD back in your 3DS.
    26. Press UP while booting your console and choose "SysNAND Options", "Miscellaneous", "Health&Safety Inject". Press LEFT, UP, RIGHT, UP and A. Press A and START to reboot into Home Menu.
    27. Now open Health & Safety (which now is FBI), select TitleDB and install "hblauncher_loader v1.2" and "Luma3DS Updater".
    28. Select SD, press A on arm9loaderhax.bin, Copy.
    29. Press any button and press B.
    30. Select CTR NAND, press A on <current directory> and Paste.
    31. Press HOME, close FBI and wait a few seconds.
    32. Power off your console and put your microSD in your PC.
    33. Boot your 3DS and re-check everything, just like in step 17.
    34. Now you can delete the "a9lh", "files9", "Themes" folders and the "arm9.bin", "arm11.bin", "SafeA9LHInstaller.dat" and "soundhax-usa-o3ds.m4a" (on O3DSes, on N3DSes it's "soundhax-usa-n3ds.m4a") files and put your microSD in your 3DS again.



    For all those of you getting something similar to this:
    "arm11.bin loading.
    Shows a black bottom screen for less then a second.
    Glitched bottom screen.
    Both black screens.
    Turn off 2ds.
    Turn on + start.
    Normal startup."
    Copy the contents of this zip to the root of your microSD, excluding the arm9loaderhax.bin and try again.



    If you want to restore H&S, go to FBI, Titles, select FBI, Delete Title & Tickets and attempt a system update.



    If you have a 3DS from other region than U, follow these steps.
    1. Go to http://soundhax.com/ and select the right config for region and device.
    2. Instead of going to "Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000" and deleting the "0000008f" folder, delete "00000098" if yours is EUR, "00000082" if yours is JPN and "000000A9" if yours is KOR.

    1. Download this, rename its "Decrypt9WIP.bin" to "x_Decrypt9WIP.bin", and put it in /luma/payloads/
    2. Download the file for your region: N3DS USA, N3DS EUR, N3DS JPN, 3DS/2DS USA, 3DS/2DS EUR, 3DS/2DS JPN and put it in /files9/
    3. Hold X while booting your console
    4. Select "SysNAND Options","CTRNAND Transfer", "Auto CTRNAND Transfer", press LEFT, UP, RIGHT, UP and A
    5. Select the 9.2 ctrtransfer image
    6. Update to 11.2 through System Settings
    If you came here from step 8, put a game in the cartridge slot.



    If you came here from step 15, just follow the guide imagining nothing happened.


    If you can't get to Luma3DS screen after successfully following 16, get the arm9loaderhax.bin from this file and put in your microSD root.
    If, after getting a glitched screen on step 15 and continuing like nothing happened you still don't see Luma's config, just re-start step 15.

    Once I try to open soundhax, the music app crashes and forces my 2DS to restart. (11.2)

    Thanks Ned. He's the one who made this possible. I only packed it and put instructions

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Try again. Might take a few tries. It's not common, but normal.

    Hey, take some credit, too. I meant the people are greatful for the many works of many devs, but most people ALWAYS thank the person who turned the technical into laymans.

    Nedwill taught you how to fish. You showed them how to fish with barrels and guns.
