    So I was doing EXACTLY as the a9lh guide told me to, and now I have gray screens on both top and bottom. Is it... bricked? Oh god I hope not...

    N3DS, O3DS? At which point did this happen? If you have an N3DS, did you put it to sleep while on 2.1? We need more information.

    A section and step number would be more useful than a general description.

    Does it still boot without SD card on? I knew OTPless install was better

    No it wasn't. Random bricks are not good at all. 2.1 on the new 3ds has been done since the guide came out and they have pretty much found all possible bricks and ways to avoid them. OTPless on the other hand is randomly bricking and nobody (Not even the dev) can figure out why.
