    Gambia, The
    go through 3ds.guide first!! If you update without doing that you will be locked out of having any CFW (well they are just signature patchers and not real CFWs) until we have boot9 + you'd need a hardmod, so go and take your chance

    As addi33 stated use 3ds.guide to install CFW with A9LH, then you can always update both your game and your system when future updates hit.

    If you want to play backup games, permanent homebrew, without the need of running soundhax each time, perform the A9LH guide here: http://3ds.guide

    Follow each step of the guide without screwing it, if your console its a N3DS, dont close the lid nor perform an update system on 2.1, just to be sure, and you will be fine :D

    Keep in mind this is your only chance, as once you update theirs no going back. Also, once you install a cfw, if you really want, you can just treat it like a vanilla console. Just dont miss your chance.

    Are you in this part of the section?

    Instructions
    1. Remove your SD card from your device, leaving it on the Homebrew Launcher, then insert your SD card into your computer
    2. Create a folder named files9 on the root of your SD card if it does not already exist
    3. Copy safehax.3dsx to the /3ds/ folder on your SD card
    4. Copy fasthax.3dsx to the /3ds/ folder on your SD card
    5. Copy Decrypt9WIP.bin from the Decrypt9WIP .zip to the root of your SD card and rename Decrypt9WIP.bin to safehaxpayload.bin
    6. Reinsert your SD card into your 3DS
    7. Launch fasthax from the list of homebrew
      • You may have to scroll down to see this option
    8. Once it has completed, press (Start) to exit back to the Homebrew Launcher
      • This may take several tries
      • If it freezes, just force the console to power off by holding the power button, then try again
    9. Launch safehax from the list of homebrew
      • You may have to scroll down to see this option
      • If it freezes, just force the console to power off by holding the power button, then try again
    10. If the exploit was successful, you will have booted into Decrypt9
    If yes, are you:

    Copying Decrypt9WIP.bin from the Decrypt9WIP .zip to the root of your SD card and renaming it Decrypt9WIP.bin to safehaxpayload.bin

    This is an easy one, you got your payload named "safehaxpayload.bin" but the extension also includes the .bin.

    So just remove the .bin of the name and voila!
