    i have a9lh installed on my 3ds. currently its on 9.0E. i would like to update it to the latest firmware. tried updating it via system update several time but always end up with error.

    I've downloaded the latest firmware file with 3DNUS. how can i update my console safely offline using the downloaded files without loosing my a9lh

    thanks

    Strange. You using Luma3DS as your CFW? Try booting into the config with select, or a payload. Try replacing the arm9loaderhax.bin from the latest luma build?
