    So i have this 3ds that had rxtools, i tried to install a9lh but when i opened arm9loaderhax.3dsx exploited arm9 and started the nand backup thing and shut (it was weird to me because in my other o3ds lasted a long installing) now starts at 9.2 (dont know if it is sysnand vanilla or sysnand a9lh).

    Check 1: i have these files (see atachment) if i change to another sd files when i turn on the power light comes on and then comes off.

    Check 2: deleted arm9loaderhax.bin and get same result from check 1 (maybe im on a9lh sysnand?)

    Hello! I'm actually here to seek help as well, I'm posting here because I didn't want to create another thread. I'm currently at step 34 of the famous guide where I need to format the emunand for the second time but I'm encountering an error while trying to install tinyformat again it says

    Failed to install CIA File.
    /TinyFormat.cia
    Result code : 0xCBA0802B
    Level : Status (25)
    Summary : Invalid State (5)
    Module : AM (32)
    Desc: Database does not exist(43)

    If you have your otp then just use safea9lh, there shouldnt be a reason for using a self compiled installer anymore. Use the last part of Plailect's guide to install it and if it still doesnt work then come back and ask again.

    Sounds like A9LH is working for you. I would suggest deleting everything besides your Nintendo 3DS folder (Back up any NAND/OTP dumps you might still have on there), re-installing AuReiNand (or cakes, if you prefer), and see if that boots up.

    A9LH is just a small patch to your SysNAND FIRM0/FIRM1 regions, where it looks for whatever you have at SD:/arm9loaderhax.bin and runs it. You should make that a CFW booter, like AuReiNand's arm9loaderhax.bin. If your 3ds can't find SD:/arm9loaderhax.bin (e.g. the card is out), then it bricks on you until you reboot and it finds one.

    Not sure. Here is the link to the guide. If you already have OTP start on part 5 and follow everything thoroughly, if there is anything wrong SafeA9LHInstaller should not mess up.

    The fact that it already boots up with arm9loaderhax.bin and doesn't when you don't have it means that A9LH is working.

    Try to hold select as you boot up. Does it bring you to the AuReiNand menu? If it does, try enabling "Display Sys/Emu in System Settings" and reboot.

    Is it normal that my nands became linked after this? I had to install menuhax again through the browser because I changed emunands theme.

    SCORE! changed files to latest Luma/Aurei and got the 19lh configuration. Thx everyone that helped to seek these because i was scared that i updated sysnand and bricked my friends consoles.

    PD: last advice what config should i use?

    unlink by running emunand then turning off, eject sd ,run sysnand and format sysnand, after that insert sd

    For the best possible setup, consider this: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-5-(arm9loaderhax-&-Luma3DS)

    Ignore any steps related to installing A9LH, and ignore Moving Emu(Red)Nand to SysNand if you already did that/have no reason to keep saves/games/dlc/nnid from EmuNand

    From there on, just tell your friend to only ever update through system settings, manage games only through FBI and never through data management, and they should be good to go... hopefully for life.
