    i followed this guide
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Updating-A9LH
    but i realized that i used SafeA9LHInstallerv2.0.3 instead of 2.5.1

    when i try to boot the O3DS, well it just shows the blue led and a black screen. Nothing happens, is just on.

    Is there anything i can do?

    appears to be the way. Do you now if Hourglass uninstalls Health and Safety app?

    You mean if it injects FBI to your HS app?

    I am saying that i simply do not have the hs.app (quite literally unless icon name changed). Do you know a way to get it back/.?

    If you've actually removed Health & Safety from your system, and you're running luma or other cfw, you can go into system settings and select update (even from 11.1 to 11.1) and it will replace any missing system apps you don't have installed.

    I have a 3DSXL and I used the plailec A(LH update guide for Nov 3 2016. I followe dthe guide and press select to update my A9LH and it said successful and press a button to shutdown. When I insert my SDcard again after I deleted the a9lh folder and the down_safea9lhinstaller.bin file I only get a blue light on my 3DSXL and orange light.

    here is what I tried so far:

    1. verified the arm9loaderhax.bin is in the rood of my SDCard
    2. used the test payload but it still do not boot
    3. Took out the SDcard and boot without it
    4. Press SELECT on bootup with SDCARD in and out
    5. Press START on bootup with SDCARD in and out
    6. Delete /luma/config.bin from your SD card
    7. Tried to get into Safe mode with these key combos but cannot get in
    1. Power off your 3DS by holding down the power button.
    2. Hold L+R+A+Up.
    3. Power on the 3DS.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Do you have a NAND backup? A hardmod may be your only solution. That sounds a lot like a hard brick from OTPless install going awry. You might try one of the threads on that to ask if anyone has ideas for you to try.

    I think it's hard bricked since the recovery mode doesn't work. I do have multiple copies of my NAND, is there a service to hard mod itt?

    have you tried using the arm9loaderhax.bin (from here https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/tag/v6.6) or the old one? it should be .bak on your sd card.

    I overwrote my old arm9loaderhax.bin with the one from lumas v6.6.7. I also tried the arm9loaderhax.bin from v6.6.5 I'm really not sure how it got bricked. I followed that guide to the T.
