    image.jpg i was trying to install cfw on my cousins 3ds I downgraded to 2.1 installed a9lh then when I go to hourglass and click SysNAND Restore (keep a9lh) I get this I tried using another nandmin from my 3ds and it failed and I've been stuck at this screen for a couple of days and for some reason it won't detect the nandmin when I clearly have the file

    You cannot restore a other console nand (without sighaxed signature n stuff) it will totally brick. also don't install a9lh, don't do video guides. follow http://3ds.guide to install boot9strap, in your case do a ctrtransfer to 9.2 or restore the actual nand backup and then follow the a9lh to b9s part in Plailect's guide.

    don't you understand, or won't you understand? the ctrtransfer equals the nand restore since you are now higher then 4.5 .

    YOU CANNOT RESTORE ANOTHER CONSOLE'S NAND THE CONSOLE WILL BRICK.

    so now that you wasted your time on a9lh, go to http://3ds.guide and click "a9lh to b9s"
    Developers dropped the support for arm9loaderhax, you should go with boot9strap from now on.

    First, you should have been following this guide to install boot9strap instead of A9LH: https://3ds.guide/

    Backup the contents of your SD card, reformat it, and try again with the correct NAND backup. You cannot use the NAND backup from another 3DS.

    If that doesn't work, you need to do a 9.2 ctrtransfer.

    Sorry it's really hard to follow this so this 3ds is bricked meaning it's done?

    No, it's not bricked. Have you tried reformatting the SD card and then trying to restore the NAND backup? Have you tried a different SD card? What happened when you tried to do a 9.2 CTRNAND transfer?

    I've tried formatting it then dragging the contents back into it still fails to recognize the nandmin and I did a ctrtransfer with godmode 9 I think my nandmin is corrupted

    To be clear, was the 9.2 CTRNAND transfer successful? Can you boot the 3DS? Is it on 9.2?
