So, I was following a guide on CFW (because when it comes down to things such as Luma, i'm an utter noob) and I managed to do a ctrtransfer to 2.1.0 successfully. Then I moved onto this step of the guide, which appeared to be going OKAY. I understand the uTorrent steps and followed the guide, even double checking I had each file correct (to what the guide was telling) and went onto booting my O3DS in 2.1.0. I insterted the SD card AFTER it was booted, which is what the guide says I assume, and proceeded to enter the url as prompted. When armloader9 actually booted, it said something about a payload error and I then gave up at that point because I'd been running into a few errors before hand. I decided to call it a day (and here is where I really think I screwed up) I did back up as it says in the previous step. "If you do not already have a NAND backup, backup SysNAND to NANDmin.bin when prompted by pressing (A) Having a backup of your device’s NAND is REQUIRED. Skipping this backup will result in the LOSS of all installed games and saves!" I updated the system via system settings, and fixed my SD into it's previous state (deleting a lot of the payloads and .bin files required ect.) and booted up my 3DS. Immediately it had my custom theme that was previously installed, there. Most my (legit) CIA games weren't there which I wasn't surprised by, but now I have no idea how to get them back. My safeHAX no longer works due to removing a payload, and I have no idea how to retrieve any of my savedata from my backup. safeHAX is still in my homebrew but does anyone know whether i'll have to reinstall all my CIAs or what I'll have to do to retrieve this 'backup' I created in safeHAX before doing the ctrtransfer. Also, it comes up in FBI as under 'Ext Save Data'. I honestly wish I'd tried to figure out the payload issue with armloader9, because a lot of the games had progress. Sorry if I sound like a noob lool, I'm honestly not used to payloads or .bin files. I only really know basic homebrew + legit CIA install + save manager in all honestly. ++ Does anyone know a way to skip sig check without a CFW or am I just being a noob again? I can't even install cakeFW without screwing up somehow.
