    I second that! Definitely follow the guide the other poster just linked, and then follow the rest of the guide after the end of that section redirects you!

    follow the tutorial to install cakes firmware. there will be a portion where u can install 9.2 via an exploit. I had a system with 6.x firmware, and that's what I had to do. the above tutorial assumes ur on firmware above 9.2. follow the tutorial once u can upgrade to that.

    i used a different sd card and now it si working

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Right now i am done with the injection and backing up the sysnand. However as I read aboutt o this part.

    If you get a database error, it is because you have never accessed the eShop before. To fix this, you will need to insert your SD card into your computer, then open the Nintendo 3DS folder. From here you will need to go into the first ID folder, then the second ID folder. The IDs will have random looking names. Now go to the dbs folder and create two empty files called title.db and import.db in this folder. Insert your SD card back into your 3DS then go to Settings > 3DS > Software. The system will tell you the database needs to be rebuilt. Allow it to do this, then redo steps 9 through 17.

    My system has never eshop before. Does that mean i have to redo 9-17 and then proceed to 34?

    I got stuck here.

    Navigate to http://yls8.mtheall.com/3dsbrowserhax_auto.php on your 3DS (if you get a slider, zoom all the way in on it, then tap the very right edge of it; this can take quite a few tries)

    I tried it and my system blink a few time and stuck with red screen so i have to power off

    Keep trying, Browserhax isn't always reliable.

    No, but it can probably help.
    It's just luck really. Sometimes it works on the first try, something it works on the 25th time.

    Putting boot.3dsx on the root of the sd card fixes this if you haven't already, fixed it for me anyway.

    OK, I got to the point of part iv of the guide. If my 3ds have no game save at all do I need to do:

    Right now is a good time to use a save manager to backup any saves you care about (do steps 10 - 18 then install the hblauncher_loader CIA)

    You can skip this step. You don't even need the Homebrew Launcher.cia installed, as Menuhax takes care of any homebrew entry needed throughout the guide (when my SysNand was on 2.1 I just needed to remove the SD to boot. then I put it back in the system, dumped my OTP, restored my 9.2 backup, and Menuhax was there for me to immediately install A9LH...
    Spoiler

    edit; except for when you need to launch Sliderhax/a Spider supported CFW (I used Cakes) to install Menuhax
