    I need to get homebrew launcher up and running so I can install FBI. It's on Sys 11.4U - what are my best options?

    you will need to put the godmode9 payload in your luma folder and manually inject fbi into health and safety.

    If its still got a9lh in sysnand then can't you put godmode9 on the sdcard, boot pressing start to load it and inject the FBI CIA into health and safety??

    When I received it, it was already ready to be set up. I set it up to the home menu but then I swapped it out for a 128gb card and copied the two folders over. So that was "Nintendo 3DS" and "luma" with the config file in it. In the luma folder I created "payloads" and put start_Hourglass9 in it. I copied over "3ds" from the starter kit to the root. I created "cias" on the root to prepare installations. When It was formatted there were no arm9loaderhax.bin on the root so I copied that over....is that not needed? I then tried copying the soundhax file and the otherapp.bin for my firmware on the root. That's all. So now I'm checking the guide and realize boot9strap is a new thing. I don't know if the guy installed a9 with that. I should probably get FBI up and running first.

    Then i would say that should be step 1 for you. Head over to the Luma3ds release page and download luma 7.0.5 and place the arm9loaderhax.bin file on the root of your sd card.

    okay thats good. So instead of using hourglass9 we are going to use godmode9. Go ahead and download godmode9 and place the godmode9.bin file in the luma payloads folder

    don't worry its very similar. Okay, so i'm not the best at articulating things so i am going to give you the best advice possible. You already have FBI.cia and Godmode9 on your system, Now follow the guide here: https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup at Step 4. Do that and you will be good to go.

    ALSO, Only go to Step 7!!!!!!!
    The rest of the guide focuses on Boot9Strap. You have A9LH installed so you can't do that part of the guide.
    If you want to update A9LH to Boot9Strap, then follow this when you are finished. https://3ds.guide/updating-to-boot9strap

    0000.F3882CB7 is the dir and then I choose the .app file with the same name? Guide says to use the ".app" file and that's the only .app file in the folder so.... is that the H&S app maybe?
