    By "won't turn on", do you mean when you press the power button, the power LED turns on for a second, then immediately turns off?

    If the LED comes for a second and turns off, then it means A9LH is installed properly. You just don't have the payload of Luma on the SD card.

    Please include more context with your posts. Three-word posts like this result in bricks.

    Assuming the power light turns on and then immediately turns off: This means A9LH is installed, but you don't have arm9loaderhax.bin set up. Go get Luma3DS and extract the arm9loaderhax.bin file from the 7z to the root of the SD card, then try again. You should get the Luma3DS configuration menu.

    After that, you'll want to start Hourglass9 and restore your NAND backup. (This is all detailed on https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax .)

    It going to the URL should boot into it and it doesn't need the OTP because it dumps the OTP for you. Did you skip any steps?

    Please stop whatever you are doing. Can you boot into Luma3DS?
    Simply place the arm9loaderhax.bin from this folder into the root of your SD card and boot up your system
