    Remove SD card and boot. Slide it back in as soon as you see it has booted.

    You haven't dumped it yet. That's the next step.

    Now follow the rest of the guide very carefully. Word by word.
    1. Go to http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin on your 3DS
    2. OTPHelper will launch, then select the "Dump otp.bin (0x100)" option
    3. Press Select on the main menu to eject your SD card
    4. Put your SD card in your computer, then copy over otp.bin to a safe folder on your computer.
    5. Ensure that otp.bin is 256 bytes
    6. Backup otp.bin to multiple locations (such as online file storage)

    You're welcome. If I didn't like Xenoblade Chronicles so much I wouldn't have helped your ass. Just kidding. I woulda helped no matter what. :rofl:

    Just read the guide. The part where it says to take the SD card out is in there. You just need to stay calm and read. Don't panic - cos that's when shit gets bricked. :rofl2:

    In that case I suggest that you get to a safe point (after restoring your 9.2 sysnand backup is a good spot if you haven't done that already), mark down where you are in the guide, and finish it later. The a9lh procedure, especially anything related to the 2.1 downgrade, is not something you want to do unless you have a clear head.

    This is exactly what I did, and it was a success!
    Ruto77, you just need patience and time, read the words carefully.

    Sometimes I think you must be very "dumb" to brick your 3DS although it is often said that it can really happen...

    Or just tired and unfocused. Not sure why some people try to run through a process like this when they can't completely concentrate. That's really probably the biggest cause of bricks.

    Assuming that island means success, you're pretty close to it.
    For me, that part confused me the most, due to me being so close tk the screen.

    I got my arm9 working and now I am not a filthy menuhax pleb.
    the island meant "bricking" so being far away would be good.
