OP
im bored so I decided to write this
this tutorial uses a version of GodMode9 that's not the latest because 1.4.2 was the latest when I wrote this, you can grab the latest from github if you want or you can try out my mod (in my sig)

ntrboot instructions are not included because you can just install b9s with it then follow the have cfw section
if you have a9lh just update to b9s then follow the have cfw section

now onto installing the awesome gm9 bootloader!

this is a slightly modified and shortened version of 3ds.guide
there may be errors

1. Make sure you have your system

2. Download the SoundHax file for your system and put it on the root of your sdcard

3. Download the SafeB9SInstaller and copy the folder in the archive to the 3ds folder on your sdcard then copy the bin file to your sd card and name it "safehaxpayload.bin"

4. Download UDSploit and put it in the 3ds folder on your sdcard

5. Download SafeHax and put it in the 3ds folser on your sdcard

6. Download b9s 1.3 then create a folder on your sdcard named "boot9strap" and extract the files into it

7.
(7 is my favorite number :P) Download GodMode9 1.4.2 and extract the files to your sdcard then name the firm file "boot.firm"

8. download the 3ds starter kit and extract the boot.3dsx to your sdcard and download the other app and ropbin from here then put it on your sdcard and name it "otherapp.bin" and "ropbin.bin" respectively

9. put the sdcard in your system and turn it on

10. launch 3ds sound (yes ive given up on capitalization)

11. play "<3 NedWill 2016"

12. select udsploit from the list of homebrew

13. wait about 1 second then press start

14. select safehax from the list

15 wait for it to finish then reboot

16. 3ds.guide tells you to use luma, but you should check out other cfws too and not hate others for using them, i recomend checking out ReiNand

17. goto have cfw (b9s)

1. download godmode9 1.4.2 and replace your boot.firm with it (unless boor.firm is already gm9)

2. boot your system

3. select boot.firm

4. in FIRM IMAGE OPTIONS pick install firm

5. choose install to both

6. reboot holding r+left

7. chose continue godmode9

8. move all your payloads to gm9/payloads

9. replace boot.firm with your old boot.firm

10. profit
instructions for updating or installing my mod are the same as the have cfw section
You can actually get an always up to date compiled saltmode9 from the nightly site or this link

@Eix It says not running from a bootstrap compatible entry point then it shut down the 3ds when i press A.

it says to provide aeskeydb.bin file to make it go away.

Where can i find that file?

I was able to figure out what folder to put into but I still get that message. The only difference is that when I press A it now boots into rei-six, but I can't use the chain loader.

I followed your guide for people that already have b9s installed.

Then I replaced the gm9.firm on root of sd card with rei-six.firm. I renamed the rei-six to boot.firm on root of sd.
GodMode9 uses R1+Left on boot

It says that but it doesn't let me go in with r1+ left. I still get the aeskey.bin message even after I placed it I'n the support folder.
is the aeskeydb.bin 256 byte or 1kb?
is it GodMode9 made with `make SALTMODE=1`?
sorry it took so long i was at school

heres a saltmode build of the latest GodMode9
it doesnt have the aeskeydb.bin hardcoded because im wouldnt be allowed to post it if it did
make sure your aeskeydb.bin is 1kb and in 0:gm9/payloads
