    How do they keep updated with changes to the guide though? That's the big problem with programs like this - working out how to stay updated. Last thing you want is someone to use half your program and half the updated guide, and brick.
    (My downloader will always stay updated automatically by the way --- https://github.com/quantumcat1/A9LH-Guide-File-Downloader)

    "Yes, github for the moment. There are a couple cases where I think we would need to update files in the setup steps:

    1) The file doesn't work. 2) The file has been updated to prevent bricking etc

    Number 1 shouldn't happen, as it should be tested before pushed. 2 is a little more complicated - obviously we want to minimise the chances of users bricking their devices, I think we should take it on a case-by-case basis."

    If it can't automatically update, it's dangerous.

    I'd imagine it would do a direct download from GitHub like the guide does

    The guide doesn't link the files usually, only the github release pages. So it will have to store the direct download links. And the actual guide words change too.

    There are more than a few of these "SD card structure" programs around here and they all get abandoned after a few weeks to a month. Not to say newer ones won't but people hardly ever seem to keep up with these. If a really nice one was written and kept updated perhaps it could be added to the guide.

    The most common mistake is the placement of the A9LH payloads, Data_input and Arm9loaderhax. I would have to see a good amount of "success" of such a program before using it. A mismatch between payloads and SafeA9LHInstaller = Brick.

    Wow, I've been working on a C# program to do this myself, but as usual before I get anything worth releasing someone does a better job.
    In any case, good work so far.
