    1. You don't have arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD card.

    2. Do not follow video guides. Follow this guide instead.

    As was stated above, you need arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD card. Without it, your 3DS will power on, and then power off a second afterwards.

    Follow this guide instead: https://3ds.guide/

    What you've described is the opposite of dead; it means you have 'installed' a9lh

    nothing like driving it home twice. plailect writes his tutorials like how I write mine - the assumption anyone using it is a total noob and has no experience with any app.
