    Section II - Installing arm9loaderhax
    1. Reinsert your SD card into your 2.1.0 3DS
    2. Go to http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin on your 3DS
    I did this step and now my 3ds only flashes a blue light if the SD is not in and gets stuck with a black screen with the SD in. I shut down the 3ds because it was frozen on that step.

    Continue with the guide. That's not a brick, that's how A9LH works

    Wow thanks for the fast reply!
    You were RIGHT! What a weird way for the 3ds to behave! Made me scared!

    Gambia, The
    Just to explain why this happened:
    You downgraded to FW 2.1, got OTP and installed a9lh if you followed Plailects Guide. Since you never restored any backup or something thr 3DS was still sitting at a 2.1 SysNAND and a 2.1 RedNAND.
    FW 2.1 can't be loaded from CFW at this time (maybe it is possible to achieve this in the future) and therefore you get a blackscreen.
    The guide even tells you that it won't boot as a own step.

    It's not a brick. It's a 3DS.
