    So this dude was selling his n3ds xl http://imgur.com/IHRzPsk
    He didn't know much about what he was doing, and couldn't tell if its bricked or partial, gave up.

    "Worked fine until I tried to install A9LH, doesn't turn on just flashes blue on the LED for an instant then goes black"

    Are these bad signs?

    Can this be fixed?, I think he didn't put the correct files or messed up on a step. I sorta jumped the gun cause of the price and its bigger than my 2ds

    Does this guy have the file arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the sd card?

    Convince him it's broken and get him to sell it to you for a fire-sale price. :evil:
    that is kinda mean tho. it's up to you.

    hint: if it turns off instantly after powering on, that means a9lh is successfully installed.

    No it isn't a dead end. Just get an sd card and put in all the files necessary for the cfw of your choice and see if it boots. You are so lucky...

    It's a deliberate feature of A9LH V2 to power-off instantly if no SD card is inserted, or no arm9loaderhax.bin is found on the root of the SD.
    So yeah, that's all.

    I downloaded and put the files from https://github.com/AuroraWright/SafeA9LHInstaller/releases/tag/v2.5

    and I get a screen that says thanks to delebile, press select to update, start to uninstall . . .

    I pressed start, im in emunand 10.7.0-32U also anyway I can tell besides the fbi in homescreen?

    stupid me realized I want to now switch sdcards from the 2ds thats on rx-e 10.1(late to the party, found out rxtools is dead). Do I just copy everything over? Should I do a system transfer first or after?
