    yo.
    so i just installed arm9loader hax and the installation went pretty smoothly, but i have a small problem. so the tutorial i followed had me install a cfw, but no emunand. this would be fine and all, but now i find myself unable to make one. i've tried to use emunand9, but it just won't launch.
    I'm using CakesFW on 10.6.0-31 and i've got backups of my old emunand and sysnand. Any help is much appreciated.
    Thank you very much.

    use aureinand instead of cakes, hold L on boot to use 9.0 firm then use emunand9 3dsx, back everything up first this will format your sd card.

    Make sure that you have both firmware90.bin and firmware.bin in your rei folder.

    How about just holding R? Does that load anything?

    OK and probably the last question, are you using regular mode or updated sysnand mode?

    Can I see the contents of your sd card? I don't think you screwed up installing a9lh. It'd be abnormal. I think you did something wrong with your sd card along the way. And I saw your edit, you need the firmware.bin and firmware90.bin from the place that you're linked to in the a9lh thread.

    Edit: I need to see the root and the rei folder if that's fine. PM if you prefer and anything you'd like blurred.

    You can't boot higher FW system files with an old FIRM, only the other way around.

    Boot EmuNAND9'with a9lh (if you even can yet) and create an emunand, then restore it.

    If you can't, you're going to have to downgrade to 9.2 to create it.

    Looks like d0k3 released it for a9lh today.

    Make it from there then flash your backup.

    He doesn't need to create an emunand. If he's using AuReiNand on regular mode, he's autobooting to emunand.

    What version is your sysnand? 9.2? If so it will work.

    Hmm. I guess try gameking's idea, but if I'm right, you're using a boot manager as well right? If you are, I'd make sure that "L" actually boots to something.

    uh, i'm thinking of restoring my 9.2 sysnand using decrypt9 and then making me some emunand. do you think that will work?

    Sure it'd work and did you ever download bootctr or something like that and put it in the root of your sd card? Well that's a boot manager and you have to configure it to boot certain things depending on the buttons you press.
