    so i tried instaling al9h via a guide but i screwed up somewhere down the line. tried going to the website listed and it made the colors on my 3ds go weird. figured it just bugged and turned off 3ds and now it wont turn on at all. light goes on for maybe split second and then turns off. i have the backup nand from earlier in the guide but can i even reflash it somehow when the 3ds wont even turn on? kinda lost (probably what i deserve for trying it at 3:30 in the morning)

    Do you have the arm9loaderhax.bin file on the root of your SD card?

    it sounds like a9lh was installed, put arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your sd card.

    It sounds like you might have turned off the console in the middle of the A9LH install. Check that you have arm9loaderhax.bin on the SD as mentioned above. What happens when you try to turn on the console, does it black screen or power off? Can you access the Luma menu if you hold Select on power on?

    I just fucked-up my 9.2U downgrade, and like an idiot, I updated to 11.2 to start again... after formatting and losing my DSiware exploit. >.<

    I get to try again next Sunday, which is Christmas. :/
