    Hi to all,

    I have followed closely to all the steps by steps. However, i realised i didnt put the Hourglass.bin into the payloads but luma folder instead. Everything was perfect till Section III - Configuring Luma3DS.

    Press (Start) to save and reboot
    • If you get a black screen, just continue to the next section
    I got a black screen, so I reboot with Start, and since I didnt put the hourglass in the right folder, it didnt worked. Without checking, I went to to follow the 9.2 ctrtransfer. I followed closely again, and under Section III - ctrtransfer, I did the system update as stated knowing that it state it will be safe. Still, I couldnt enter Hourglass so I decided to check, and that is when I realised I messed up and when i Boot my DS, its already at sys 11.3.0-36U. I have all the NANDmin.bin file, the OTP file. What is the next step I should do. I did inject the FBI, but its still showing the default health and safety.

    Really dissapointed in myself that I didnt checked. I was running 9.2 with Gateway if that helped beforehand.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Thanks it worked! However, I made another mistake in Section VI after injecting HS.app I did not remove the SD card and reboot 3DS, which meant i failed to enter Luma3DS and to turn on the following "Show NAND or user string in System Settings”. I tried repeating the step, but my 3DS will not power on without any SD card. Anyway to fix this?

    Thank you :)

    Yes! If the 3DS won't power on without the SD card, you've successfully installed A9LH. Under that same Section VI, if you follow the directions after installing Luma to your CTRNAND you will be able to boot without the SD card installed.

    READ THE INSTRUCTIONS MORE CAREFULLY!!! Are you asking for a brick???

    Th
    That meant I can no longer install Luma to my CTRNAND right to boost without SD card? This wont affect much as long as I have my SD card insert always no? Yea, I accidentally press Start instead of back so I end up booting with the sd card inside

    You can install it to your ctrnand. You will be able to boot with no sd card. Just continue the guide, and please be more careful.
