    Do you have arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma on your SD card? What does it do when it "doesn't open"? Does the blue power light blink on then off or stay steady?

    Hell
    Can you please be more specific? (It will help us a lot to determine your problem and helping you)
    What does your 3DS do right now when you power it on?
    Have you tried to power it on without a SD card or a different sd card with a9lh payloads?
    Can you access Luma settings (Holding select on boot)?
    Can you access any A9LH payloads?
    Do you have a NAND backup?
    Please answer all of the questions above so we can do our best to help you!

    Yep blinking means it can't find arm9loaderhax.bin. Try a different SD card.

    Doesn't the Guide tells you to copy the a9lh.bin to the CTRNand too?
    I've followed the guide 2 days ago in for a friends 3ds and it had that instruction written there

    Add arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma to your SD card. Download link is in the guide.

    Yes - you should be following the guide verbatim though. Don't go making stuff up or doing things out of order. That's risky.

    Try booting Hourglass9 and restoring your NAND backup, or doing a 9.2 CTR transfer.

    Make a luma folder, then put a payloads folder inside. Get the bin file for Hourglass9 (link in guide) and put it in the payloads folder and name it start_hourglass9.bin. Make a files9 folder on the root and put your NAND backup in it.
    Hold Start on boot to open Hourglass9. Go to SysNAND Options then SysNAND restore and choose the NAND backup file.
