    The arm9loaderhax.bin file is missing from your SD card.

    Could you re-download it and replace the file? Make certain it's at the root of the SD card. Also make sure your SD a card is correctly formatted. If you have another SD card try with that one as its possible that there's a problem with the card itself.

    I don't think either of those things would cause this problem. Immediate power-off means the payload can't be found.

    Can you tell me how many files you have in SD:/a9lh/? Is your console an n3ds or o3ds? Is there an otp.bin in SD:/a9lh/?

    Maybe the download was corrupt/incomplete or didn't transfer to the SD card correctly.
