I'm making this because I've seen a rising tide of noobs (like me) beign affraid of installing arm9lh in their systems, caused by the reports of bricks from people that failed to perform the method of installation. People that was sucessful in said task are usually too happy or simply not interested sharing their experiences. I've only installed the exploit in my 2 consoles without a single problem and I can say the guide works greatly and that it's chances of causing bricks are very close to 0... Why?, I remember when I did my first console exploit following the Plailect's guide BUT with adapted tools for extreme noobs that some guy from Internet did (Like cover up options in Hourglass9 that should not be touched, boot selectors only booting to the next step, etc) and obviously all the process went fine. With my second 3DS I decided I will go alone and follow the standard guide, I prepared my entry point and started, I must clarify I'm a very methodic person and I tend to check every step 3 or 4 times before performing any task because I haver personal troubles with my capacity to focus, in the end I realized I did several mistakes and had many logic failures and that beign calm and focused in the process saved my N3DS' ass many times. As examples, I can remember my oothax failed to boot after downgrading and I was getting too upset until I remembered I didn't reinstall the adequate payloads for 9.2, also, when I was about to install arm9lh I could not find the application on the Homebrew Laucher despite I extracted adequately the .zip, after further inspection I realized that by a mouse mistake my .zip estracted in the luma folder and not in the 3ds one. Those are the more clear and unharmful mistakes I can remember and then I think about the people performing the method that can commit very unfortunate mistakes, people without patience that will perform a critical step without verify if the previous was sucessful, people without knowedge to identify a sign of a mistake in a critical step, people not realizing some explots are unstable, etc. I really think the vast majority of bricks are human mistakes and that is damaging the perception of a great exploit and the greatest guide. I think that not because I was sucessful without problems but because when I was managed by simple tools my mistakes were none but when I had to manually follow instructions I commited many mistakes. The exploit is great as the guide is.
