    so i am on this https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax part of the guide but i can't get to the next step because on section 3 it says If you get a “Failed to mount CTRNAND” error, just continue to the next section
    I did get that error but after it says press any key to shutdown whenever i boot up again it goes back to the error screen.
    I'm sure i followed the guide correctly and i double checked each step so i don't know what went wrong.
    I really am in need of help with this

    Instead of making a new thread you should first post it in the 3ds noob paradise/ official lumA thread.

    Make sure Hourglass9 is in the /luma/payloads/ folder and that it's named "start_Hourglass9.bin". Also make sure you're booting up the 3DS while holding the start button.

    Remove the 'start_' and try again - you might get the luma3ds chainloader that way

    That's really all there is to check.
    1. /arm9loaderhax.bin from luma3ds
    2. /luma/payloads/hg9.bin from hourglass9

    You could try running chkdsk on the sdcard [sometimes the in/out needs a chkdsk run]
    Or rename hg9.bin to /arm9loaderhax.bin
