    So I tried installing a9hl on my n3ds using plailects guide on github. I got through the downgrading to 9.2 and creating emunand and everything was working fine. I got through downgrade to 2.1 and it worked fine. The trouble started when I got to Part 5 which is installing arm9loaderhax. I got to section IV which is copying Rednand to Sysnand. After that Whenever I boot it only goes to black screen. Im not sure if it is a brick because I can still boot into other things like hourglass9 and Emunand 9. Any help would be appreciated. I don't really want to go to lastest version. I'm not sure if there's anyway to get my n3ds back to 9.2 so I can start over again. Pls help

    Gambia, The
    Did you restore emunand_original.bin to sysNand? If you're still on 2.1 a blackscreen would be normal, because Luma can't boot 2.1 Firmware

    I followed the steps up to the point where it tells me to update CFW Sysnand however i can't boot to home menu.

    I didn't try it just kept following the guide and booted into the next program which was Emuand9

    Are you trying to boot with the SD card out?

    So even with the SD card in it just flashes the LED and turns off? If yes, do you have the arm9loaderhax.bin from Luma's archive in the SD card root?

    Are you sure you flashed emuNAND_original.bin and not sysNAND_original.bin? If you followed the guide correctly, emuNAND_original.bin should be a 11.0 image, sysNAND_original.bin should be 9.2.

    Make sure you have the arm9loaderhax.bin on the root, this is what happened to me, if you're using Luma3DS, download the latest release and paste the files to the SD Card~

    Attempt this but make a backup beforehand to take full safety measures.

    Yes, just restore emuNAND_original.bin using Hourglass9.

    I have a problem: So I finished installing a9lh and I have luma3ds working on the sysnand, basically im on section VI of this guidehttps://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-5-(arm9loaderhax) and the problem is that I need to make one final backup of my hacked sysnand BUT whenever I try to open OTPHelper it takes me directly to the CTR boot manager and therefore I am unable to make a backup, whats going wrong and can I fix this?

    Use Hourglass9/EmuNAND9/Decrypt9 to make a backup~
