    I installed arm9loaderhax today. I successfully did part 4 of the guide on the GitHub, and got my otp, and followed part 5, step by step. when I got to the safea9hl installer in sysnand. Then, the app told me it installed successfully, and it told me to press any button to reboot. I did, and it rebooted with just the blue light on. then I tried turning it on again, unsuccessfully...help!

    Try replugging your sd card in? That occasionally happens for me. If the blue light is on it is not bricked

    You sure you have all files in your SD card that the guide told you to put in there? The aurei folder, all the firmware files, and armloaderhax.bin in the root?

    Safe installer has checks for the OTP.bin...so I'd say a full on brick seems unlikely..can you boot into any of the payloads, and do you have the arm9loader bin file for your cfw on the root of your SD card?

    I tried it, and it told me the message about how it would brick my system

    It gave me the warning (I didn't do it) so does that mean its NOT bricked?

    what options did you check? aureinand will block the firm 0/1 from being updated for a9lh so your good to update or inject ur emunand into ur sysnand if thats what you want
