    What do you see on your screen when you turn the system on?
    Did you put your system into Sleep Mode or turn it off while you were on 2.1?

    Were you trying to install A9LH on a 2ds or new 3DS? If so you were at the ctrnand downgrade to 2.1?

    Are you sure you have arm9loaderhax.bin on your SD card?

    Talking Like This Is Very Annoying. No nand backup, updating a N3DS directly from 2.1 will equal a brick. Enjoy your paper weight !

    Without a nand backup you can't do anything. A hardmod won't resolve it, you may need a new motherboard.

    I mean we were trying to identify every step of what the OP had done but yeah 2.1 downgrade without a NAND backup is a major example of not following the guide.

    Try to boot the console and then take out the sd quickly after you've pressed turn on button. That worked for me.

    Oh whoops. I didn't read the title. But it looks like you are using a New 3DS? Sorry, you are bricked: [​IMG]

    I just don't understand how people fail to read a simple guide that has a warning in a big red box at the top telling you what not to do. You didn't backup your nand, you don't have a hardmod, you failed to read simple instructions, and now you are bricked.

    My condolences for your loss

    No. You can update normally on Old 3DS. The reason you bricked was that 2.1 is an Old 3DS firmware. The New 3DS is not meant to run on it. But the old 3DS should be fine.

    So It Thought My 3DS Was The Old Model? That Would Explain It Then! I Didn't Even Know My New 3DS XL Could Even Run O3DS 2.1.0-4E Until I Upgraded It That Is...

    Anything below 9.5 is o3ds firmware.
    O3ds is fine.
    2ds is also fine, but if you format at any point you won't be able to get passed initial setup
    N3ds bricks if updated directly.
