    I have a new 3ds XL, never hacked. Im on 11.3 USA

    Following the 3ds.guide i get to
    Installing boot9strap (Homebrew Launcher)

    And then
    Launch safehax from the list of homebrew

    Once I do this i get this error message:
    FAILED TO READ THE ARM9 PAYLOAD
    PRESS START TO EXIT.

    Where did I mess up? Did I miss a step?

    Thanks

    "7. Copy SafeB9SInstaller.bin from the SafeB9SInstaller.zip to the root of your SD card and rename SafeB9SInstaller.bin to safehaxpayload.bin"

    Did you make sure to do that?

    That worked! Thanks!

    Now when I install Freeshop its not showing as installed on my 3DS home screen. Any help with that one? I have tried the CIA and the QR code....

    Are you sure you didn't just miss it? It'll most likely fill up any empty slot on your home menu if there is one.
    I updated to the fork recently on my 3DS and it worked just fine, it did overwrite the older version though so it wasn't immediately apparent that something new had been installed.

    I have installed it 4-5 times already, all that appears on my home screen are "presents" that i cant unwrap, as silly as that sounds LOL

    If anyone else is encountering this issue, just go into friends and back out to menu. You can also just press home button so FBI doesn't close down but runs in the background as closing FBI after installing seems to cause the small issue.
