Hey tempers,

After a two week vacation to Sweden (yay) I've come back to a GBATemp buzzing with a new arm9loaderhax guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

My current N3DS runs Menuhax With an EmuNand on 11.0.0-33E, SysNand on 9.2.0-20E. All on Luma3DS.
I have FBI injected into H&S on EmuNand
I've installed menuhax ages ago and am moderately satisfied with it, however now that the new guide is out I'd love to install Arm9loaderhax. The bootrate on my menuhax setup is just too low (3/10) and turning it on takes ages.

Could anybody lend me a hand and explain to me where I should start? If you need information provided, just ask. I'm happy to help you help me!

Short version:

1) run decrypt9 from menuhax
2) do the ctrnand inject thingy
3) run the a9lh arm11.bin from browser
4) inject emunand to sysnand

Keep in mind this is very general. Just follow the guide. I did it a few hours ago and it's really simple.

Thanks for clearing some things up for me!
Basically just follow the guide. Try it first and if you have a specific question about a step, ask.
Will do, thanks!

Since you are on 9.2 with working browser start here:
https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Homebrew-Launcher-(Browser)
(There is a special section if you are between 9.0 and 9.2)


I believe you want to keep your games and stuff? That means you also need to make a backup of your emunand and sysnand in Part 2 and inject emunand instead of the sysnand one(Part 3 Section IV Step 2-4).

Since my Sysnand is on 9.2 already, I can skip this right? https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-1-(Decrypt9) @Quantumcat

right, you can start with part 2 https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-2-(2.1.0-ctrtransfer)

all you need is the ability to boot into homebrewloader through menuhax (if you use ctrbootmanager, rename that boot.3dsx and get a fresh boot.3dsx for homebrewloader from the homebrew starter kit. then just follow the guide step by step, reading every sentence.
i also found it helpful to highlight whatever step i was at currently to not get lost

also, if you got a few big games on emunand you dont really care about anymore, before you start this would be a good time to delete them to speed up the emunand to sysnand transfer at the end. moving your whole sd card to pc and back to sd is pretty much the step that takes the longest now

I also have FBI and some DSiWare apps on sysNAND. Can someone confirm that the CTRNAND transfer is safe even with those apps on sysNAND?

EDIT1: Well, right now i'm doing the proccess. I will inform if i got some brick or something.

Alright, I've ran into my first issue.
It says here on step one that I should put files (ctrtransfer.bin and .sha) in the /files9/ folder:https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-2-(2.1.0-ctrtransfer)
However. There is no such folder present on the SD card. What should I do? Or is this completely the wrong point to begin? Seeing as I already have menuhax installed I don't see a reason to do that again.

Create the folder, then place the files into it. Decrypt9 (The latest one) will automatically seek the folder and use it if exist.

Well, i downgraded and it booted sysNAND 2.1 in the blink of an eye. Will keep informed!

On step 3 it tells me to go to "CTRNAND Transfer", then "Auto CTRNAND Transfer". I'm unable to find either.

Download the latest version of Decrypt9.
https://github.com/d0k3/Decrypt9WIP/releases/tag/20160823

Then replace the Homebrew Launcher's Decrypt9 with this one.

Well, now i'm a proud owner of A9LH, but something odd happend:

Luma can't boot if it doesn't have a firmware.bin on the /luma/ folder, but, that shouldn't be neccesary for a sysNAND > 4.x? How odd...

Now i need to erase the emuNAND from the SD and clean all that MenuHax mess.

After some hard work I've finally managed to succesfully install A9LH on my N3DS. Thanks for all your help guys, especially @Autz !

No problem dude c;

Notice that you may ended with a no_screeninit arm9, which means you cannot run some cool apps like Bootanim9 :C . At least i can't run it.

Well, I need to learn about the new guide.

Just 1 question : I have my own N3DSXL (Sys11) on A9LH+Luma3DS, AND another N3DSXL (A friend) on 11.X legit firmware. Can his N3DSXL be downgraded using my N3DSXL, with the transfer thing?

Yes it can as long as they are both from the same region.
