    Hello So I'm in the process of modding a Old 3ds XL using the LUMA+A9LH using the guide.

    I currently at the part where I have to install arm9loaderhax via going to the broswer. I type in the url into the address bar and then the screen freezes nothing is happen. I looked into that error and it stated to press select and then press any button to have it shutdown. It is still currently on at this time. froze on the broswer screen.

    Guess
    ok so you tried the power button correct if thats the case then let the 3ds die out due to the fact that it's and old 3ds I think you should be good but it's best to see whether other people think the same

    Clear your cookies and history then try again.If the problem still prosists then check your sd card reader and make shure your sd card is working properly.

    When it freezes, press "select" multiple times and see if it powers off.

    Do you have arm9.bin, arm11.bin and SafeA9LHInstaller.dat on the root of the SD card?

    I recently modded a 2ds and had an issue like the one you are having. Turns out I didn't have all the files I needed.
    Make sure you have all the files you need and try again. If that fails, clear off the a9lh files, re download them and try again.
