    I was setting up the a9lh on my 03ds. i got to the close to the end part of the guide where you have to finally update the 3ds through the settings as it said it was safe to do so. But, everytime i try to do it i get an occur during the update. i tried everything it said to do if i got an error such as restoring the nand and stuff, but it still keeps getting me an error. Can anyone help? thanks.

    Then it seems you don't have it and that's a good sign.

    Do you have a custom power off screen or a translated Home Menu?

    Have you done any modifications to the home menu or anything requiring arm9 access? (Requires you to be on 9.2/A9LH)

    I haven't seen this issue before

    Do you have any FIRM patches or DS flashcart whitelist patches?

    It is not something i recommend, but you can update by installing firmware cias. It works but i would have it as a last resort
