    ive gotten to

    https://plailect.github.io/Guide/installing-arm9loaderhax section IV

    my NANDmin.bin fails to restore

    and when i try to update the 3ds in system settings, it gets close to the end and fails (its japanese so i dont know what its saying)

    so im kind of stuck on 2.1.0-4J, any ideas?

    The ctrnand file that you've downloaded could be corrupted. Try redownloading it.

    Alternatively, you could try taking a long route:
    -Set up emuNAND using emuNAND9;
    -restore your nandmin.bin to emuNAND using emuNAND9. If it still doesn't let you restore it, then the your NAND backup or your SD Card is probably corrupted.
    -change Luma settings to boot emuNAND instead of sysNAND.
    -update your emuNAND to the latest version. Use TinyFormat to reset it afterwards.
    -back up your emuNAND using full-size option (not min size)
    -try restoring your emuNAND backup to sysNAND with Hourglass9 (keep A9LH option).

    Also, try restoring it from a different SD Card. Format it beforehand. Then. copy just the "luma" folder (with Hourglass9/Decrypt9 payload) and "arm9loaderhax.bin" file to it. Make an empty folder named "files9". Copy your NAND backup to that folder and try restoring it.
