    where did I go wrong?

    The FBI stuff won't load up...

    It all seemed to be going smoothly,up until aroundSection III - Configuring Luma3DS of here: https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax
    After finishing this section, I pressed start to have it save and reboot like it instructs you to do. It didn't reboot though. It just stayed in a grayish dark screen until I had to turn it off.

    Earlier in the guide, it kind of scared me into creating a nand backup before I followed a part of the guide that stressed repeatedly the importance of nand backups. Then when I was about to do the CTR TRANSFER thing, it prompted me to do another nand backup, so I did. I'm not sure if that was my mistake. So right now I have two nandico backups on my mem card

    So I went back to the step before FBI injection, which i had skipped because I thought it wasn't meant for me given how it was worded, and I did that step. So now when I insert the SD card I used to actually follow the guide with, a 32gb micRo SD in a SD adaptor, it does boot but it doesn't load the FBI in the health and safety section. When I check my firmware version, it says 11.2.0-35u... so it's the same exact firmware it had when I bought it. Also, another strange issue right now, when I insert the SD card that came with the system, it won't boot up at all. I used a different SD card to follow the hacks.

    I did every single step of https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax up until Section IV Restoring the System. I initially skipped this part because I thought it didn't apply to me given how the text in the blue box was written. So I initially skipped Section IV and went straight to Section V Injecting FBI....

    Then it wouldn't boot up. I figured that's cause I skipped the previous step. So then I did Section IV Restoring the System up to Step 5. The rest of it seemed to be for people who's nand backups were 3.0.0 or 4.5.0

    okay, I made a mistake. I just didn't do the FBI injection correctly. So I did that and I followed the rest of the steps in the guide. How can I run emulators on thisthing now?

    umm, this isn't a new 3ds, it's a 2ds, and not powerful enough for retroarch.

    virtual console injection and genesis emu injection is the way to go here.

    (those 3d remasters of genesis titles have an emulator inside them. new games can be injected into it)

    the following are available

    1) nes injection (mostly works)
    2) GB(c) injection. works great too
    3) GBA injection (works almost perfect)
    4) tg-16 injection (not so compatible)
    5) Game Gear injection (works fine as far as I know, it's a simle system)
    6) genesis injection. compatibility is not perfct, but many popular games work.
