    Is there a way I can install A9LH luma on this? Can anyone link me to a good guide? Thanks

    Thanks. I'd seen that before posted round here, but I didn't know where to find it. Cheers

    OK, so I've started the guide with something called "soundhax". The guide says to "Go through all of the bird tips", but I don't really understand what this means? I've opened 3ds sound, but I don't see any tips... Does anyone know?

    iirc, that is only for when you first open sound. If you opened it in the past then it doesn't apply.

    OK thanks. I never opened it before, but it's my nephews 3DS. I guess he looked at them all before......I dunno

    OK, so I launched homebrew launcher. I notice it says "For now, connecting your device to the internet is REQUIRED to continue after the 2.1.0 CTRTransfer.".

    If I connect to the internet, won't the 3DS automatically update the firmware though?

    No it will just nag you to update, which you can cancel

    OK, so I've got to the stage where I launch safehax, but I just get a black screen that says "pm init failed", then I press start and it returns to the homebrew launcher...

    Yes, I launched it, and it looked like it was finished, I think it said "successful" in a wall of text and "done" at the end of it. I then pressed start and it returned me to the homebrew launcher, then I launched safehax and "pm init failed"....

    Will do, thanks

    Same thing. First SD was 64GB, now this one is 4GB. Both formatted with guiformat fat 32 32kb clusters.

    I think it is similar to what these guys are talking about. I don't know how to get it to prompt me for an update, so that I can deny it to do so...

    When the guide says "Copy the 2.1.0 .bin and .bin.sha from the CTRTransfer .zip to the /CTRTransfer/ folder on your SD card", do you think I should rename it from "2.1.0-4E_ctrtransfer 03ds.bin" to plain old 2.1.0.bin? They didn't say to do so in the guide, but I'm at a loss here....

    Nope, copy them without renaming, if it's not already done.

    So is there any other way to do this? Like, an older way, or something? I really have followed everything out to the letter, time and time again, with the same result. At this point, I'm thinking maybe this CTRtransfer thing is fairly new, and it hasn't been tested much on old3ds with my FM version?

    Yes, every time. I never freezes. I can always press start to go back to homebrew launcher on both udsploit and safehax

    Try to boot into recovery mode (turn on the 3DS while holding A+R+L+Up(DPad), BUT DON'T DO THE UPDATE, CLICK CANCEL, it will erase update data that has already been downloaded into your console, and then try again (if it's the same problem as the link you provided above, it should work).

    Thanks. I did that, but it's still the same. I don't think there is an update already downloaded
