    Hi. :)

    I need your help, because I want to help a guy with problems.
    So, he stops after the 2.1 downgrade of the RedNAND, and a family member format his SD Card.
    Yeaaahhh. He lost all the files of One Click setup.

    So here my question :
    What is the files required to install arm9loaderhax exept otp.bin ?
    I will tell him to dump otp.bin via Internet Broswer, but what the other files form the console needed to install arm9loaderhax? :-)

    Thanks !

    I'm not sure I'm following... What firmware is the system on currently, and what files if any are still available?

    His firmware : 2.1
    His SD Card was formatted so he lost the otp.bin and all the others files to install arm9loaderhax.
    I want to know what is the fille dump in the One Click Setup exclude otp.bin.

    Are you even following the guide? You don't need to dump otp.bin first...

    Just run the SafeA9LH installer and install A9LH, it will dump otp.bin and install A9LH automatically

    Next time, please tell your friend to follow the guide :(

    But if he runs SafeA9LHInstaller without otp.bin in the a9lh folder this will not work !

    Did he run the one click setup yet? If not just follow the new guide starting after the 9.2 downgrade section. Make sure not to use old files. Grab current versions from Plailect's tutorial. Otherwise you risk a brick! If he DID already run the one click setup, things get a bit more complicated...

    What are you even watching, that's so freaking old. Guide has been multiple times after those time. Now you don't need to dump otp manually

    You're correct, you have to re-dump the OTP, so start from here in the guide, and then at the end you'll need to use a CTRTRANSFER to flash the 9.2 firmware since I assume you've lost the sysnand backup.

    What you need to do is run safeA9LHinstaller from the browser. Copy the arm9.bin and arm11.bin from the zip for the latest build of safeA9LHinstaller, along with the needed files to install A9LH.
    Since you are already on 2.1, you can start from part 3 of the new guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-3-(arm9loaderhax)
    There is even a section there for if you don't have a backup of firmware higher than 2.1

    Nope... here's the guide. You dump OTP at the start of section II via the web browser exploit.

    No not correct. You don't need otp.bin in the a9lh folder for safeA9LHinstaller when running from 2.1. It will automatically dump that for you while installing.
    You are SUPPOSED to run it without otp.bin in the a9lh folder as long as it is on 2.1 firmware, which OP stated theirs was.

    Yeah, when starting via http://dukesrg.github.io/2xrsa.html?arm11.bin it will fire off the OTP dump before starting safeA9LHinstaller, however safeA9LHinstaller alone launched any other way won't work without the OTP.

    Exactly, which is the way OP should do it because they are on 2.1. So like the previous people have mentioned there is no need to manually dump OTP because the installer will do it for them in 2.1. The guide you quoted, along with everyone else, shows that as the method to use.

    Yes. There will be a link for those who don't have a backup made before downgrading to 2.1, which you/they will probably have to follow.

    Yes, start at the top of part 3, and when he hits the start of section IV, make sure he knows to take the 9.2.0 ctrtransfer route

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Uh, I'm quoting "the damn guide".

    Or restore emunand_original.bin if you made the backup while doing the old guide. If you lost it with the other files, do the 9.2.0 ctrtransfer as said above.
