    Hello, i followed the plailect guide 100% correctly, but when i pressed install in the safea9lhinstaller that i entered through the browser exploit in 2.1 firmware version it said:
    all checks passed
    press any button to shutdown.
    But after i tried to turn it on again, eternal black screen, no sound, nothing

    PS: it keeps the blue led on even without the sd card

    Even by following every step and understanding everything you can brick you 3DS some ppl will told you because of your SD, because you miss something, but nothing is perfect even A9HL installer.

    Did you use SafeA9LH installer newer than v2.0.3? If you did than you bricked your O3DS.

    I had the same symptom on mine but I used AfeA9LHInstaller v2.66 which was for the New3ds. I would try the safe restore key combos to see if you can revive it.

    I's on 2.1 firmware so no safe mode, the key combo doesn't work (tried it)
    I'll probably get a hardmod for it and restore the 9.2 backup then continue from there

    I ended up sending mine out to be hardmodded and waiting to get it back. Hopefully all the other entry points still work so I can reinstall A9LH when I get it back. There's a thread on here with trusted hardmodders in your region.

    did even more and NEVER had a brick ;-) Upps i had with OTPless on a new 3DS ONCE. no prob with hardmod soo.
    To "ban" the A9 cause of the chance you could brick... that needs to be deceided from each individual itself i guess....

    Do you have the arm9loaderhax.bin on the sd and if so can you view the luma settings?

    Did you do this on a old or new 3ds? I put a9lh on my old 3ds xl around the end of November and I ended up with no issues whatsoever.

    I have one question: did you even tried to lunch decryp9 or hourglass9? So you can restore the original nand. 2.1 have some problems sometimes when lunching with Luma, so if the 3DS started without power off, then you may were able to lunch decrypt9 and recover.
    I have to say it: this is untrue. It only fails due to user error or SD error afaik.

    Did you get any sort of diagnostic back on it? Like did they pull another nand dump and check if they could see something wrong?
