    I recently found my old A9LH 3ds with nothing in its sd card. I still have NAND, OTP, and original arm9.bin backups. I have been trying to install Luma3DS with A9LH, but every time it just won't work. I have been trying so long now I need help. Someone please help me I have followed all the guides, but nothing seems to work...

    No I didn't find the SD Card at all. What I said was the honest truth. Also I said my 3DS already has A9LH payload injected into the NAND. Is there any payload that can redirect me to SysNAND? Or can I get some help organizing the files so it can work properly?

    I really don't know... do you have a backup of your SD card?
    You can try to put tall the file son a other SD card and put it on your 3DS.

    Make sure you have hourglass9.bin in your luma payload folder. Then rename it to button you use_hourglass9.bin and press said button upon starting system, and restore your nand

    If I do that and have a 9.2 NAND can I install A9LH hax with Luma3DS without downgrading since I already have my OTP.bin?

    As long as you have the OTP you should be fine.

    So you already have A9LH installed? Redownload luma and make sure you have all the required files. Consult part 5 of Plailect's guide for what files to put where. You can ignore the A9LH installation files.

    Check if you have a9lh folder in your SDCard root
    it should have:
    - firm0.bin
    - fim1.bin
    - otp.bin
    - payload_stage1.bin
    - payload_stage2.bin

    Inside the a9lh folder

    ^ This guy knows whats what. You need to install LUMA. Arm9loaderhax.bin needs to be on the root. Once you can boot into the home menu I would try maybe a system restore and see if that doesnt build all your folders etc? Its not like you have any games installed since the SD card is gone.

    Ok explain. I definitely didnt understand her comment, or how it helps the OP

    Between insane and insecure
    Restoring the NAND can only do so much. If the original Nintendo 3DS folder is not there, then your games won't be there either.

    Agreed. He probably already has a functional nand, he just needs to boot into it
