    where the potential goes to zero
    I just successfully installed A9LH on an N3DS (sysnand 9.0.X U) using the guide (beginning with part 4, since I already had menuhax/emunand) but sometimes OTPHelper black screens and does not start. I was launching the current release of OTPHelper from the Homebrew Menu, following the instructions in the guide. There were no other errors or funny things and everything else worked perfectly on the first try. But OTPHelper not starting 3-4 times in a row was a bit scary.

    Before this, I followed the guide for an menuhaxed/emunand O3DS (sysnand 9.2.X U) and everything including OTPHelper went perfectly (also beginning from part 4 of the guide.)

    Happened to me too when passed to A9LH i think menuhax is responsable because crashes very often.

    It's normal. It's the Catch-22 of the exploits and HBL itself. Sometimes it works great, other times the 3DSX can fail 3-4 times in a row. Luckily once you're on A9LH, you won't have to deal with much of it anymore.
