I've done it several times, smooth installation every time. All about just following steps precisely.

I followed a YouTube video a long time ago, he thought it was necessary to start from zero so I lost the installed games, i only save the gamesave of Pokemon shuffle because it was the only one worth it, at first I tried to do a backup of my SD, but it was corrupted along with Pokemon shuffle, when I installed a9lh, my SD got corrupted right before the ctr transfer, so I copied the necessary archives, even I change the adapter and the SD I experience corruption problems, the funny thing was when I copy my SD backup I realized it was an older copy, so I transfer 20 gigas again, I never had these problems with hdd or USB sticks about the corruption problems, it wasn't cfw related but a bit annoyed, when I modded a friend's 3ds I didn't experience any problem even with the same sd and the same adapter, I have some write issues with it though, so right now I do wireless transfer, I have a o3ds

I think it stems from ppl speed reading through it. Slow and steady whens the race in this aspect.

So many people just google "how to hack a 3ds" or "how to get free 3ds games" and follow the first guide they can find without thinking of the risks

5 times. 4 went perfectly, only my new 3ds xl one ran into some little problems, which I fixed easily.

I wanted to hack my 2ds for the heck of it, I had no idea what I could do when I hacked it, but having Rooted 7 different phones now, I knew how to approach hacking a device. Wanting to hack my 2ds is what led me to this site actually

I heard that! Did my 17th one a few weeks ago. Never have had an issue. Got the steps committed to memory. Glad it doesn't take as long as it used to. o3o
yeah after I practiced on my 4 consoles I got confident enough to do it on other people's consoles
17! Wow.
