    I just went along with my instinct and ignored the guide for A9LH , this was when A9LH was released, followed like 45% of the guide lol.

    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

    Did several versions of the Guide. Most went smoothly. Couple ended up being on Frankenfirm, but worked on second try.

    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

    No issues here. If the guide is followed correctly, the process is practically idiot-proof.

    You'd be surprised how many "idiots" have followed the guide and failed

    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

    In your closet, watching you clop
    i downgraded and installed cfw on my own n3ds when the "unsafe" downgrader got released.
    Everything went perfect

    EDIT: i also used the safer and updated method on 4 other n/3ds's
