    Gives me this screen after 20 minutes under the arm11.bin link as mentioned in this tutorial (When I could have just replaced it like a dumb). Froze, then when I try to turn it on, the error message as stated in the top video is a nightmare to look at as it is the only thing I see.

    Tried to do a whole bunch of options. Rebooting, taking out the wifi card (not sure why), anything else that I can do under this highlighted comment with the username "X0Shaymin0X". I followed that tutorial exactly as stated and I can't seemed to get it working.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Did you try booting into recovery by holding A+R+L+Up(DPad) on boot?

    Because it has been flickering with different colors. Don't know, been doing that since I tried to install the arm11.bin thingy via the URL the YTer mentioned.

    If booting with SELECT doesnt work after putting Luma payload on the SD, im sorry to say you that you must hardmod your console and restore the NAND.

    PS: What happens if you remove the SD @MeepDerp ?

    Between insane and insecure
    Your first mistake was following a youtube video. Your second mistake was asking for help on youtube video.
    Are you able to boot into recovery mode? And seriously, stop following youtube videos, that's how you end up with a brick. We have guide that is always up to date and well tested

    Expect more of these now that we have hax for 11.2. User errors abound.
