    So, I'm new to this kind of stuff. I downloaded Soundhax. I have a 2DS with OFW 11.2.0-35E. I have found many tutorials on YouTube and have been looking at the guide that Plailect made. I am stuck on Step 3 where you boot fasthax and safe. After I boot into Decrypt9, I press select and insert the SD into my PC. I use an 8GB SD. So then, in the guide, I have to download the torrent for your region and transfer them to a "files9" folder on your SD. I have done that. When I reinsert the SD into the 2DS and press B, I go to SysNand Options, CTRNAND transfer and Auto CTRNAND transfer. Then press the button combos and it says that it can't find the files. I then go back into the menu and find out that next to Work directory, there's no "/files9" appearing unlike in everybody's videos. HOW THE HECK DO I FIX THIS?!!?!??!!?!?

    You need to make a folder on the root called files9 then place the files in it

    I read there is no files9 directory so you seem to misunderstand

    Then something was done wrong. How about a screenshot of your SD card? Make sure files9 is on the root of your SD card and not in the 3ds folder.

    Try restarting the system and then loading Decrypt9WIP again now that you have a /files9 directory on your SD card.

    I've tried doing this a couple times now. I'll have to send the shots tomorrow because I have school.

    There is! But Decrypt9 isn't detecting it.

    Did you actually download the files from the torrent or are you putting the .torrent in the folder.

    That looks correct - have you tested your card with H2testw? Files disappearing is a symptom of a fake card.

    files9 folder is there, its content looks fine matching your Euro console.

    Retried? post error screenshot if any.

    Dont use video guides, only use text guide 3ds. guide .

    I am using Plailect's guide though!! I'll try and take a picture of it later. Something about no usable image.
    I'll have to do that when I get home. However I use an SDHC with my 2DS and I just wanted to ask if that's fine? Because I bought a new SD adapter on eBay two days ago. It should be arriving at my house today. I took the shots on mah phone.

    Or recreate that folder files9 and copy those 2 files in and retry.

    If that don't work format the sd card and retry, sometimes technology is clunky
    Re-Download the files if necessary
