    Two bricks has already been reported from SigHax Installer 0.2

    Just curious, is it actually a sighax installer? Or is it just the boot9strap installer from 3ds.guide but buggier?

    It is a sighax installer
    3ds.guide doesn't use sighax, it uses Boot9Strap

    Between insane and insecure
    Considering these are unknown errors, I am going to have to agree with not using it. Bricks aren't something news, but it's extremely worrisome when they are caused by unknown reasons.

    And in this quantity, 8/14 with SigHax Installer 0.1, 3/4 with SigHax Installer 0.2.

    I've explained that in the OP, there's no chance of user error.

    Sooo 3ds.guide doesn't use sighax and 3ds.guide is safe? I assume soon sighax will be implemented when it's safe? What's the difference between the two though.

    3ds.guide uses B9S and is safe.
    I doubt it will be implementing SigHax, as B9S is better than SigHax.

    I was being sarcastic.
    But for a thing which overwrites fw this isn't too surprising. There will always be a brick chance.

    Ah alright.
    And yes, but my point is there's a less than 1% chance of bricking when using B9S, and 11 out of 18 people who installed SigHax bricked.

    That's because B9S injects into boot process and boots from SDCard, Sighax boots changed firmware. That's a big difference if you ask me.

    For some, it's worth it. It's 100% true CFW and some might risk it, some might not.
    But once it's installed, no reverting back.

    The problem I see with it is what you just said: no reverting back. Now, you can update the CFW by just reinstalling sighax, but each time that is a risk.
