    I downgraded an 11.2 N3DS. Now I'm on the SafeA9LHInstaller part of Plailect's guide. I keep getting the "Error: otp.bin doesn't exist and can't be dumped". I've tried deleting and reloading the files from the guide multiple times. Does someone have an alternate method?

    Make sure you downloaded the correct files for N3DS and are following the portion of the guide for the N3DS, OTP is required for the O3DS.

    When installing A9LH, the guide branches between O3DS and N3DS, in one you visit a website, in the other you launch homebrew and enter safeA9LHinstaller.

    I'm following the safea9lhinstaller for n3ds. I have firm0.bin, firm0_100.bin, firm1.bin, payload_stage1.bin,
    payload_stage1.bin.sha, payload_stage2.bin, payload_stage2.bin.sha, and secret_sector.bin in the a9lh folder. Does it sound like I'm missing something?

    The zip has the 3ds directory, arm9.bin, arm9loaderhax.bin, arm11.bin, and SafeA9LHInstaller.dat.

    You downloaded the files for the old 3DS!!!!

    Download the ones for the N3DS (this one won't have arm9.bin or arm11.bin) and try again, gotta double check the guide and files or you are going to brick your $200 system....

    That was the trick, thanks. Just figured out how I was doing it wrong. Had the safe installer from when I was doing my o3ds, in preparation for doing a n3ds.
