    Hello, so I've been following the plailect guide for my old 3DS (eu). It's been fine all the way to the preparation steps for installing the arm9loaderhax, where my SD card suddenly decided that I'm not allowed to access it anymore (corrupted).

    The good news is, I've done a backup of the files9 folder before this. The bad news is, I have no idea which files I need from the previous steps in order to proceed with said arm9loaderhax.

    I assume the steps forward would be this: Format the SD card, do the preparation steps towards the arm9loaderhax according to the guide. But is that sufficient? Will I run into issues with not having any files from previous steps?

    My old 3DS is currently on 2.1.0 firmware from the ctrtransfer bit of the guide.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Update: For all intents and purposes, this has been solved!

    Isn't it suggested to use a different cluster size? (I think it says 52K?) And make sure you're using MBR.

    Well just to be sure copy files9 on the sd as well, you'll need to put aeskeydb.bin and fbi there anyway

    I've done just that from logical reasoning, thanks. About to pop the card back into the 3DS now. (exciting!)
