following the guide to update from a9lh to b9s and i'm getting this error.
help!
Did you actually check the lower screen? What does it say? Were you following 3ds.guide? Do you have an Old or a New 3DS?

You may be missing a file required for the installation process. Double check each step and ensure that you have every file listed in the guide in the right location.

Double check that you have boot9strap.firm and boot9strap.firm.sha in your boot9strap folder on your SD card. If you have a New 3DS you'll also need secret_sector.bin in that same folder.
Pretty sure i have it but let me check again

I have been following the guide, but when I scan the QR code and follow the instructions, it gets to sigHaxed FIRM not installed and stops. I've made sure that I've got the right b9s files in the b9s folder; how to I fix this?

Sorry for the necro.
