    I am getting CFW on my brother's 2DS.
    I've CFW'd 3 other DS's, and they all worked great.
    However, this time i get an error message that states 'SigHaxed FIRM was not installed'.
    So i looked up fixes, and all of them state that I must have a file missing or put in the wrong spot.
    This is not the case, and i have checked and retried many times with no luck.
    I am on v11.2.0.35U
    Please Help.
    Thanks :D

    you're using safeb9s installer right? I have no clue what the issue is, but im making sure you're installing boot9strap and not plain old sighax.

    Try redownloading all of the files again.

    Check the sd card isn't corrupted/fake.

    Would you kindly post a screenshot of the root of your SD card and the "boot9strap' folder?

    I've used the sd card before. I have formatted several times with no results.

    Formatting isn't the best way to determine of a card is fake/damaged. Run it through this tool

    Your boot9strap.firm and boot9strap.firm.sha files may have been corrupted while you were copying them to the SD card. Re-download the latest release of Boot9Strap and copy both files to the SD card.

    I ended up buying a new SD card. It worked fine from there. Thank you for your help.

    Edit: SD card was ds card. My bad.

    For a new member with an error, you have exceptional grammar!
    The other ones make a lot of mistakes: 'hey i need help i think i accidentally briked my 3ds help omg'.

    To be clear for future readers, do you mean SD card?

    Edit: Oh hey, that was post #5,000.
