    So,I think we all have seen MANY post of users who bricked their 3ds.
    And the main problem ist of course,that they weren't following plailects guide.
    I saw people writing that they were following a Youtube guide instead of plailect's guide.
    There are many people who bricked because of using the wrong files or people who were trying to press the Powerbutton while downgrading to 2.(something).
    And the main answers were:,,I took to long,I didn't want to wait" or there were also people who wrote that they were trying to downgrade twice to 2.(something) because their games didn't work=result : Brick.
    So for everyone who is going to install A9LH please read carefully and be patient,I mean,Waithax is named like this for a reason.
    And follow 3ds.guide.
    It's pretty much the best website for getting A9LH and it's better than every other Youtube video so far.
    So please be carefull and read everything slowly and if you have question,just ask.
    Nobody is going to kill you If you have questions...

    So good luck for everyone who is going to install A9LH

    It's understandable that a youtube tutorial is easier to follow than our holy guide. For a newbie it looks very confusing tbh.

    Further point. If you guys (newbies wanting a9lh and romz) just wait a little longer, Plailect will update his method with fasthax.

    If people don't know what they're doing, they should wait for the most reliable guide to be updated. If you can't be bothered to wait, make sure you know exactly what you're doing before you do anything, and ask on the forums if you're confused.

    The problem is that newcomers are not sure which source is the most up-to-date and trusted. I remember installing RxTools in March 2016 even after A9LH was out lol. I don't even know about gbatemp till I bricked my o3ds and was looking for a hardmodder.

    The guide is wonderful, but waithax made me want to vomit because it took forever to initialize.

    I won't use youtube guide anyhow...

    I would say your guide isn't nearly as clean as 3ds.guide.
    3ds.guide is complete and very simple to use and basically holds your hand the entire time

    Ehmm,I don't think you're plailect but you're right,it's the fault of the people who weren't reading.

    There is a famous youtuber that made a tutorial with the new fasthax + safehax but forgot to delete his own otp from the files he shared.
    The result: hundreds of followers complaining about bricks

    Mine gives you a ZIP and steps. Follow the steps, don't do anything other than what's said and even people who are totally new to the 3ds scene can do it in less than 1 hour.

    This guy made his own guide, and people were using it before Plailect updated.

    Yes, and then people who have questions dont know what it was that they did and then brick trying to figure things out. 3ds.guide holds your hand just enough so you understand what you're doing, so you know whats going on in case it goes wrong.

    Plailect updated his a few hours after I posted mine (which started as a simple zip of the files I used because people weren't being able to use safehax (the cartridge "bug")). But he already had a beta of the update.

    Yours will become outdated quickly and end being the first thing that pops up instead of a guide everyone can contribute to.
    Also having zips will only make users use outdated tools
