    Hi ,
    i've bought a used hacked new 3ds with menuhax and luma 3ds
    and i don't know from where i should begin and what i should ignore in the Plailect guide
    do i have to flash my sd card , do i need to reinstall homebrew launcher ? or do i just add the a9lh files and install them
    my sysnand is on 9.2.0-20E
    my emunand is on 11 something
    edit : there is also ironhax on my 3ds folder

    Don't ignore anything. The whole guide is done on your sysNAND and you have nothing installed to sysNAND yet. At the end, there will be an optional step for you to follow if you would like to move the data from your emuNAND to your sysNAND.

    Edit: if you read the text below the "get started" button, you will see:

    Heres one tip

    when the guide tells you to launch decrypt9 it won't tell you to use menuhax as a enterypoint (it will tell you to use a cart exploit instead) mainly because it can cause minor issues during the ctr transfer.What you can do however is right when you get into the hbl with menuhax you can uninstall menuhax first then proceed to decrypt9 once you exit the menuhax manager and you get back into the hbl.

    Yes otherwise you will have to reboot without the sd card after the ctr transfer.

    The very last prep step before installing arm9loaderhax uninstalls menuhax.

    Just follow the guide to the letter and you'll be golden. I'd recommend you ignore @Ominous66521 suggestion, and do what the guide says when it says it.

    It's when you start going "off script" that issues arise.

    Fun fact,The guide doesn't say to use menuhax since it can interrupt the tools within decrypt9.You only need it to get into the hbl anyway

    Only when you go to transfer your emunand which won't come up until much later during the whole process.

    Wait so you already did the ctr transfer to 2.1 and installed a9lh? That was rather quick.

    i am trying to install menuhax now and its telling me :
    do you want to override the detected system version ? normally using this will cause the sytem menu to fail to boot until the intended home menu version is installed
    do i choose yes ? is it safe ?
    sorry for the stupid questions haha
    edit : sorryjust read that i should decline

    There should be a option to uninstall it.Dont reinstall it.

    Edit-It should be the second option that says "delete"

    On
    Section III - ctrtransfer
    it says that i should Clear Home Menu’s extdata by navigating to the following folder on your SD card: /Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000/
    problem is i have two folders which one are they referring to
    Edit : deleted files from both folders hope its ok haha

    The folder where your sysnand is most likely.Quite possibly the one that has the less data on it will be the sysnand folder.
