    Quick question about the updated A9LH install guide (https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki), i'm a little confused: If i already have Luma3ds, a sysnand 9.2.0-20U, FBI injected into H&S, a way to get into homebrew launcher and decrypt9WIP can i skip from part 1 to Part 2 - 2.1.0 ctrtransfer? I stopped the guide after injecting FBI into H&S

    Yes. You would start here, at the ctrtransfer stage. Unless you already have A9LH, you need to grab your OTP keys. For this, you need to be in system version 2.1 (or 2.2, but let's just say 2.1 only for the purpose of this guide). The ctrtransfer transfers a 2.1 image to your system, so you can grab your console-specific OTP key to be able to install A9LH.

    Sorry to piggyback on your thread but im a tad confused on the guide too. At what point in the guide does Luma install? It tells you to download the zip but only take one bin from it?

    Edit 1: Ignore this - i'll make my own thread, with blackjack and hookers

    Edit 2: Ignore the last one - only 1 thread per 24 hours and i used my quota to say hello!

    You don't "install" Luma, per se. You put the Luma3DS armhaxloader.bin onto the root of your SD card in part 3 of the new (current) guide. Once you have completed the guide, your 3DS will autoboot that file. After that, for all intents and purposes, Luma3DS is just the armhaxloader.bin file.

    In the older, previous, guide you would be using Luma3DS a lot sooner, and launching it via the HomeBrew Launcher. However that is no longer relevant.

    Lastly, you would typically ask these questions in the 3DS Noob Paradise Thread.

    Believe it or not, that .bin is all of the code for Luma! After you installed a9lh as your entrypoint, it loads the code for luma and that's all you need to do to install it.
