    So I bought a 2DS and everything was going great with the A9LH installation, until I got to the upgrade firmware step, so I go in, and I try to update my system from what I can only assume is Firmware 2.0 [The firmware from CTRTransfer] but everytime my system tries to update I get an error, can someone please help me?

    Don't update on a 2ds! Instead, restore the NANDMin.bin that should've been dumped when you did the CTRTransfer.

    Oh, so I shouldn't have overwritten my first nand?

    When you did the CTRTransfer, a NANDMin.bin should've been dumped. Restore that.

    I'll try, but I'm almost positive the one I made at the very beginning was overwritten, I wish the guide would have specified that you can't upgrade on the 2DS

    Check to see if it's in your /files9/ folder on your SD card.

    Ok so I did just that and got the black screen error I was getting before I did the CTR so the restore worked and AL9H and what not still works, what do I do now since rebooting back into CTR didn't work?

    Oh, I see where I messed up, I am so sorry for bothering you-- I just thought I royally screwed myself over and wasted money on this thing, thank you for helping me see that I simply put in the wrong CTR

    Sorry for the double post but I just wanted to make sure before I do anything else, now that I am on 9.2 do I upgrade like the guide says and continue onward?

    Since you have a9lh, you should be good to update.
