**Please know that I am not creating a thread to ask how to do the update, I just don't know how to get around my SD issue** Hello all, I have been out of the scene since I successfully A9LH'd my N3DS, and am now trying to get to B9S, but I am in a uniquely bullshit position. My SD is corrupted and I am unable to copy files TO it, but I can copy files FROM it. It works without issue in my 3DS. Here goes: I have an N3DSXL running A9LH, on 11.4.0. I would like to update to B9S, however my microSD is somewhat corrupted, in that it works without issue in my 3DS, but I am unable to copy files to it with a computer. I get the semaphore timeout error. I was, however able to copy my JKSV backups from the SD, which was a relief. I am thinking of doing one of two things. A): Create a new install of B9S on another microSD, (will it be possible for me to do a fresh install from 11.4.0, using the OOThax method?). Then upon successful installation, I will format the corrupted, larger microSD, and copy the contents of the newly B9S'd SD to it. From there I will install FreeShop and re-install all of my games, and then use JKSV (please tell me there is nothing stopping it from working on B9S) to import all of my backed up saves. The other option; B): I continue to use AL9H, and do not update the firmware past 11.4.0, as I cannot update Luma, and wait until my online functionality ceases, and/or my 3DS bricks, and then cry and curse the gods. TL;DR: I don't know what to do ;( I will be eternally indebted to any of you talented folks on this forum willing to grant me some advise. Thank you..
