    Man this is all my fault, I was going into the browser when I realized that I forgot to rename Hourglass9 to start_Hourglass9.bin. So I pressed home to go to the home screen and it froze. I forgot to take the SD card out before I did that and now it is stuck on the screen showing to get back to the home menu. Please keep in mind this is an Old 3ds on 2.1.0 :( Do I turn it off and hope for the best...?

    That means that you have a9lh installed successfully, continue with the guide.

    Did you copy the luma binary to /arm9loaderhax.bin on the root? What happens if you hold select?

    you need to finish the guide and put the luma files on the sd card, root should have arm9loaderhax.bin than launch hourglass9 by holding the start button and restore nand.

    It's not staying on because it's not detecting arm9loaderhax.bin as r00t

    Ok now it booted to luma. Which is very weird because I just put my file back on again. But I will continue :D

    root of sd card should have the following.

    Folders

    3ds
    cias
    files9
    luma

    misc files

    arm9loaderhax.bin
    boot.3dsx
    ntr.bin ( if using NTR as well. )


    There is nothing weird about it, you simply did not have the files on the sd card.
