    so i installed A9LH and LUMA following the 3ds.guide tutorial and was just curious if there was a way to remove A9LH and go back to the OFW from nintendo with no hacks on my 3ds, how to do that, and if i did go back to OFW without hacks, would i then be able to reinstall A9LH from my saved NAND or would that not be possible because of the 11.3 update. if that is possible, how would i go about doing that? this is mostly hypothetical, because im curious, and i cant seem to find any info out there because why would anyone want to "un-downgrade". also im not even sure how to ask the question because it seems like a weird request, but even in theory is it possible to do that? any answers would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

    also i was looking into the hardmod method, would that be a way to put my old firmware NAND back onto my 3ds if i remove A9LH or would that be a different version of NAND all together?

    Easiest ways are restoring the NAND backup made during the install with decrypt9. Or using safeA9LHinstaller to remove A9LH.

    thx! thats very helpful, though if i updated to the most recent OFW after i removed A9LH, would i be able to then reinstall A9LH, or would it be the same as if it had no hax and was on the current firmware?

    If you removed A9LH, then updated to the latest OFW. You basically fucked up.
    The only way to re-install A9LH then is to restore your exploitable NAND backup (like the 11.2 backup made during the A9LH install) through hardmod or this method
    Otherwise all kernel exploits have been patched out. As well the original hardmod/dsiware hacks have been patched out due to the NAITVE_FIRM requirement added to the homemenu. Which locks out any NAITVE_FIRM below 11.3
