    So, because updating your system with brickway removes arm9loaderhax, I decided to make this Tutorial. This Tutorial explains how you can restore a NAND Backup after you lost arm9loaderhax on updated sysnand.

    First, some basics:
    We do this by injecting Sudoku with dsiwarehax into ds WiFi connections. You may ask: "Why can't we just install a cia?". Well without CFW you don't have signature checks and you can't start it. I tried this injecting method with disabled signature checks in cakes cfw and it worked. You can access the ds connections by using a WiFi compatible ds game (such as Mario kart ds). I recommend everyone to follow this tutorial. It might save you when Nintendo removes arm9loaderhax somehow.

    I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BRICKS. MAKE A NAND BACKUP BEFORE STARTING THE PROCESS!!! WHEN YOU FOLLOW THE TUTORIAL CORRECTLY, YOU CAN'T BRICK. DON'T BE AN IDIOT.

    What do you need
    -A 3DS with arm9loaderhax installed
    -GodMode9 already set up
    -This Compiled version of FWTool from @zoogie https://mega.nz/#!89F1FQbS!sdMH84d3MBst49OnNxeUjqU3EpZnQG2bdujlCaeieys
    -The decrypted sudoku nds and the save. Because this is copyrighted stuff, I've uploaded it on dat iso site. The thread name is "Sudoku decrypted NDS and dsiwarehax save".

    Installation

    Restoring the NAND

    Welp I didn't knew about that. I can't change the title, which sucks.

    You need a bought game to do a system transfer.

    Does this mean we can actually do this for free?

    Yes, you can do that for free. WiFi connection doesn't check the signature.

    Nice. Someone did a proper guide for this. I was thinking about doing it thanks to metroid maniac's guidethrough and put it up. But yours works marvellously. Thanks. :) Will be testing this on one of my spare o3ds's

    Thanks, I didn't know about the guide. I planned to release it a few weeks ago but I had no time. Whatever, two guides are better than one :D.

    It is applicable for anyone,really. You'd just have a way of getting back to cfw if by any case your firm protection failed or lost a9lh.

    This would be your way back to cfw without buying/system transfering a dsiwarehax or paying for a hardmod.

    Update without FIRM protections (like with gateway's sysnand mode, o3ds looses a9lh, n3ds should brick).
    Apparently, just USE the 3ds without a FIRM protected CFW (even if you've previously updated with them on) on 11.3, it seems to wipe the firm partitions upon boot, leaving you with stock firmware. (in theory, trying out cakes/corbenik with firm protections set to off temporarily should remove a9lh by nintendo's new 11.3 firm partition wipeout...)

    I believe other than that there have been no mentions of accidental wipeouts of a9lh.

    If you install this the DS wifi connection app will become sudokuhaxv0 and let you use FWtool to restore a NAND dump with a9lh already installed, and apparently this survives updates.

    What if you need to use the DS wifi for some reason though and don't have the wifi network added already?

    Unless you're using alt-wfc there would be no need. As all the official servers are down permanently. Not that many people use alt-wfc regularly for it to be an issue, i believe.

    You can't use the WiFi service because it is down but you can use any online game (Mario Kart ds) to configure. The WiFi connection is just a copy and pasted file from a game.
