    Sounds like more of a hardware problem than anything, try backing up your NAND then restoring an older one to see if it keeps freezing.

    This has nothing to do with a9lh, I am almost certain it is a hardware problem.

    You can restore any backup as long as you remember to select (Keep a9lh) when restoring it.

    I've had an issue with my top screen creating a square that freaked out with rainbow colors after installing the update for Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars, after deleting it it was fine. Could be a weird problem. Try uninstalling something you recently installed if it is a recent issue.

    Actually this is a good advertisent for a9lh - probably caused by a bad CIA or somesuch, and Decrypt9 on boot means he can restore working backups very easily.

    I had the same issue with my O3DS with A9LH/Luma on 10.7 Sysnand, and I found that it was possibly due to a faulty SD card. It all went back to normal after I replaced it with a new one.
    However, I had also restored an old Sysnand before that (after noticing the crashes but before the SD replacement), so it's possible that could've fixed it.

    Do you use Emunand it could just be your SD corrupted a bit and simply needs a reformat through D9.

    Have you taken the console apart or dropped it? Also, try resetting screen calibration.

    Screen recalibration can be done through System Settings, under 'Other Settings' near the end as '3D Calibration'.
