    I'm currently considering if I should install A9LH ( using this guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki) to my New 3DS 10.7, but before I can decide, I have a few questions:
    1. Do hardbricks still happen with the current downgraders if I follow the guide correctly and use the right downgradepack or are softbricks the worst thing that can happen ?
    2. Do GBA and DS games still work on the 3DS after I installed A9LH or is it like Gateway ?
    3. Is there a way to remove A9LH if I want to remove it again for whatever reason ?

    1-hardbricks are very unprobable, the only probable ones are softbricks, and they are only probable with twl apps or gateway shit preinstalled
    2-yes, if you use open source a9lh installation
    3-yes, keep a 9.2 original sysnand backup

    Thank you for the answers !
    And should I format my 3DS to prevent softbricks ?

    Not yet, I´m still considering if I should take the risk of some kind of brick or should just let the 3DS as it is, since I own a second one which already has a CFW

    Go for it(If you feel that it is worth it ofcourse ;))... Worst case you have to hardmod or go to recovery mode and update

    So I tried and got a hardbrick...:cry:

    Edit:
    It happyly only was a softbrick, I somehow mixed up DPad and the other arrow... I somehow forgot to format, my 3DS had ambasador satus and twl apps and that´s why it seemed to brick... But it´s ok.

    Didn't you read plailect guide that ambassador 3dses and 3ds units with twl apps are susceptible to bricks?
    Oh well :(
