    I already installed A9LH on 3 consoles,but this time, following the Plailect guide, i noticed that it didnt say to format sysNAND. Im missing something or its right?
    Thanks.
    EDIT: Nevermind. I already saw it.

    unless you have dsiware, it's okay to skip system format.
    but I(from my personal experience) advise you to do a system format, as doing so reduces the chance of a softbrick

    I will format, of course. But right to DG it will give me any problem. And i saw bricks with tinyformat. It will give me any problem?

    It's hard to get bricks with TinyFormat.

    do a system format throught system settings, just to be safe.
    And if you do a system format, your softbrick chances will be minimal

    If you are referring the the N3DS softbrick after a 9.2 downgrade, it's definitely not caused by DSiWare. My 9.9 N3DS softbricked but never had any DSiWare installed at that time, while my brother's 10.3 had Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition installed (transferred from a DSi) and all went good.

    there's a chance of softbrick, not 0% or 100%, just a chance
    Definition of chance
    3.
    a possibility or probability of anything happening:

    Uhm... Earlier, you said this:
    And I was specifically targeting the "it's okay to skip system format if you don't have DSiWare", since it is plain wrong. It is NOT okay to not format a N3DS before downgrading if you don't have DSiWare, as that is not the reason for it soft-bricking.

    I know what chance means, thank you, but I didn't talk about "chances", nor implied that you saying that "formatting the console reduces chances of soft-bricking" was wrong. You completely missed the point of my reply (or deliberately chose to ignore it).:)
