    So i finally took the plunge By watching a video guide and following along ive never been so scared of a brick but as long as I followed along everything went smoothly. so now im a proud member of the a9lh master race. I really didnt think much of this small exploit at first but my anxiety pushed me I cant be stuck with an inferior method so I finally went through with it. After all the bricks I was scared but Ive come to find that its true "All bricks are from user error" If you follow the guide you are safe so dont fear those of you that are getting cold feet. At a glance this is just a Quicker boot method that never fails but its also a savior for those that love to fiddle mindlessly. A hardmod is no longer relevant and thats awesome. No more crappy glitch screens or freezing you power up and get what you want. The community is very helpful and i must say it never would have been possible without the ppl helping me. After some hours with a9lh I can say this is deffinatly worth your time and risk. Not only is this a cleaner loader but its the start of an entire new era in the 3ds modding scene so jump in and dont be afraid to lean on the community youll be ok if your cautious. My only complaints is the compiling and complicated tools i had to get used to a new way of things luckly i had st125 help me understand most of it and help me compile so a big thanks to him and the rest of the comunity for there help. Whats your impressions on a9lh?

    Working on finishing it on my 3rd 3ds (n3ds xl Red version), so far done my old black 3ds and my new black 3ds xl as well, its not really hard once you understand all the terms and are used to rebooting your way through homebrew fail loads and bugs. Patience is a huge key in this kinda stuff.

    The 100% boot was so worth it

    I have used both the online compiler and compiled it myself. Both ways work just fine.

    Worth it for sure. I was afraid of bricking too but followed the guide 100% everything went well. User error does account for a lot of those bricks. People downloading the wrong firmware files for example or they think a old 3ds xl is a new 3ds stuff like that.

    I got a little (read BIG) help from @FIX94 with this.
    It does look like a scary undertaking at first, but it was freaking worth it, my N3DS now immediately boots into emunand with about the same speed as a sysnand boot. And i am free to install everything i want without fear of destroying my 3DS..
