    I've installed the A9lh on a 2ds. but i wanna do it on my N3DS XL. But I'm scared because i feel like it will be easier to brick. is it like the chances of the 2ds or 3ds? or are things much more different and easier to just brick?

    Every brick i have fixed was bricked during the 2.1 unbrick phase.

    Its not foolproof as they say. Shit just happens.

    it is pretty safe, like %90 of installs work. Most bricks come from not following the guide, not the tools. There is going to be a big update to placiets guide in a few days, so just wait! If you do brick, @vb_encryption_vb has very reasonable rates and does his job very professionally. A hard mod from him is about $65

    It's funny since the 2ds and the n3ds wasn't 2.1.0 in the first place which makes errors like having a big screen resolution for example.

    There is other factors other than not following the guide.

    Bad sd card, curroption of sending files from pc to sd card, etc. Software / hardware all plays in it. It's not fool proof 100%

    Even I have bricked consoles, and I've done over 100 hardmods now. So I know the guide all to well. Shit just happens.

    Yes - if any steps are different, it says so.

    Doesn't plaiSysUpdater check for the integrity of the update files before proceeding on downgrading to 9.2 or 2.1? I haven't had any bricks before and I have installed A9LH to 1 N3DS XL, 3 O3DS XL, and 8 O3DS'es.

    Are you seriously asking for a source from dark_samus3? :P He was one of the first who forked A9LH and AFAIK the first who created an updater for it.

    Do you have any information on what the new process is? Even if it's just a quick overview, I can fill in the gaps for myself. I have a large backlog of consoles to install a9lh on and am holding back for the new guide. (if there are new tools it requires that haven't been created yet, then that's a different matter of course).

    @astronautlevel had a theory on how it was done. I could link you to his and my discussion on this matter.

    I don't anymore then you do, besides it will be quicker, safer, and dosn't require an emunand or rednand, according to @dark_samus3
