    Shouldn't it be possible to get the OTP in emuNAND?

    i mean, i downgrade the emuNAND to 2.1 and get the OTP here, instead of flashing it to sysNAND

    if it's not possible, why?

    If it was possible, it would have been done in OTPHelper instead of still needing sysNAND downgrade.
    The reason why it's not is that the OTP is locked very early during the boot process (except in early firmwares like 2.1 obviously), far before menuhax triggers so it's obviously not available either in emuNAND...

    Not possible
    Downgrade your sysnand. If it was it would have been done a long time ago...

    OTPHelper does all that automatically, just follow Plailect's guide exactly and you should be fine.

    OPTHelper is definitely safe. It checks everything that could be checked, so yes. It'll check hashes.

    yeah sure but i want to know if it checks hashes and the such, and if it does detect a mishash then what does it do?

    It does checks both before and after flashing sysNAND. Don't worry about it.

    being completely honest. What are chances that i brick even if i follow step-by-step the lastest guide?

    if it's just 0% then say it, i'd not blame you if anything happens

    Less than 3% from my inferences. There's no chance.

    two questions:

    how can i know if AuReiNAND is blocking FIRM 0 and FIRM 1 writes?

    and

    is AGB_FIRM pre-patched? or do i have to patch it myself? it'd be nice if i can just install GBA games from the get-go

    AuReiNand always blocks FIRM 0 and FIRM 1 writes, and AGB_FIRM is pre-patched.
