    i want to install it on my 3DS but i have some questions before, i was reading and re-reading the guide several times before start

    1: i already have an old version of FBI injected on my sysnand, it doesn't appear on home menu it only appear when i boot into sysnand with "rx mode" like rxtools did but i don't know how luma does it XD, i have HS backup, i need to inject the backup before start or i can just skip the fbi injection part?

    2: My sysnand is on 9.2 if i do CTRtransfer the browser will still work? because i see some people saying the browser crash or something on 2.1.

    3: on OLD3DS i can update 2.1 directly to 11.2 (after install a9lh) without problem? Considering that they are two versions very distant, not without some problem.

    4:the 3ds don't boot on 2.1 with sdcard? if yes, why?

    5: Safea9lhinstaller did everthing for me? like he extract the otp and install a9lh automatically?

    probably i have more questions that i don't remember now but one "last" question is, what brand of SDcard(32gb) do you recommend using?

    1. You don't need FBI to install AL9H. However it's recommended to update it to the latest version.

    2. Browser should work fine on 2.1 if you don't do stupid things.

    3. Yes, BUT BE SURE YOU'RE IN LUMA or else the exploid will be deleted.

    4. Has to do with theme data in the SD card, just delete the file the guide tells you.

    5. It should, when it reboots just hold Select to find out.

    6. Sandisk or something else, just avoid those cheap ones they sell in supermarkets.

    Inyect your emunand in your sysnand, it'll be better than updating to 11.2.
    EDIT: I mean once you are in 2.1 with A9LH installed, not in 9.2 xD

    Seeing that OP is Brazilian, I must add "Use the SD card that came with your 3DS", most SD cards sold here (even if they weren't cheap) normally are counterfeits of famous brands or have poor quality (generic ones).
    Some bricks even when following the https://3ds.guide/ occurred due to poor quality SD cards used during the process.
    Just to play on safe side.

    i know i don't need but i have it ALREADY injected on my sysnand so i can still inject the new version of FBI on the old version or i need to inject my HS backup or i can just skip this part and use this old version to install the new version like i did on EMUNAND?

    Believe me, use the Toshiba that came with your 3DS to setup your A9LH. After it's done, you can switch back to using your Sandisk.

    You can just install the newest version of FBI as a CIA, than you can restore the Health and Safety app to avoid having 2 FBI apps on your nand.

    Yes, If you have FBI installed as a CIA you would never have to touch the H&S app again.

    ok, after i install the new FBI i open decrypt9 to restore HS backup, i need to rename the file or use the 2 files because rxtools dump 2 files for backup, bunch_of_numbers.APP and bunch_of_numbers.TMD

    ok thankyou but, think better, I think it's better to keep the old version because if by some reason fbi was deleted i will have to re-inject againd and that things so it may occure any error if i inject the new FBI over the old FBI?

    I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION PLEASE
    on the Decrypt9 part the guide says

    1. Remove your SD card from your device, leaving it on the Homebrew Launcher, then insert your SD card into your computer
    so i need to remove the sd card without turn off the console? i need to remove while it running homebrew launcher? this can freeze the console?
