    So, why is screeninit important exactly?

    for arm9 binaries that need the screen to start. This does not include things like decrypt9, bootanim9 and other. But bootloaders do.

    The only things I use with A9LH are Luma3DS, Decrypt9, and EmuNAND9. Could I reinstall A9LH with no screeninit and have everything work the same? (My sysNAND is still on 9.2.)

    What installer should I use? The one in Plailect's guide is for 2.1. I assume that won't work on 9.2.

    I used this last night, works perfectly
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Updating-arm9loaderhax
    My sysnand is also on 9.2 although I have a 11.0 emunand, I'm guessing you're the same

    Question: if you have 100% compatibility with screeninit, and not 100% compatibility with noscreeninit, then why use noscreeninit?

    Because some people like their systems to look stock//vanilla. Screen-init has a short flash before powering on. No-screen-init does not and looks more vanilla//stock like.

    no flash at the beginning, and bootloaders are unnecessary

    Cause if for whatever reason my system fucks up, I don't lose £200, its just a reflash to get it all up and running again.
    I have an emunand and still have 10gb left on my 128gb card so it's not that big a deal to me

    For you maybe. However, there are people who don't like Luma3DS' chainloader. It also fails to initialize GW's a9lh.bin (yes, yes, f*k GW) - But apart from that, Luma3DS' chainloader isn't for everybody. BootCTR9 gives me a lot more control over what I can do with my buttons, I can even add a damn splash to each option. Oh and then their is people who like CtrBootManager9, and it's GUI interface for selecting their payloads, as opposed to how Luma3DS' chainloader and BootCTR9 do it. Then there is people who like arm9select and arm9loaderhay. Again, it may be unnecessary for you, but not others.

    And yet I'm still going to use it. There's no immediate need to get rid of it and I've got all the games I want so space isn't an issue

    I personally love ctrbootmanager9's interface, it reminds me of grub
