    hello

    i have a9lh + luma 6.6, how can i tell if the a9lh hax is still in place / active / installed ?

    if i boot the console without the sd card and hold start button to get to luma config ?

    if not how ?

    You get luma's config with select, not start.

    If you have a9lh v3 or less booting without the SDcard will shutdown the console.
    If you have a9lhv4 and have CTRNAND luma you'll still be able to boot without and SDcard as a vanilla console would, but pressing SELECT on boot will still bring up luma's config menu.

    I believe booting with the most recent a9lh without an sd card (or at least no luma on the sd card) then, thanks to ctrnand, it will boot an emergency cfw that's barebones, but will still net you boot0/1 protection and signature patching.

    You could check your system FW in settings. If it starts with sys you're still in Luma

    Between insane and insecure
    If you can still boot into Luma3DS without your SD card, you are still running A9LH. Apparently you installed Luma3DS to you CTRNAND at one point

    Luma is active at that point, but why are you still on 9.2?

    If you delete it , the console will not power on completely on next boot since the payload is missing, First it searches SD and if not found searches CTRNand for arm9loaderhax.bin. If both missing the system powers off.
