    Thanks to Plailect's Guide, it helps people to upgrade, to setup CFW & A9LH, to help people answer noob easily.
    But it also brings more and more bad manner A9LHists start to spread that guide on every request post, and force other GBATemp users to accept A9LH, and ostracize other opinions.

    Although Plailect's Guide is an A9LH guide & omitted when you can stop if you don't want to go A9LH (actually if you end at the finish of Part 2 Downgrading, it's indeed a Menuhax guide), it doesn't force readers to follow.

    The same thing happened back in the DS days when Wood R4 was released. Every thread was just trying to get people to buy an R4i Gold for Wood R4.

    Can we really says that it's bad when what the users are proposing is indeed the best of what the scene have to offers for now ?

    That has always been happening (gateway for example) no one gets their answer until like page 2.

    I'm not really on the help thread so I don't know how it works and it's proposed, but I think that giving all the possibilities (including A9LH) is a good thing.

    You can support an objectively better solution and still be a complete jerk about it (not you, but that's the "bad" part of it):P I still don't have A9LH yet, but I'll get around to it eventually.

    I'm completely agree with you !

    What i'm saying is that I'm completely okay with the fact that the users are proposing the A9LH solution. As long as it's made in all objectivity and without discriminating those who don't want to use it I mean.

    It became a religion simply because it's the holy grail of 3ds hacking.

    Nothing against offering people what is currently the best. Plailect's guide is very noob-friendly compared to a lot of menuhax-emunand guides so it's perfect for people new to the scene.

    It's just another malignant tumor to add to GBATemps ever growing infection of cancer.

    No one gives a fuck if you use A9LH. No one gives a fuck if you use MenuHax. No one gives a fuck if you use a flashcard.

    Just shut the fuck up, please, all of you fanboys trying to get into Aurora Wrights pants. RIP GBATemp

    This is actually a fantastic point that a lot of people tend to overlook. Guides for emunand and menuhax are, well, poorly written and sparse, with multiple different guides, none of which are exactly noob friendly. Plailect's guide on the other hand is superbly written and is a centralized source.

    Woah slow down.

    Shitposter like margen67 cursing menuhax users: Yes I agree.
    But suggesting A9LH over MenuHAX for noobie users? Nothing wrong with offering the best.

    I don't think anyone's really disputing whether or not Plailect's the best guide or if Luma is the best CFW: Setting up A9LH after Menuhax is another 2-3 hours of work which might or might not be worth the effort, which varies on a per-user basis.

    A9LH is definitely the better option in terms of functionality, but Menuhax is quickly accessible for those who just want to get the hacking over with.

    In order to start a cult you need three main ingredient:
    1. You need a sufficiently dissatisfied group of people. In most cases it's people who want to know the meaning of life or those who feel under-appreciated. Here, it's people who are tired of the dozens of attempts it takes to trigger menuhax or having to boot ninjhax or having to type in a url for browserhax.
    2. You need to propose a solution to all their problem. Maybe it's God. Maybe it's a Leader. Maybe it's a hack that works 100% of the time on boot.
    3. You need a high barrier of entry--a hazing ritual so people feel like they earned their right to be here and others should have to earn it too. Walk on glass? Drink a nasty potion? Follow a complicated 2 hour guide that might lead to bricks?
    I'm just surprised that nobody has killed anyone or themselves yet while shouting "A9LH!!!"

    I think a9lh masterrace is just joking around most of the time. But you're definitely not taking taking it that way are you.
    Just make sure to check your blood pressure often, anger can kill you. Take care of yourself now... :unsure:

    Why so negative? Maybe it's true to some extent that no one cares what other people are using, but most gbatemp users, I believe, don't mind helping other members of the community, either by providing helpful advices or by other means. This probably excludes you, I guess. But remember that if no one ever shared any knowledge or helped the community, you wouldn't have any hacks to use for your consoles.

    At least A9LH is real, unlike every other religion in the world ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I remember people being pretty persistent and evangelical about perm cfw in the PSP scene as well. LCFW peasants :P

    I apologise for my outburst, I've been around here for a long time in terms of the 3DS scene and I really miss the days where we all unified. Now, we are all fractured; flashcard versus CFW camps, even the CFW camp is fractured by menuhax versus a9lh. What is the point of it all?

    And do you really think the a9lh guys are joking? Every. Single. Menuhax. Thread goes like this: OP says "i need help with menuhax" and for 5 pages all the replies are "i know the problem, you need to upgrade to a9lh"

    How about just helping someone with their flashcard or outdated CFW with menuhax? Not everyone needs all the bells and whistles. Dont fix what isn't broken, as the saying goes, if your 3DS autoboots and plays CIA, what more do you need.

    Rant over :-)

    I remember when people were very adamant about staying AWAY from clones.. Y'know, before the official cart was shutdown.
