    According to the dates of my SD Card backups, I installed a9lh in February. Back when there was no OTPHelper and you manually had to unbrick n3DS NAND and hope you don't brick.

    My a9lh setup is -

    screen init

    no microSD Card inserted - hangs on blank backlit screen

    microSD Card inserted without a payload - instantly turns off

    Since then, what has changed? How many versions are out there and what do I do to update?
    All I know is that current versions of a9lh instantly turn off if there is no SD inserted, and I don't like that.

    Not much.

    There was a recent fix for uses of CTRBM9, but that's about it. The only real changes are screen-init/non-screen init and playing around with backlights (things like Fix94's).

    Ahh, okay. CTRBM worked perfectly fine for me, so I guess I'll leave it as it is.

    Thanks for that. If something new or mandatory gets added, I'll check that out.

    Also changed: 3DS turns off if no SD card is detected

    The process is extremely simple and takes literally one minute to perform. It fixed the screen flicker on had on my units, which i know is no big deal... But i had 3 minutes to spare, so why not.

    Yeah, I noted that in the main post.
