    You kind of contradict yourself here.
    You say youre on version 11?
    Then say emuNAND and sysNAND are 9.2..

    If you ARE on 9.2.. A9LH installation is possible.
    If youre on 11.0.0.. nothing is possible for you currently.

    Then yes. You can install A9LH just fine.
    Follow the guide, and ask here if you have any problems getting through it.

    Youre the one who suggested doing this... not me. Lol

    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    Go there, start from part 4 (since you already have emuNAND) replacing redNAND with your emuNAND.
    Its reallllly not that bad. Almost noob/brick proof at this point. Nervousness is unnecessary.

    Gambia, The
    Some advice: Simply take your time. Read the guide you were linked to and make sure you understand what step you're about to do next on your 3DS. If you are unsure about something, read the instructions for the step you are stuck on again. If after reading the steps several times you are still unsure, then go ahead and ask for help here. If the guide lists files to download and place on the SD Card go through the list of files one by one and take note that all files are present or check for missing ones. As I was installing A9LH, taking my time with everything really helped me to relax. Before I knew it I had my 3DS downgraded to 2.1 and successfully got my OTP almost without me noticing that I was approaching such a crucial step. In the end, everything went fine and I'm sure it will be the same for you :)

    If you're not using Luma as your CFW already, take the extra steps (already in the guide) and do so.

    As already stated, just take the time out to read up on what youre doing/going to do OP. Im sure that with knowledge of what youre doing you will be fine. Since you already have emunand and sysnand I assume you should already know the basics in terms of backing up and restoring .nand, entry points you need at certain steps and how to set up your sd properly
