First of all, let me get this out my chest.
Rule of thumb, never follow a youtube video isntead of an "Official" or pretty documented guide.

Now, again, i still watch a dude,that installed arm9loaderhax easy enough without mentioning the OTP, wel indeed, it did say that you wont need to put your SD card several times on the PC, as that guide will do everything you need.

Now, almost every step its the same as plailect guide, hoever heres the plot twist on his video:
After clonning 2.1 emunand to sysnand he does the following:
Goes to dukesrg.io website, to launch SafeA9LHInstaller, and the console will have the arml9oaderhax but will be on 2.1

Then he proceed to enter a recovery menu pressing start + power, then he goes to hourglass and restore the sysnand using the emunand that was on v11 before downgrading.

And thats it.... no OTP AT ALL? is this a new feature im missing? I DO UNDERSTAND THAT FOLLOWING THE GUIDE ITS MUCH EASIER AND SAFE, however, im just wondering why he did not acquired the OTP, stating that the SafeA9LHInstaller will take care of everything.

Please avoid answers like: follow the guide, as thats not what im asking for, im asking about OTP specific. why he did not used the otp helper, and if the SafeA9LHInstaller indeed take care of that.

Tagging @Cyan and @Plailect just to be sure.

for installation yes. it's also safer since you install a9lh directly on 2.1, instead of restoring a 9.2 backup and doing it then.
Thats all i needed to hear, im pretty new to arm since i didnt actually need it, but im ready to update just for the sake of it, this thread can be cloed if possible C:

There's no need to close all threads where the answer has been given.
Some users with the same question or issue can use it, or someone with better knowledge who didn't post could confirm or warn about something not said yet (see how me or plailect you notified hadn't post yet?)

Of course, if the thread starts to be abused (insult/flaming/offtopic/etc.) it will be closed to be archived and kept nice to read.
