    Is there a way to revert back to A9LH after upgrading to B9S? And if there is, explain it like I'm 8, I'm not very knowledgeable with 3DS hacking. Or, preferably, is there a way to keep from getting banned/unban myself because I have B9S?

    If having A9LH NAND: Restore it without keeping hax.

    If no A9LH NAND:
    1. Restore F0F1 backup.
    2. Restore Sector0x96 backup.
    No restart/shutdown between 1 and 2 otherwise it will be unable to exploit A9LH.

    Don't. Do. That.

    tl;dr: A9LH/B9S has nothing to do with bans.

    Well since B9S has nothing to do with it, is it possible to keep from getting baned aside from not going online?

    I've always said Nintendo can see anything out of the ordinary and stick by that. To assume otherwise would be silly in my opinion. If you're up to anything fishy they know. I barely play online so I'm not affect yet on either of my consoles but if it happens I don't care one bit. I assume and expect it to happen some time in the future so I never worry about it.

    I'm surprised an 8-year old can comprehend the concept of A9LH and how it relates to B9S.

    As of right now, we're not positive on the reason for the bans. However, people who haven't used their 3ds in over a month have been banned, so it's likely Nintendo has been gathering info on who to ban for a long time, and only now are going into action about banning them. If this is the case, almost any action now will be irrelevant. Your only hope is that they haven't tagged you yet and turn off internet, but if they have already tagged you (which you should assume is likely) you're just waiting to be banned.

    Does it change anything not having an NNID?

    Have any non kernel access *hax users been banned? Legitimately asking for a friend. Ex: Soundhax

    If you've previously updated from an A9LH installation or really any setup with an emuNAND, you'll face no issues trying to maintain that. Just set Luma to boot your emuNAND by default in its settings (hold select while booting to bring them up).
    Besides, if you need to change anything about your emuNAND partition, you an also use Decrypt9WIP, or (preferably) Godmode9, both of which offer .firm payloads to boot with B9S.

    So all in all there's absolutely no need to downgrade in your case.

    Creating or using a EmuNAND has nothing to do with A9LH or B9S. They are just loader. A9LH loads arm9loaderhax.bin, B9S loads boot.firm.

    No. F0F1 are the crucial part of both A9LH and B9S.

    It's important to keep it ?

    (I don't want to remove b9s)

    EmuNAND9 was simply a program like Decrypt9 that was suited for EmuNAND creation on the 3DS, but it is obsolete now and its functionality is in GodMode9. You can use an EmuNAND on B9S just as easily as on A9LH, you just need to use GodMode9 or a PC tool to format your SD for it.

    I usually use this these days: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-3ds-multi-emunand-creator.381603/

    Those backups are encrypted with your 3DS's encryption so restoration would be possible via hardmod in the essentially impossible case that B9S installation went badly. They aren't needed once B9S is successfully installed.

    Ok so when I go to create a emunand using emunand9 on the homebrew launcher it just exits right out of the application I also found a bin of it for a9lh but
    its not supported on b9s

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I need a emunand for a few reasons
    1: so I can test stuff on my emunand rather then sysnand
    2: so I have emulated consoles allowing me to have 2 different friend codes allowing me to have 200 friends even more with more emunands
    3: easily accessing more NNIDs allowing more miiverse accounts allowing more miiverse trolling
