    With al9h installed on my new 3ds
    which nand do I backup emunand or sysnand (since a9lh modifies sysnand, do I back up and restore from sysnand if any errors occur?)

    Also is it best on creating an image of the sd card or using the backup/restore feature by decrypt9 to upgrade the sd card

    Or use decrypt9, both do the same. I believe hourglass is noob proof.

    Between insane and insecure
    They both back your install, but Hourglass9 has the added benefit of being able to restore any NAND and always protect your A9LH install.
    Decrypt9, you either need to use the option to protect or restore the NAND with A9LH installed in order to protect your A9LH install.
