If you're on Luma check whether it's 7.1 or above, if it's below 7.1 I'm vusssing you have A9LH
I think I had something else installed for CFW and then I switched it out to A9LH I think cuz someone told me to... is there a way to check?
Of course.Just make sure to do a nand backup if you ever want to go on 11.4 after.
awesome sounds good thank you, but just update on the side that has my emunand not on the normal nand obviously?

First, to clarify, A9LH and its successor B9S are not CFWs - they're ways of launching a CFW (or other arm9 homebrews)

Check in the root of your SD for a file called boot.firm, if you have one you're most likely using B9S (can't be said for absolutely sure, since nothing prevents you from creating a file called boot.firm at any time or from having configured SD-less boot, but still...)
The A9LH equivalent of boot.firm is called arm9loaderhax.bin or arm9loaderhax_si.bin

I have A9LH, so I will make a back up and update then

    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.

    His record seems to imply otherwise, but politicians say the opposite of what they really mean
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like most politicians, he
