    As always, when a major new hacking innovation descends upon the 3ds community, there are chicken little threads decrying the new method as being tantamount to 3ds suicide. Then, there are others who think their own successful a9lh downgrade experience means the method is confirmed safe for all, and that anyone who does brick is an idiot.

    Time for a little bit of clarification and comparison on what the truth is! If you have anything to add on why your system bricked or you just couldn't get a9lh installed, please feel free to comment. This is the link to the Plailect guide, and the Hyoretsu guide.

    I was successfully able to use waithax+safehax to boot into Decrypt9 (just to test), and I then used fasthax+safehax (your build, @zoogie) to also boot into Decrypt9 where I performed a 2.1.0 ctrtransfer and install A9LH. I used the Plailect guide.

    For the success regarding my guide, just go to the poll in my thread. 86 people who reported success using it. Will also add replies of anyone who had success in my signature.

    We don't have enough of a sample size to determine anything in regards to your guide yet (except relative popularity maybe). But over time, they should come, and be a similar ratio to your poll. Hopefully.

    This poll is intended mainly to gauge the overall risk of current a9lh modding vs the older generations, and what guide works the best to achieve it now.

    Just anecdotal, but I am starting to notice more brick threads. Could be just due to more people attempting, hopefully. (or using icky videos)

    [Success] I used Hyoretsu's Guide on Gbatemp.net

    I will say the true, for me it was easier that guide than the one from
    Plailect but only because it was shorter and more concise.

    Thank you Hyoretsu :3

    No need for a confession, whatever works. And it seems like seems both the Hyoretsu and Plailect guides are working well. : )
