    When you did the CTR transfer, it should have offered to backup your NAND. Just use hourglass9 to restore that NAND and you be back on your previous OFW, with A9LH still intact.

    i see. so i will stay on my previous firmware (the firmware i was in before downgrading to 2.1). but one of my 3ds has 9.4 firmware on it. can i update to 11.2 or only to the latest firmware?

    Technically if you are on an old3DS, you can update from 2.1 to 11.3 and still keep A9LH. If you are one an new3DS, you have to restore, then update.
    I honestly suggest restoring and updating regardless of what system you are on. Mostly because restoring will restore all of your previous setting and stuff.

    i'm first want to try this on old 3ds and then on my new 3ds. because if i end up breaking my old 3ds (that would be foolish and i will be a total goon if it will happen) i won't be so upset because it's old . the guide is very easy to follow but there are lot of things you need to do. anyway thanks for your help. i very appreciate it.
