    So... It is a friday night for me, and somehow on every friday night I get a brilliant idea that probably will end up with me having to search the good old internet for 2 hours. So If I try to downgrade from Luma3DS 11.0.0-33E to 9.2.0 and I brick will my A9LH installation help me?

    As long as you have a NAND backup, you should be fine. (don't quote me, though)

    Wait wait wait.... What did you just say? So If I have A9LH I somehow get the magic ability to downgrade 11.0 without a hardmod?

    Yes because it locks the firm to patching the kernel.

    You can 'downgrade' if you have the band from that firmware already backed up. You can also try downgrading using a downgrading program, and if it fails you should be able to restore your backup as well.
