    One thing I can tell: a9lh and CFW have been installed correctly, seeing that there's no thing like half-installed a9lh, either it's installed or it's not, and CFW's just a file on your SD card, if it's corrupted, it won't even load.

    Consider yourself lucky that you didn't brick because you followed a Youtube guide. One of the worst things to do is to follow a YT guide when messing with things you don't even understand.

    As for the actual problem:

    Does the guide instruct you to test your SD card with h2testw before you begin the hacking process?

    If it does NOT, then the guide is already terrible. And if it did NOT tell you to do this, then this is what you should do:

    Move all files from SD card, then test the program with h2testw and see if it gives you an error. If it does, the SD card is corrupted/faulty and most likely the reason for crashes.

    Last but not least, DS not starting up without SD card is NOT normal, that guide is just terrible. To be able to start the console without SD card you must go to FBI, go to the root of the SD card and find "arm9loaderhax.bin" file. Press A on it, and choose Copy. Then go back in the file directory until you find "CTRNAND". Open it. Then select <current directory>, press A, and press "Paste". Now your 3DS will start w/o SD card.

    Between insane and insecure
    Please, never follow youtube guides when it comes down to hacking. They are quickly made out of date. I always suggest to just use a written guide
    3ds.guide/
    It's always up to date and properly tested.
    As for the rest, what did you do? You should just need to disable game patching. Or simply re-install the game. If your save is fucked up, then restore a clean save (if you made one) or start over again.
    This isn't completely CFW related and I don't suggest randomly shooting in the dark if you don't know what you are doing. That is a horrible way of troubleshooting.

    You can try a 9.2.0 ctrtransfer, if your NAND is corrupted somehow that will fix it. https://3ds.guide/9.2.0-ctrtransfer
    But something tells me the problem has nothing to do with your sysNAND.

    Why do you think you need to "delete and reinstall" CFW? 3DS isn't Windows; deleting and reinstalling won't fix anything, and will probably make things worse.

    freeShop crashing isn't caused by a "broken" CFW. There might be some incorrectly cached freeShop files that need to be deleted.

    You don't need to reinstall the CFW, it won't fix your problem, and it might even make things worse.
