I've been looking at older threads about this, but just wanted to be sure about something before going into it.

I've purchased a New 3DS XL for a buddy of mine, and plan on getting A9LH with it (I've modded nearly 17 consoles prior, the rest of the process isn't new to me at all). My only concern is the fact that it came on firmware version 9.9, something I've never downgraded before. I've usually downgraded from 10.3 or 10.7.

Should I downgrade directly from 9.9 to 9.2? Or should I update to 10.3 or 10.7 via sysUpdater, and THEN downgrade to 9.2? Thanks in advance :)

I just downgraded from 9.9 to 9.2 a couple of days ago for the first time. I used Plailect's guide and I had no issues going from 9.9 to 9.2. This was on an o3DS mind you. If you're being safe, I would do a format of the system memory before continuing as it is not worth taking any risks.

EDIT: This table shows it has been done.

Forgot to post back here after the fact...

Factory 9.9 will 100% have an error in progress.
Do a second-time downgrade to fix it.
This did happen, so I was left with a partial downgrade. Going back into sysUpdater via Oot3dhax continued the rest of the downgrade, and got me to 9.2! The 3DS now has A9LH installed on it.

Thank you everyone for the help!

Sure, but you also have browserhax and menuhax which are faster in launching imo since you don't have to start a game

ya that 3ds is fully hacked now with 11j a9lh. i didnt realize CN ninjax didnt need browser to work.

9.8.0-0J last number is browser ver.

0 means its just dummy stub and is non functional so i couldnt just do browser hax.

    For batch operations.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Massivley so. Glad I'm getting more experienced with it now
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Hey can you make this [inane change] on 50 servers?" Yes.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    The scenario in question is to do disk erases on some storage servers at my job that have I think 12x 14TB spinners, SATA SSDs, and nvme disks. The process I'm using to erase the spinners is to kick off an ATA Security Erase in the disk's firmware, then once that's done do a dd zero-fill as a second pass.
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    These spinners take like 22h per each of those operations
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I'll admit sometimes it takes me longer to write and debug a script that will do that for me, than it would take me to make the changes manually, but this is more fun.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And running it over a serial console I'd either have to spin up a dozen and a half screen sessions or just run one operation at a time
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Wrote a horrifyingly long one-liner to do all of that - spin up a shitload of screen sessions, run these commands to it, pipe output to kmsg so it shows up in the default tty's shell, and some other shit on top of that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Can't you run pssh?
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Some day I'll write out a properly formatted shell script that lives on our firmware server or git repo and just call that, and have that handle every kind of server we run much more gracefully than my hobbled together atrocity does right now
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I just assumed you were working via SSH. I know my way around that. If a server is only accessible locally it's waaay beyond saving from my end so I let the DC team work on that :tpi:
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I *am* the DC team :P the remote arm of it, anyway
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Trust me, I wish I could do everything I need to do via ssh. Working through these serial console servers suuuuuucks in comparison

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I love that there's a network filesystem that runs on top of ssh - sshfs
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I use it in most of my home network for mounting network storage in various *nix VMs
  • Veho @ Veho:
    sshfs you say...
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I use SFTP but it doesn't have the bells and whistles.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Dumb dx11 and lutris
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    sshfs allows you to mount networked storage on a machine as a FUSE filesystem. It's sftp under the hood but has all of the interactivity and usability you'd expect of a locally mounted filesystem. Downside, it can slow down a little bit with massive directories, but I haven't personally run into that yet
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    This perspective is all linux oriented fwiw. I believe there's an sshfs driver for Windows, but I haven't used it yet. and no idea for MacOS
