    So I recently took off A9LH off a system so I could re-make a "stock" 9.2 firmware. I still have the system backups from every other step, so I just need a way to reinstall A9LH quickly. It's currently on 9.2.20 U sysnand and I can run hbl through OoTHax.

    (Will post a guide about re-making the "stock" 9.2 firmware soon...) :)

    If you already have the OTP just run SafeA9LHInstaller with the files needed and install A9LH again.

    Ah, perfect. Guess I will have to do that when I get home again. And it's off to the races!

    If you had a NAND back up with al9 already installed on it, you could have just flashed that back via hardmod as well.

    But...a hardmod! (I know my soldering skills are terrible, and I really don't want to mess with that.)

    Good to know although!

    You need no hardmod if your sysNAND is 9.2. Just use emuNAND9.

    You mean Decrypt9? Can emuNAND9 restore NAND backups?

    So my options are:
    - install SafeA9LHinstaller to the HBL, run it and put the OTP in the appropriate place
    - run Decrypt9 with my sysnand+A9LH backup
    - hardmod my 3DS and install it there.

    Well yeah, dude, it's in the name. Haha.

    Anyway yes. emuNAND9 is a deeper NAND manager than Decrypt9 is. The main features are that it can backup/restore NANDs, like Decrypt9. It can also convert an existing and in-use emuNAND into a redNAND and vice-versa. It can clone emuNAND to sysNAND without needing a backup of emuNAND, and it can automatically format your SD Card to FAT32/format the card to remove emuNAND.

    Lol. Got it. Will reinstall everything when I get back home. Really I feel tired at this point. Too many modded 3DSes to count.
