    Who is invited: everyone who installed Arm9loaderhax in February 2016
    What to do: Share your stories and hating Menuhax Peasants.


    To get the right feeling for the party: Read the Old Guide
    https://github.com/Plailect/OTP/tree/a4858aabc2418fbddc2c39d8743b4e4d687f496e

    Watch the old Sexy flickering Payload that dumped the otp



    We salute you @Plailect


    Enjoy the magical retro Feeling :)!

    Oh yea. Injecting a hex edited emunand into sysnand. This was Russian roulette.

    I installed it somewhere around summer when I traded in my O3DS XL for the LE Hyrule Edition N3DS XL, may I join pl0x?

    Well you can read the old guide in #1 to see how the Masterrace members did it.

    I did it when the Web compiler was invented. I think that was March though.

    Ugh. I compiled the installer myself, some random guy helped me installing all the tools for compiling because I never compiled a 3dsx before.

    Btw, Web compiler was invented on Feb 26th

    Between insane and insecure
    I remember using the old guide. Like I said, 2 paragraphs and it was like, "Git gud"

    Ohhhhh the nostalgia hurts me soo bad...
    I installed A9LH on the beggining of march, when the guide was less than a week old...
    Ive compiled the installer by myself, and i can remember myself dying from stress while using OTPHelper 0.5 and flashing my unbricked 2.1.0-4E EmuNAND to my SysNAND...I was so happy that my installation was a successful, and I won't forget this :) Thx so much Plailect for helping so many n00bs!!! :D

    I did it back when you still had to use a hex editor and a couple rather sketchy command-line tools to alter the NAND image that you'd then flash blindly and pray you were on 2.1. Luckily Aurora posted some hashes that I was able to verify against, and it worked. I was pretty nervous.

    And yes it was uphill in the snow, both ways. :P

    It was a very exciting time, reading all the technical stuff and watching everything change so much. I hope it can happen again. I guess sighax won't be hugely exciting, so I hope something like this can happen with the Switch.

    I remember the days of bashing menuhax peasants. There's an official list of them somewhere on the EoF as well as glorious a9lh master racers. We will never forget our leader, @Margen67 !

    I upgraded to A9LH sometime in June or July I forget lmao. Honestly I'm surprised the installation method has gotten easier and easier over the months.
