    very nice, I like the design and layout of the instructions. makes it easy to follow the instructions for your specific system and the version situation they are in.

    I succesfully applied the guide. But I have one question.
    In guide
    • “Autoboot SysNAND”
    selection is advised to be chosen.

    Which one should you use for daily gaming or game loading usage? sysnand or emunand?
    If it's emunand then why guide encourages sysnand boot?

    After you've installed arm9loaderhax, you can use your sysNAND to play your games. You can also update it without any danger.

    I've hacked both my O3DS as well as my N3DS with the old version of the guide some time ago. But I still had a look at the new version of the guide just for fun and I have to say everything looks even more streamlined and user-friendly then before, a great improvement for sure^^ Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this guide, I really appreciate it :)

    Super guide... would love to follow the instructions but im slightly unsure about the description about browser vs non browser??
    Is 9.9.0-26e browser or no browser?
    Wouldnt be a bad idea to use version ref. Umber for unsure/new/noob/idiots of user like me
    Thanks you. Very much for the whole guide though it reads very well

    Since you're on 9.9 (-26 being the browser version) you might have a dummy browser.

    First, block the DNS on the console Internet configuration with the Tubehax DNS.
    See if you can use the internet browser on your console.
    If yes, then you have a browser. Follow the guide accordingly.

    If you don't have a working browser, you have to get another homebrew entrypoint (with a CART).
    Just follow the guide but the No-Browser version of it.

    So is it possible to take a second card and install an emuNand on it, then downgrade it, and dump in otp.bin from it, then pop in the original SD card and A9LH with that otp from there? All without ever downgrading the sysnand?

    The only downside of the new site is now it doesn't display when it was last edited anymore.

    The last number denotes a browser. So, you can use it.
