    Awesome tutorial! I had already done this prior to your guide but it did help me out on how to set up decrypt9 for a9lh. Thanks!

    I started doing the OTP, then the guide changed midway lol. No big deal, saw that you added a section about FBI/HS injection.

    Any reason to advise people to use BootCtr9 over CtrBootManager9? (real question, not shaming you)
    What is this update.bin that can be launched by holding A on boot in your boot_config.ini? I guess it's a leftover from your personal config?

    Might want to add, if N3DS don't reboot once 2.1 is injected to remove SD card than turn on console. Every N3DS i've done, I've had to do this.

    Can you explain what this unbrick emunand 2.1 step in the OTPHelper does? When I dumped OTP on my O3DS using guide v2.2, I don't remember doing anything similar to this step.

    It's needed to fix the 2.1 firmware, which was only designed to work on o3ds

    you mean n3ds ;)

    EDIT: misread, thought you meant the feature was only meant for o3ds, not the firmware, doh!

    He does mean o3DS: the 2.1 system version was made to work for what was available at the time which is o3DS. (grammar ambiguity? edit: ok, misread :P)

    Well, this is amazing.

    Can I translate Part 4 and 5 of your guide to portuguese? I already have a guide that covers parts 1, 2 and 3 :P

    This translation would help some people in another forum.

    Yeah, of course!

    This guide is amazing. I am getting ready to go from one of the original CFW to the most recent using this guide. I ran into one problem... The "Old 3DS AuReiNAND NTR" download link and mirror are dead. I'm sure I can find the file elsewhere but there are multiple revisions and I am not sure which to use. Any help would be appreciated!
