    ....Except if you install wrong firmware or power off/error during the restoration of the NAND

    But be careful, if you restore a SysNAND backup without a9lh installed (at the time you backup it), I think a9lh will be uninstalled (because the restoration will rewrite in firm partition). So yeah, if your firm partition is corrupted during restoration (or whatever) --> hardmod...

    I've already installed it twice, in both cases without an hardmod and any kind of issue. The guides about extracting your OTP and compiling it are EXTREMELY clear and well written. Just be carefully with the sha-256 of the package. I can suggest you to dump your OTP twice in order to be sure that is extracted correctly comparing the sha-256 of both files.

    Err... Thanks for the advice but I already install a9hl (and I think NeoSlyde too). But yeah, you are right, the OTP guide is well written! (and yup, glorious to a9hl master race!!!!!)
