    I recently installing a9lh but i bricked. I lost my backup sysNAND. I only retrieved my emuNAND backup. I should've backup my sysNAND again. So i'm planning to hardmod my 3ds. It is possible to hardmod my 3ds without backup or i can use my emuNAND?

    Depends on the emuNAND, and your console. If it's a 2.1 emuNAND, and you have an N3DS, then you can't do anything.
    Otherwise, if the emuNAND is 2.1, but you're on O3DS, or if it's 9.0 (or later) on either model, you'll be fine.

    Can you launch Decrypt9 by holding start while pressing power?

    I know my emunand backup is 10.7.0-32 so it is safe to use? Its plain i guess with FBI injected. I hadn't backup my emunand or sysnand while installing my a9lh. I regret my decision not to backup since i'm pretty confident my 3ds wont bricked.
    Nope

    Not trying to make you feel bad but the guide has you backup your Sysnand so many times so what happened?
    And why can't you launch D9 did you format the SD?
    Check your payloads folder for def_Dec9.bin or Decrypt9WIP.bin is it there?

    Yup, a 10.7 backup will work just fine. You'll just need to downgrade it manually if you want to use haxs again.

    If the OP already has A9LH installed, I'm with Xenon. Decrypt9's payload should be pasted in the OP's A9LH CFW folder. He or she should be able to restore the nand from there. But like you mentioned Kawaii, a downgrade will need to be performed once again. This time take multiple backups OP. You wouldn't be in this mess if you had done what the guide advised you to do from the get go.

    OP, what did you do to brick? I had no issues installing A9LH.
