    1. Yes
    2. Yes
    3+ No. You need to be on 9.2. Follow the guide linked to downgrade and install CFW.

    You might want to re-read the GBATemp rules buddy... Especially the part on "Warez" - ROMs, WADs & ISOs".

    Yeah, you downgrade it to the "original" 2.1 firmware.

    This guide does not feature 9.2 downgrade. It only shows how to get Decrypt9, and how to use it to downgrade to 2.1, which is something you do on a rednand, therefore no risk of a softbrick on sysnand, and how to install A9LH from what I'm seeing.

    You still need to tinyformat your rednand twice before the 2.1 downgrade though

    For highest success chance possible, then yes, you should format before downgrading.

    When you're down in 9.2, you should move to the new guide because the new guide start off when you're in 9.2

    imma hijack this thread.
    you seem to know your stuff, why would you want to downgrade to 2.1 if you can play pirated games on 9.2?

    Because you can get important console-specific data on that firmware (OTP.bin) which lets you have CFW on updated sysNAND and be brick-proof. Read https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki
