    Simple question.

    When i did my ARM9LoaderHAX (A9LH) with CRTNAND transfer. I did it to my 9.2 sysNAND and then i restored my emuNAND to sysNAND using
    Hourglass9 ( SysNAND Backup/Restore > SysNAND Restore (keep a9lh )

    But now i'm doing with OTPLESS using SafeA9LHInstaller, so boot sysnand 9.2 and perform OTPLess

    Can i still use "Hourglass9 ( SysNAND Backup/Restore > SysNAND Restore (keep a9lh )"
    after backup my emuNAND?

    Or it need OTP files to do so?

    Thank you guys in advance!!

    OTP was originally needed for a9lh installation. As long as A9lh is installed, you don't have to worry. Hourglass9 requires a kernel exploit like A9lh, not the otp file on it's own.

    Thank you very much!!

    I was afraid the option "keep A9LH" needed OTP becouse when i did my otp was inside folder!!!

    Thank you so much!!

    Currect. Once A9lh is installed and hourglass9 detects it, it'll ensure A9lh remains installed. The OTP is mostly used for properly encrypting the a9lh specifically for your 3ds, so OTP's job isn't required for that. As far as I know.

    You would need a backup from before you installed a9lh and you'd need to use Decrypt9 and not choose the "keep a9lh" option. Or I think SafeArm9Installer can uninstall it, but you have to be on 9.2 (I guess the author didn't want people rendering their consoles unhackable).

    If I backup my emunand and then revert back to my 9.2 backup (to recover a gateway save) will all I have to do is recover my backup I just made on 11.1?
