    Hello,

    I read this forum for a while now but i never created an account, so this is my first thread.
    I am actually trying to uninstall a9lh but nothing seems working.
    I installed it yesterday following the 3ds.guide tutorial. I got an old 3DS XL that was on ver 6.1.0 with browser before.
    I want to uninstall because i want to be able to back on a clean 3DS at any time. (yeah i know, why would you even uninstall a9lh ???! I know it's dumb but i just want to back to a clean 3DS so i can redo it maybe in one year when i will probably sell it).
    So after finishing the guide i could install some cia games and everything was working nicely.
    What i did to try to uninstall:
    1- The version was Sys 11.4.0, i did "reformat console" from system settings, but it seems it did nothing ?
    2- I followed 3ds.guide Section IV - Restoring the system. Now my console is on Sys 6.1.0
    3- I started SafeA9LHInstaller, and pressed Start to uninstall, but i got an error (see attached image).

    I searched everywhere about this error but i can't find anything, i don't understand what it is.
    If someone can help me please, i am a little lost, this is all new to me and i don't want to break my console.

    Thank you ! :D

    Use safe a9lh. Then just Unistall it. But there is a risk of bricking the console. Plus it's better to keep a9lh anyway. But each to their in I guess.

    If you restore you nand that was made from before a9lh, it will be stock again. If you update from there, a9lh is currently not a possibility to reinstall. I would keep the a9lh personally.

    I am sorry i don't understand.
    Actually i restored my nand using godmode9 Restore (safe) but i didn't update it, so i could keep it on Sys 6.1.0. I think if i can remove a9lh i will be back to Ver 6.1.0 right ?

    ok i am reading the source code of the fork of Safe29LHInstaller, and it seems i got 2 .tmd and 2 .app in 1:/title/00040138/00000002/content
    and it's the case in nearly every directory in 1:/title

    The "safe" restore option keeps a9lh intact. Just keep a9lh. You may regret uninstalling and there is no downside of keeping it...

    i know, i know i am dumb as hell. I just wanted to know how all this works exactly. I succesfully uninstall a9lh and now i am back to Ver 6.1.0 !
    The problem was the same as this one: https://3ds.guide/troubleshooting#gw_fbi . Hopefully everything is open source :D
    Now i am gonna try to reinstall everything.
    And yeah there is no real reason why i wanted to uninstall just to reinstall it. As i said i just want to fully understand how it works and be able to back to a clean 3ds at anytime

    At least now i know that my original nand is a little fucked up, i think it's because of an old rxtools install in 2015

    You could have troubleshooted your problems without uninstalling A9LH. You're lucky nothing went wrong. Having A9LH gave you brick-protection in case you did something stupid, and messing with it after the fact could have caused a brick.
