    Arm9LoaderHax REALLY a must? i mean, worth all the effort?

    Here is the guide if you didn't see it https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Get-Started

    So you can only dump your OTP on firmware 2.0 or below, and you can downgrade from 4.5 i guess.

    With A9LH, the boot speed is better, 100% bootrate and you can use both Emunand and Sysnand updated (you can use only sysnand if you want, i use both in case of my Emu/sysnand mess up)

    AFTER installing A9LH, it's like a permanent CFW. You'll can install the cias with any cia manager.

    arm9loaderhax isn't a cfw in itself, but it can be used to load another CFW, so it acts exactly like any other 3ds cfw does.
