    I hear this a lot and the guide isn't short, but I can be.
    1. Download a bunch of stuff and sort to SD.
    2. Fire up homebrew, Back up Nand, Downgrade.
    3. Run more homebrew, back up Nand, Upgrade.
    4. Install Al9H, back up Nand, Upgrade.
    5. Profit!

    It's not short for a reason. Installing A9LH is too much of a liability, so Plailect can't be blamed for not being meticulous enough.

    I just don't even know where to start. It seems way to difficult than what I currently have setup. There isn't an easier way to do this while already having Luma?

    It honestly can't be any simpler. If you have an N3DS you don't even have to downgrade again. Just read the guide in order.

    I mean, the "Get Started" page linked above might be a good place to get started...

    It's alot of steps but it's not as daunting as it looks. Follow all the steps exactly and you'll be fine. You will be happy you did it. Faster and much more stable boot than menuhax.

    Only reason why I personally weed out "menuhax isn't as stable" is because I haven't rebooted my 3ds in a month, I just leave it in sleep mode. Not an issue for me

    You start by hitting "Getting started" on the guide

    It's actually a lot less steps, interestingly enough.
    You shouldn't simplify it. There's a reason why the guide goes into such detail.

    I know there is a reason the guide goes into so much detail and so does everyone who must use it to perform this task. Do my 5 bullet points seem like a guide anyone can follow? I was boiling it down enough for him to grasp the idea in one glance from his current setup.

    I set up A9LH when the guide was just a paragraph and even I am having a hard time following your guide.
