    Why would you want to remove it?

    Oh, I see.
    Isn't a system transfer possible? You would probably have to install the hack again on the new 3DS, though...

    Just sell it on a hacking forum or sell it as a cfw console. People will buy it, maybe even pay an extra couple dollars for it.

    You have over a hundred posts so see what prices you can get on the GBAtemp trading and selling section.

    There should be a way, using the same concept as http://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-hard...of-native_firm-from-10-4-10-5-to-10-2.412836/
    However it should be possible by flashing an emuNAND backup to sysNAND as well. Or by updating your sysNAND from a CFW that does not block firm0/firm1 updates.
    I agree with this, a console with a9lh installed would be worth more.

    I had it on there for over a week and not one enquiry. hence why I sold it on ebay. I think I may have a backup of my old nand, backing up my current one now just incase

    Only other thing I can think of is to get sysNAND to an exploitable firmware (9.0-9.2), make sure FIRM0/1 write protection is DISABLED, not enabled, then use sysUpdater to install all 9.2 titles which would overwrite a9lh. I don't think this would have any adverse side affects, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Regardless, if you have a NAND backup then that would be much better.

    I have heard that attempting to update with a9lh bricks. So if you have an emuNAND backup that's valid you could flash it then downgrade it back to 9.2 ofw

    If you have an emunand, write emunand to sysnand, a9lh should be gone :)
    Then you can downgrade again to 9.2 to sell it.

    People will seriously buy it as a CFW 3DS on ebay and such. In fact many rather buy a console already modded.

    They didn't really I got, £84 and I advertised it as a 9.2 3ds, don't know eBay rules on advertising modded things.

    I only removed the hack incase someone got it who doesn't know what they're doing and accidentally bricks the thing
