    Since in my last thread, everyone thought it was so funny that I said "sysnand" instead of cfw, I thought it might be better just to make a new thread so people don't have a reason to spam posts.

    Anyways, how do I uninstall a cfw? I'm using luma3ds and a9lh, and I haven't found a thing about it.

    Inside your bootloader (´◉◞౪◟◉)
    Delete the arm9loaderhax.bin than cfw is gone.

    Yeah, no. I'm pretty sure that would cause a B R I C K. It CAN'T be THAT simple, considering a downgrade is involved in the setup process.
    In response to your question, people have told me to restore a pre-a9lh backup using Decrypt9.

    It won't brick but his 3ds won't start anymore because arm9loader has nothing to load = shut down :D. He has to Uninstall arm9loaderhax to remove cfw. This is possible with SafeA9LHInstaller.

    Some people must not realize that posting useless information is less helpful than posting no information at all.

    (OK, the first post or two about it before the edit were mild amusing, but then people wouldn't stop.)

    I believe your original question was answered in the last thread though.

    He wants to sell it.
    Although he probably should have said so in this thread.

    First, OP didn't state (in this thread anyway) why he wanted to remove CFW. Second, CFW would probably make it worth more, depending on how he's selling it. Third, even if it doesn't make it worth more, there's no reason not to just leave it on there.
