    Hey, I was going to sell my 3DS and I was wondering; how do I remove a cfw? I'm currently using Luma3DS and A9lH. There's gotta be SOME way to uninstall a cfw.

    You don't remove sysNAND. You remove the CFW. :/

    You can't just uninstall sysNand, sysNand is a way of saying NAND, you wanna know what the NAND is? HERE IT IS!

    Did you even read the thread? I meant a cfw. It was obvious when I said "Luma3DS"

    We need less posts like yours.

    Here's what ya do:
    1) Get a screwdriver and open that 3DS right up
    2) Use the above image to find the NAND chip on your motherboard
    3) Jam that screwdriver in there and pry that bad boy right off.
    4) Congrats! You have just uninstalled sysNAND!

    Unlike the bandwagon going on, if you have a NAND backup before you installed AL9H, you can just restore that WITHOUT keeping A9LH.
    If you don't, all you need to do is remove AL9H and Luma3DS.

    I should add that you will NEED to use Decrypt9 for this, Hourglass9 does not have the option to restore a NAND backup without keeping a9lh. Sorry for the crack earlier, couldn't resist ;)

    Wait, how do I uninstall them? I've never seen an option to do so. I'm looking to send my 3DS to Nintendo before I sell the console, so I really need to.uninstall the two.

    Either restore a NAND backup from BEFORE installing a9lh using decrypt9 like we said before, or run safea9lhinstaller as a luma payload just like when you installed a9lh. It will have a new option to uninstall.

    SafeAL9Hinstaller can remove AL9H iirc.
    Do you have a NAND backup?

    @Gameboyandwatch Dude, you need to chill, we're just joking around. No need to get offended. You made a simple mistake and some people found it funny. Relax. I saw your other thread and although we did make jokes here, multiple of us also gave you the real answer. There was no need for any of that.

    I'll admit it was funny, but at the same time I was pissed off (not over the jokes) and really tired, so I kinda overreacted. Sorry.
    Other than that, I successfully removed my CFW.

    Probably, but since the result would be guaranteed to be a brick, I don't think there's a tool that would allow it to be done.

    Restore a NAND backup, except instead of a NAND image, restore a file of the same size with all 0x00's or 0xFF's.

    Needless to say, your console will boot with a blue screen and will be essentially useless.

    I figured that would do it, though no modern program would allow that to happen, except for a hardmod.
