I'm going to consider A9LH after I buy a/find my charger.
For me, as a noob, it took around 4 hours all in all, with Emunand, at the time being rxTools (now Luma3DS)
Looks like this is going to be a weekend project, then.
It's worth the time, plus you can use splash screens and a 100% boot rate. Very quick and quite minimal imo.
3 or 4 h on n3ds
Yeah, it takes a lot longer than you might think the first time, especially if you're being very very very careful. Which you should be.
If you have EmuNAND with a huge SD card and a zillion games installed, the SD backing up and restoring part will also take a while.

No way a first timer should be doing this in one hour. Maybe it took you an hour the second or third time, but one hour is careless.
First timer, 4 hours xD
Backup sysnand and emunand, backup formatted emunand, downgrade and flash it to sysnand, get otp and flash a backup
Not that hard, took an hour and 30 minutes or 2 hours
If it really does take that long, then there should be an A9LH install speedrun at SGDQ! xD
4 hours is accurate, if you follow the steps carefully, as you should, there's a lot of backing up of NANDs, and transfers aren't fast, depending on your SD card. I guess it's not optimal when using the default SD cards. I have 5 3DSes, and so it was a 2 day period, on and off. Definitely worth it.
Well, again, that's for someone who is familiar with the process, and also that's if nothing strange happens.
A first timer really should be carefully reading and rereading the instructions.
If it's an O3DS, it might take around 2~3 hours. If it's an N3DS then it might take 3~4 hours (OTPHelper has to validate files and patch the NCSD header which takes longer). If time is a problem for you, try doing Step 4 in one day and Step 5 in another, although Step 5 is relatively fast if you wanna' do the backups at a later point.
Almost a month for me but i used the old tutorial
So this isn't relevant for now
wow that sd card must be slow
It took me about a month to contemplate whether it'd be success full or not due to the brick rate and things, even though I only own O3DS's
Read my edit . I got softbricked because of my user error. So it took a month to finish installing A9LH. Newer one should be better and safer.
I'm all for this! We should have tournaments, everyone with the same stock 3DS, same PC, same downgrading software already on it.
What is SGDQ ? Sounds fun, although quite exhilarating
