    Vote on the poll. The users have reason for recomendating A9LH or its a dangerous proceture?
    And... What is the best guide?

    This poll is meh as I can only select either N3DS or O3DS. I myself have 4 consoles with A9LH and have modded 28 consoles for others to A9LH, without any unsolvable issues.

    This guide is the best
    There's no real danger unless you're blind or like skipping steps or slept like 1 hour in the day you're going to install.
    And yes there's a reason for recommending a9lh because its future proof, fast and offers brick protection

    I've installed A9LH on several systems now, without a single brick. My bricks seem to happen through human error or skipping step. It's extremely rare to brick if you just follow the guide.

    Pretty much everyone. No other guide is as well maintained and up to date

    And only if you didn't format before the downgrade or had your band fragmented or damaged (by ahem gateway)

    Like, 5 million bricks it's all Margen's fault!!! ;O;
    But in all seriousness, I've yet to finish installing A9LH for the first time. I got bored halfway through setting it up on one of my 3DSes. :sleep:
