    If you've already done it then you'll know how safe it is, what was the point of this question?

    It clearly states that in Plailects guide, read before asking questions please. Or if you're to lazy to read:

    If you already have a CFW setup on any version between 9.0.0 and 9.2.0, change menuhax to type 1, set your menuhax trigger to D-Pad down, then start the guide at Part 4. Note that anywhere "RedNAND" is mentioned, you can pretend it says "EmuNAND" instead as they are very similar and the instructions will be the same other than that.

    You CAN'T skip any step (unless you like bricked 3dses), in that case, go ahead, be blind and start installing a9lh skipping crucial steps

    If you have an emuNAND set up then you can skip to part 4 of the guide, please don't spread misinformation

    Yeah I'm not spreading misinformation because you can have a patched emunand(twl or agb patched) and if you decide to downgrade to 2.1 with this you're FUCKED

    You can't downgrade to 2.1 with patched TWL_Firm though, plaiSysUpdater will throw an error at you if you do, I'm not entirely sure if patched AGB_Firm is an issue either, I believe I had it on my emuNAND when I went through A9LH set up, no issues here

    That's the reason you have to start from step 1, you have(or should) set up from scratch to better or ideal results ;)

    You don't have to, most users don't touch TWL_Firm as they don't need to, this is why the guide actually recommends for you to start at part 4 if you already have an emuNAND (Hell it even has troubleshooting in it if you actually do have patched TWL_Firm installed), so there's really no harm in starting at part 4 if you're already halfway there in the first place.

    Read the guide you meme. If you already got emunand, you can jump straight to step 4 like I did.

    The only guide you should ever follow when setting up A9LH is this one:
    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki
    It's the most up to date and is the go to guide for A9LH, I suggest you follow this one from part 4 to avoid any issues.

    There was a guy on here that found out all his nand backups were corrupt probably due to the quality of the SD card he used to dump. As long as you have a nand backup it's fixable

    Don't matter if you don't like reading, you want A9LH and are frightened you might brick you system? You follow that guide, no questions.
