Hi,
is there anyway to roll back my n3ds system as if it had never been hacked?
I hacked my device earlier but no big difference happened according to me. Can I turn everthing back somehow, I couldn't find any tutorial for that. I've got Sysnand backup or file9 folder etc.
please help

What fw are you on?
If you're on 11.3 and have a nand backup, currently you will have to do a hardmod.
If you're on 11.2 or lower you can rehack it, and then if you have a nand backup you could restore it.

Edit: This is all assuming you don't currently have a9lh

Use decrypt9 to restore your NAND backup that you made when followed the guide. Assuming you used 3ds.guide

Ah, okay. You want to get rid of a9lh? Why?

There are a lot of awesome features that come along with it. Install unsigned cias, use custom themes, brick protection, nand rewritability etc.

Is there an issue it has that you think would be fixed by getting rid of a9lh or something?

As long as you update Luma to the latest one. You can update your 11.3. cos I have. I've got access to homebrew launcher and can go online. Ntr selecter works too. So there's no real reason to put your system back to stock. Plenty of good reasons to keep a9lh and luma 3ds.

If you do restore you nand and update then you'll have a console that doesn't have a9hl on it, or CFW.

If you want to rehack it later on in 11.3, it won't be possible because this current version has basically blocked it.

If you have Luma 6.6 just update your 3ds through system settings to 11.3 you will be fine.

If you have a9lh (which you do) and are using newest luma (6.6), update your system like you normally would. It is safe, you will not lose hax.
