    Is it possible yet to load something like Decrypt9 with arm9loaderhax in order to restore a NAND.bin? I accidentally bricked my sysNAND today. However, I have arm9loaderhax installed and it does still work, since CtrBootManager9 works with it.

    BTW it's an old3ds, if that matters. I also have a NAND backup from before and after a9lh installation on 9.2 if that helps.

    Assuming you're using AuReiNand, hold L to boot into your emunand via firmware90.bin, then go into the homebrew launcher and load up Decrypt9. From there you can restore your sysnand backup. Preferably the one that already has a9lh in it so you won't have to reinstall it.

    Or you can get the version of Decypt9 that boots from CtrBoot9 and use that instead.

    I'm actually surprised that that worked, as I got a bit confused and never thought to ask if you had an emunand on 9.2 before suggesting that. It seems I guessed correctly though, lol.

    With default settings, holding L boots sysnand with firmware90.bin and holding R boots with firmware.bin (I think its updatable in that mode, but don't try it without confirming that) otherwise, if you force sysnand by default, holding L or R will boot into the respective emunand version of the above.

    Indeed. I just hadn't bothered asking if he was booting sysnand by default and merely assumed he was. But luckily the assumption didn't seem to make an ass of me <_<
