    I don't have a backup of my OTP (MY fault entirely, I don't think I took it off my SD card before formatting EmuNAND). I have A9LH set up so what's the easiest way to go grab my OTP again? I have a pre-A9LH 9.2 NAND backup, will I have to reflash that, lose A9LH temporarily, redo the who downgrade process and grab the OTP or is there an easier way to do it?

    Once I've grabbed it can I just flash my current NAND (If I make a backup of it) so I don't have to also re-install A9LH? Or do I have to go through the steps again?

    The guide now makes you install A9LH right from 2.1 and from there makes you flash your NAND backup with Hourglass9.

    This is why i have a backup of my 2.1 nand. Just in case this happens. I read that people are storing their OTP.bin's in their nand with Godmode9. But this is a major reason why i upload nand backups and my OPT to multiple clouds.
    Also? Why use emunand when you are on a9lh? I used to but noticed that updated a9lh sysnand is as safe as emunand personally.

    I have searched my computer and found I have an OTP.bin, however I'm not sure if it's for my current 3DS (I had an O3DS before, now I have an O3DS XL). It was created on the same day and same time as my 9.2 sysNAND backup, is there any way I can check if it's for my XL? I think it is but wanna be certain

    No. You can only check on an N3DS. Which you don't have.
