    is there a way to dump my otp without downgrading back again? maybe renaming arm11.bin from the guide to arm9loaderhax.bin since from what i heard at the startup it IS possibile to get the OTP?

    You don't need the otp to update. Just use the file samus posted

    The stage0x5C000.bin will be in the "data_output" folder after you compile A9LH. But all you should need is the new arm9loaderhax.3dsx you compile using the newer build.

    Ack!!! Yeah, if you didn't keep a copy of OTP.bin then you would need to dump it again.

    The post linked earlier with the updater works just fine.
    No need for OTP.bin again, just run the installer from A9LH and it'll update it for screen init.

    But don't you need console specific files?

    The update method works, I just tried it.
    Not sure why you don't have your OTP anymore though. Did you delete it ? Why ?

    Not every file from it is console-specific. Stage, firm0/1, are generic. Sector.bin is specific.
    See above. The updater only changes a part of A9LH, the important console-specific part is already installed and thus isn't a problem.

    Lol ok. Well if you didn't delete everything, you don't have to do everything from the beginning to get your OTP.bin back (just restore your 2.1 if you still have it, then dump OTP, then restore your 9.2 if you still have it. Done). But you don't necessarily need it...

    Btw, the update method worked on my O3DS (XL) but not my N3DS (XL). Is the installer different ?

    If you need to dump your OTP again, all you would have to do is flash the 2.1 NAND dump that you created when you followed the OTP guide, grab OTP, then flash back to your current firmware. Unless you deleted those backups too. In which case you can go through the entire process again.
