    Hi there. I been using rxTools since last year and now i'd like to try Arm9loaderhax but.. will it delete my emunand? Does it brick the console and can i still use rxtools+ a9lh?
    Also can i set it up via android phone? I don't have a pc.
    What do you mostly do with A9LH? I heard you boot automatically in sysnand but no i like more to still have emunand just for safety reasons.
    Thank you :)

    You can choose to not delete EmuNAND, just dont follow the step to delete it :P
    You can still use RxTools with A9LH(CtrBootManager9) but why have it? It's a dead CFW and it will probably be useless on the next update.
    You can set it up via android, its easier if the 3DS uses MicroSD card, or use FTP to transfer the files

    Use Luma3DS. There is no advantage to using rxTools at this point.

    And yes, you can keep your emuNAND.

    With a9lh, you can take your emuNAND and put it on sysNAND.

    Nice but do i need to update to 9.2.0? Doesn't it work on 4.5.0. I like that ancient firmware as sysnand.

    This has nothing to do with Luma vs rxTools neither with emuNAND vs sysNAND neither with arm9loaderhax vs menuhax. You only lose your saves if you don't do backups.

    And please don't make new threads, a while ago you complained about the very same thing. Do you realize how annoying it is seeing dozens of posts like these every day?

    NO. YOU CAN UPDATE TO 11.0 SYSNAND WITH A9LH.

    This doesn't not answer the question. He asked "do I need to" and you answered "you can" :P
    So, the answer is "you can keep your sysNAND to whatever you like if you use an emuNAND, though you'll need to go through some firmwares during the installation".
    And then you can add stuff like "but there is no point, and you can update your sysNAND to 11.0 with a9lh" and whatever.

    There's no triggering a9lh by going into ds profile settings. You do not have to touch the console beyond turning it on, it is automagic. You have instant full system control, which means our code can overwrite Nintendo's before it even runs, allowing sysNAND cfw.

    Great. You said it autoboots no need for DS exploit. Does it autoboot into emunand without menuhax?

    You need SD card slot in your phone and a way to run sh files
