    Basically, it would ask you which CFW to install and you would choose, say, ReiNAND. It would patch signatures, install BBM or FBI, and download the needed files based on the current system version, along with some other things like an FTP client, a file manager, and that kind of stuff. Then, ask the user to copy there SD Card over to there computer, and once they have, format emuNAND, and tell the user to put there stuff back on the SD Card. Then just install Menuhax, and restart the system. That's just the basic concept, so I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of things here. Also, is it possible to format emuNAND without erasing everything on the SD Card?

    It could be possible, I guess, but installing CFW takes almost no time. A 1 click A9LH installer is what we need xD

    Sounds pretty cool! Someone's doing this with an OTPHelper I think but this can be done too! EmuNand9 is able to copy backups after formatting! There's an a ZIP app that the emunand9 creator uses

    Doing all of that separately isn't that hard. Plus, we have one-click setup in EmuNand9.

    It is.
    You put all the files you need to install A9LH into the /a9lh directory that's on the root of the SD-Card, boot into the application and WHAM, A9LH installed.

    Just bite the bullet, it'll be over before you know it.

    I did bite the bullet, and it was the slowest bullet ever.

    In other words a 9.2 homebrew launcher with a built in downloader?

    and no. you have to format the SD to make an EmuNand

    I think we're getting off subject.
