    What are the names of some important persons on the 3DS modding scenario I should know? I already know about AuroraWright, creator of the most used a9lh fork and CFW, smealum, father of Homebrew and Plailect, Lord and Savior of those who want to mod their console.

    Also, exactly when was a9lh created?

    Plailect didn't actually hack anything, he just keeps in touch with everybody and has a lot of knowledge, so he can keep the guide updated.

    a9lh was first discussed publicly on the 32c3 talk on december last year by smealum, plutoo, derrek and others...



    However i'm unsure who did the first implementation of a9lh. I think aurora(?)

    No, Aurora just forked another person's a9lh (I think don't quote me)

    That's true, he made plaisysupdater - but still, that was a modification of something that existed already

    Those still count.
    Otherwise Aurora shouldn't be there either as she forked Luma3DS/AuReiNAND from ReiNAND. xD
