    Make sure you're using a version of A9LH that can boot arm9loaderhax.bin from the CTRNAND. Transfer the Luma3DS arm9loaderhax.bin to the CTRNAND so your 3DS will boot without the SD card. That way, they might not notice that you have A9LH/Luma3DS installed, and don't send in the SD card. If they send it back with A9LH removed on 11.2, you can just reinstall it.

    Replace it you're self if you're worried or just take a NAND backup , send to nintendo and then when you get it back take another nand backup , restore original and if it bricks that means they changed mainboard(Highly unlikely)

    Nintendo won't bother fixing anything, they'll just give you another refurbished system in similar condition after charging you the full price of a used system for "repair"

    @pietempgba UNINSTALL A9LH. Nintendo checks for it. They have SDs with payloads to test, removing the .bin in your SD card ISN'T A SOLUTION. If not THEY'LL REFUSE YOUR CONSOLE.

    PS: Just dump the OTP and remove A9 with SafeA9LHInstaller. Then, you can install it again in 11.2 without the shame of re-dumping the OTP. Also, remove all the crap from the SD or send the console without it.

    Good luck.

    What kind of brick is? Depending of that, they can figure how did you screw the thing and reject it. And... Only a few days ago, a kExploit was released. They will see your case in deep.

    Restore a pre-A9LH NAND backup.

    Nintendo rarely actually repairs the units, they just transfer the content to a refurb and send that out.

    you can send it to me, if you want it professionally repaired and all of your data preserved (have New 3DS XL screens in stock). Send me PM here or contact on ebay: https://goo.gl/w5xiXx
