Is there anything, so far, which uses Sighax to do something that A9LH couldn't?

    This is something I have been wondering, so far, it doesn't seem like anything is majorly different (other than not being able to use .bin files for payloads...) Is there anything, maybe like that I have heard might be possible, a truely custom firmware (like a modified Home Menu?) If not... Sighax (as of 5/22/2017) seems pointless. (unless you really care about updating Luma)

    You can dump the bootroms with GodMode9 B9S version. :P

    You won't ever know how awesome sighax is until you are a newbie trying to get perm cfw for the 1st time or a dev.
    It's also a big reason why we have the bootroms which will lead to even greater things.

    Yeah, but I have used CFW for about a week now, and I got A9LH just before Sighax was released. I've heard Sighax is way easier to install than A9LH, but I don't need to install CFW on another 3DS (as I don't have another 3DS). I wouldn't call myself "new" at this, but I've learned quite a lot in the past week about CFW.

    If you already have a9lh, sighax isn't really any different for the end user. But as I said before, it makes a world of difference for devs and prospective users. One side effect is any current 3ds (65 million) can be hacked via hardmod - for all eternity. Another is this will possibly lead to ntrcardhax2, which can hack all current 3ds's with just a ds flashcard and a magnet - for all eternity.

    If you already have a9lh it only takes 5 minutes to upgrade to boot9strap. And most of that time is just downloading the filed and placing them on sd
