    So I'm following Plailect's a9lh guide, he says to remove emunand completely from the sdcard?
    Isn't the point of having the emunand to have a safeguard if anything messes up?

    Should I really be removing that?

    Sorry if this question is stupid.

    Gambia, The
    do whatever you want:
    no a9lh+sysnand cfw
    no a9lh+emunand cfw
    a9lh+sysnand cfw
    a9lh+emunand cfw

    Now you have to choose

    Some people prefer emunand (as do I) But you can use updated sysnand as well with a9lh. I prefer emunand because I feel it is still safer but if you brick sysnand somehow, you can always unbrick it with a sysnand backup so it should be alright (again with a9lh). Its just something that preference comes into place.

    It's as you feel safer, if you have a9lh you can boot decrypt9 and restore sysnand or you can leave emunand as a backup, but you always continue using emunand and keep sysnand 9.2 no problem it's all personal preference, as Reisyukaku said it's faster to restore emunand and why change something if it's not broken

    So basically since I have a9lh installed, I can use either? That's awesome that there's so many choices!

    Yep as long as you have a NAND back up and don't do anything too stupid

    A9LH is the best possible protection for your sysNAND so it makes emuNAND unnecessary. It loads before the OS does so no matter what you do to your sysNAND, you can just restore from a backup.

    Aside from flubbing the FIRM0/FIRM1 partitions or the secret sector.

    I don't think I'll be doing anything too extreme. 99.9% of the reason I even installed all this is because I'm dumping my friends cartridges and making them into .cia files to install for him and me.

    Between insane and insecure
    The emuNAND used to work as a safe block from updates removing your CFW, but with A9LH, it shouldn't be needed. I didn't completely remove mine, I simply moved it to another SD card in case it's needed at a future date.
