    I'm about to get arm9loaderhax, and to be honest, I'm a bit scared. I would like to know if I can:

    1. switch my sd card once I have arm9loaderhax, in case I run out of space

    2.what can I do to prevent losing my otp, it seems like everyone is losing theirs

    3. how stable is the process

    any suggestions to make the process easier would be greatly appreciated :D:D:D

    1-yes you can just drag and drop the files, no emunand transfer
    2-just upload the otp to a bunch of online hosting sites Like google drive, mega ,one drive as well as multiple locations on your PC and hard drives , if you have.

    1) Yes
    2) BACK IT UP TO MULTIPLE PLACES, i.e Online File Storage, anywhere really

    1. Yes. Just format it to fat32.
    2. Backup. BACKUP. and most importantly. BACKUP. Upload it to mega, google drive, hell even onedrive. Make sure you keep it somewhere safe on your computer as well.

    As for easier, just follow Plailect's A9LH Guide to the letter.

    Googling "OTP hub" doesn't show related results, so here's a direct link 3dsotphub.hopto.org (The same in my signature)

    Not as stable as Nintendo's FW. :creep:

    Seriously, it's pretty safe, the chance of bricking is ever so slight, and the reports of people bricking almost always come down to user error, such as people rushing the process or downgrading their SysNAND directly to 2.1.
