    So my Hard drive died and I lost my OTP, never backed it to my Gdrive. Is it possible to get it again? Do I need it? My 3DS has A9LH on it already.

    Backup your current NAND, then restore your 9.2 NAND backup, and do the downgrade again to 2.1, grab your otp.bin, then restore your current NAND.

    You really don't need your OTP. It was only really needed for installing a9lh and thats it. If the OTP was needed then OTPless wouldn't have been added to the guide.

    If you're on A9LH CTRNAND Build & Luma3DS 6.6.
    Follow what @Jayro said, when you go back to 9.2, you have to remove A9LH first using lastest SafeA9LHinstaller, then contiune.
    When I try to get OTP from my OTPless one, it always give me an error.

    Well if I don't need OTP currently then I guess I won't bother. I remember having supposed to have it backed up, but @xtheman166 made a valid point that OTPless doesn't even use it so why bother going back for it? And the thought just occurred that if I lose my A9LH abilities, chances are I will be on a FW I cannot put it back onto at this point.

    I agree, when I did I have to be careful Or I'm losing A9LH. Just added info if you really need it.
