So I lost my dump of otp of my 3ds pre cfw. So any possible way to dump it, without removing cfw? Because You know. If I managed to somehow brick, and I need that to unbrick, might be wise to have a copy. just for safe keeping, you know?

Having the otp won't help you unbrick. Just make sure you have a nand backup if you ever need to do a hardmod.

I don't the know the most effective way to get your otp, but you could do a ctr transfer to 2.1 if you really wanted it.

You don't need it for recovering from bricks. A NAND backup+Hourglass9 is just enough.
ok.

actually you can't double ctr transfer. Out of my knowledge luma will try to boot and it should have a ctrmount error.

You can always downgrade to 2.1 to retrieve it
not quite. I already tried it. resulted in ctr mount error. And if I did, how would I dump it. Without reinstalling arm9hax. (which personally reinstalling something you don't need to reinstall usually causes bricks)

The reason there is a CTRNAND error is because Luma3DS can't boot 2.1 AFAIK. The only other option is to uninstall Arm9LoaderHax (restore your original NAND backup), downgrade to 2.1, retrieve the OTP, and then restore a backup with A9LH. Also, you really don't need the OTP once you have A9LH installed tbh. Also, reinstalling A9LH probably wont brick you.

Do a 9.2 CTRTransfer and then uninstall A9LH
HOW. ok allow me to explain. last time I checked (and Im probably wrong) but there isn't a uninstaller for arm9hax. and if there is (assuming its bulit in to arm9hax) how would you access it?

Idk how I did it exactly but I once lost my otp too.
So what I did was downgrading to 9.2 I think and making a new EmuNAND
Then I made a backup of that fresh EmuNAND and restored it as SysNAND

That way I lost A9LH and could redo the whole process

Idk if that's what I EXACTLY did but I think that should be it.
