    relax.... Arm9loaderhax does not remove your emunand, and luma3ds is just a different cfw, believe me as long as you make backups your fine. Also, follow this guide to set your 3ds up with arm9loaderhax here: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-5-(arm9loaderhax) it's a bit of a process, takes a few hours, so post here if you have any problems with the process.

    Yes the one i sent you. But since you made an emunand you just need to do a few things extra. This guide starts before you make an emunand, so to catch yourself up, backup and delete your emunand. Dont worry its backed up and can be restored later.

    Yes you do, however dont delete your emunand as he / she said, thats just dumb.

    Anyhow, skip the emunand set up. Use otphelper to make backups of sysnand and emunand. Launch emunand, downgrade emunand to 2.1, get otp and restore emunand_original.bin

    This is put in very vauge terms. There maybe other things you need to do as well. Ive done so many arm9loaderhax installs i dont use the guide anymore.

    Actually, you no longer need OTPHelper. SafeA9LHInstaller can now get the OTP before installing A9LH.

    I know this, I only use it to make backups of emunand and sysnand because of the naming options. Which is why I said use otphelper to make backups....

    No it dont.... also, formatting is alot faster than recreation of emunand.
