    I'm using that guide everyone says is the 'best' guide for installing CFW, and I'm stuck on a certain step.


    "Section IV - Restoring the System"
    It says "If your backup is of a version between 3.0.0 and 4.5.0, do the following"
    I'm not sure what it means by this. My N3DS is on 9.2 so do i skip this step?
    and go straight to installing the FBI thing?

    Your back-up is at 9.2, your console is at 9.2. Why do you bother about that step?

    I was just following step by step, didn't want to miss anything. So I skip and go straight to section 9.2?

    If you have installed A9LH, and it says "Sys 9.2.0-20U " in system settings, just update and then inject FBI

    Yes, it is. If anything happens you can always boot Hourglass9 and restore the backup. That's one of the beauties of A9LH.

    wait, seriously? I can simply update firmware and still keep FBI and everything?!
    is the file for restoring the NANDmin.bin?

    Yes, seriously :) Welcome to the new world.
    Yes, NANDmin.bin is the backup of your NAND pre-A9LH.

    Hourglass9 will keep your A9LH even if you're using that back-up so you're safe.
    Just back-up frequently afterwards to have some safeguard.

    If you ever want to remove A9LH, run the SafeA9LHInstaller to un-install.
