    Or you know you could move onto A9LH and update to 11.3, 11.4 or whatever FW Nintendo ever releases? Do yourself a favour and stop using outdated haxes. Besides I'm fairly confident menuhax was patched ages ago.

    Menuhax+luma3ds+EMUNAND 11.3=fine, you are still running menuhax from earlier sysnand.
    SYSNAND 11.3+menuhax+anything=FAIL
    Sysnand 11.3 currently stops EVERYTHING that could run Luma3ds UNLESS arm9hax is there first.

    Solutions for 11.3 sysnand without arm9hax
    1) wait for sighax to be released, which will allow creation of signed firmware updates (may take a while).
    2) wait for a new 11.3 exploit (may take a while)

    But why do you insist on continuing to to use Menuhax? A9LH provides far better protection for your CFW and saves you so much space in the process.
    Not to mention it's been boiled down to a like 15 minute process to install.

    That is complete misinformation. It is certainly not 15 minutes. Someone at AGDQ did a New3ds otpless speedrun and got a 1 hour time, and that was a speedrun.

    How old was that speed run? Because I have setup A9LH twice already and it only took me 15 minutes to actually install A9LH.

    It takes 15 minutes to do a NAND backup, so I agree with @jupitteer.

    But getting A9LH is more than just installing it. You have to make a NAND backup, ctrtransfer to 2.1, install A9LH, configure it, and restore the NAND backup, constantly taking out the sd card and putting files on it. A9LH is completely worth it, but it is by no means a fast install.

    Yes, the NAND backup is important and the most time consuming part. But it doesn't take an hour to actually install A9LH.
    I have seriously been installing A9LH since the first public release and I have used every single method as well.
    Don't act like I am some kind of newbie scrub, I know what I am doing and what I am talking about.

    Yes, it does take more than an hour. For my friends, new3ds and not, I have personally A9LH'd 7 3ds's. I know what I'm talking about.

    Nobody uses menuhax with sysnand only, and with emunand it works fine.
    You won't be bricked but you also don't really need a9l as its just an entrypoint and the end result is the same. If you're okay with a bit slow boottime and emunand then feel free to use menuhax.
    Its impossible to install a9l in 15 minutes.

    Is this really relevant or are you guys really just going to go after me based on my experiences?
    You know why it took me only 15 minutes to install? Because I backed up everything and downloaded/setup all of the files beforehand. Thus I was able to skip steps that were already covered. Without those steps the installation took me only 15 minutes to go through.

    But for a first-time install like the OP would be doing, it would take more than an hour. Intentionally or not, you are being misleading.
