    I HIGHLY DISCOURAGE MENUHAX E.T.C - GOT 1 HOUR~ CLICK HERE TO GET A9LH AND LUMA!

    This is a Boot Manager like method without using any boot manager at all! No GUI just instantly loads!

    Very simple - Download the following file: https://mega.nz/#!XN1gEQoT!oPXQNU2JhgM0KlYAoowBDyZoTV0iduRwmze9cbjD3oQ

    Setup MenuHax by going into the Homebrew Launcher and opening menuhax_installer.
    Now extract the files above and hop them into the root of your SD card.

    Boom done.
    How easy is that?

    Don't press anything = Luma
    Hold L on Boot = Homebrew Launcher

    Yes.I did the 2.1.0 Ctr transfer,was expecting a brick but didn't get any issues.After that a9lh wasn't hard really to install,however it did take awhile to transfer my emunand over to my sysnand.

    Uhm, You could do this without an external app or homebrew all together.

    The only thing you needed was menuhax-lesshax version + HBL cia and you're good to go. When i used to use menuhax that was my setup and i didn't have to waste a single second on boot managers.
    I understand you did it for convenience, just saying there are other ways to achieve this.

    This really isn't that helpful of a guide. It's just a handout.
    What about future updates? Are you going to update this file or explain how to do those updates? What if I want to make changes?

    To make changes just edit the .ini values - Its that simple.
    Yes this isnt really helpful but its only here for people who refuse to get proper a9lh.

    Honestly a more helpful guide for those people would be a guide to installing A9LH. We should really be discouraging MenuHAX usage at this point

    The bible guide already has everything you need.Anoughter guide would just create confusion.I say let everyone still on menuhax try luma first and get comfortable with it.Let the features and advantages convince them to switch over,and everyone will go to a9lh eventually when they are ready.

    I HIGHLY discourage using MenuHax - But one user on Discord refused to switch a SHIT TON even showing a lot of good things about it so I made this for him and then just shared it here.

    Is this also for people who cant play Pokemon S/M cartridges on their old emuNAND? :wtf:
    This would solve all my problems. :toot:

    Edit: Do I install homebrew launcher on sysNAND or emuNAND to get this working? Does HB launcher even work on 4.2 sysNAND? :unsure:

    Funny, that you just wrote that. To get A9LH I have to upgrade to 9.2 and that didnt work. For the Full-Story read my last threads and posts lol. But whatever, if you dont like to answer some questions about your "tutorial", uhm.. yea.

    Well then, To Answer you need it on your sysnand I belive - But you only need HBL on your system at all to get Menuhax setup, But if you already have it setup then no need just extract the files to root of your SD card and it will work.

    You need luma cfw in order to run sun and moon.Download the latest release of luma from github and it is compatible with emunand.It only takes 5 minutes to switch from rxtools to luma.Once you are ready you can also switch to a9lh using this guide https://plailect.github.io/Guide/ be shure to read everything and download all the files needed before following it.
