    Hello everyone.
    I've been watching the 3DS hacking scene from afar ever since the beginning, before Ninjhax was released and everything!
    I'm still a peasant and use Ninjhax and an emuNAND.
    I've been thinking about updating to A9LH lately, but I'm worried I'll brick, because when I downgraded to 9.2 originally, it failed [was lucky enough to have it only need to install 1 more title for it to be complete].
    I'm just worried that I'll hardbrick and won't be able to use my n3DS, which I had been saving up for for almost a year, and it would be a shame it not be able to use it...
    Another thing I was wondering is if I can transfer my Luma3DS emuNAND saves and games to my sysNAND after updating to A9LH?

    you can transfer your saves
    But do not let people pressure you to install a9lh but if you are willing and have time do it

    Pretend you are the most religious freak in the world and Plailect's guide is the bible. God then shall answer your prayers.

    The whole thing I'm worried about is hardbricking my n3DS, which would suck because there would be no way to save my 3DS after that

    If you are careful and take your time you should not brick

    Well, I think I'm gonna go through with it!
    I'll backup my saves, and wish me luck!
    I'll keep you all updated on what's going on with it.

    Just as a question, does JK's Save Manager require you to open the game before you can import a save?

    Do I still need to do the downgrade to 2.0 to get my OTP with RedNAND? I'm not sure if I should because I'm on a New 3DS

    I am!
    I'm re-installing Luma3DS for RedNAND right now

    I'm confused, on the guide it says EmuNand9 will say "Complete RedNAND Setup" but it says "Complete EmuNAND Setup"
    Did I do something wrong?

    Do you have the latest version of EmuNAND9, double check.
    Also, best of luck when installing A9LH, you won't regret it*

    *well, if you don't brick.

    I'm pretty sure I'm using the latest, but I already started the format, so if it doesn't work, I can just try again and update it.
