    Any restore NAND option that does not say (keep a9lh) REMOVES a9lh. To keep a9lh, use the (keep a9lh) option.

    As long as you use hourglass9 which is noob proof for NAND restoring,you shouldn't have much of a problem.

    If the NAND image that you are trying to inject already have a9lh installed on it, then no.

    Nand restore (forced) skip the necessary checks in the process, so if the nand image was corrupted that means you have a problem.

    It really depends if you have backed up a NAND with A9LH installed. If you already have A9LH installed on that NAND, then it will be restored with it. But if the NAND does not have A9LH installed, then of course it will be removed.

    Any option that uses NANDmin.bin (such as keep A9LH) will ensure that everything else is changed, except for FIRM0 and FIRM1 partitions. So those options will always ensure that it keeps A9LH.
