Hey all. Wish I didn't have to make this thread, but unfortunately, I don't have time anymore and I'm still at work. Sorry for the text wall, but I need to explain everything I can since my time is short. I got Pokemon Sun and Moon, was about to get the Munchlax event quick since tomorrow (possibly actually today) is the last day to get it done, only to be greeted by the ever so unwelcome forced system update screen telling me I have to install 11.2, so now I can't get the event done. I wanted more time to get around to installing A9LH and Luma3DS, but now I just have to do it if I want to get this event. Anyway, hoping you guys can give me a quick crash course of help so I can do this tonight. I have an O3DS, currently has 10.3 firmware. I already installed the Homebrew Launcher using browserhax a long time ago, and I was using it to launch httpwn so I could get the 2016 pokemon events. I hope that takes care of the step of needing HBL, at least, I think that's something I need to install A9LH. Also, I've previously built a temporary hardmod setup, so I have firmware backups of my O3DS when it was on 9.4, and I think also 9.5. So first questions: 1. If my system gets bricked installing A9LH, could I just reflash my 9.4 / 9.5 firmware backup and try again? 2. If I really need to, could I just update to 11.2 (I don't know how this will affect my HBL install), do the Sun and Moon event download, then reflash my firmware with my 9.4 / 9.5 backup and then install A9LH? 3. I suppose I should ask if there's a quick method to fool the game into thinking I'm on 11.2 already so I can just get the events without installing 11.2 or A9LH right now? A few A9LH questions: 1. I read part of the guide already, and saw the part about something having a high failure rate if you have any DSiWare stuff installed. Unfortunately, I do have a number of DSiWare stuff, and some have save data I want to keep, notably, the music programs I got. Is there a way to back up all that data, then delete the DSiWare so I can complete that step in the guide, and restore it after the whole installation is done? 2. I did ctch a few comments in a related thread someone made after installing A9LH recently about losing your data and stuff, and making sure not to skip the backup step. Is this the step to keep all your game saves and downloads and stuff from the SD card? 2b. Could I just back up the SD card and copy the game data back over? 3. Is there anything else important I should know about before installing A9LH, or is it all in the guide? I'm honestly not sure where to begin since I haven't had the time to really go over it. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I look through the guide... I wish it was easier. I'm sorry to bug you guys like this, but since I may only have tonight to install A9LH and Luma, whatever that does, I feel I should just ask all the experienced users so I can do this fast and do it right in the short time I have. I also want to be sure I can still recover my system using my old backups just in case something goes wrong. If you guys have any advice on doing this right and getting it done as quick as possible, it'd be very helpful. I would search if I didn't have a very short deadline... As always, thank you guys very much for your help in advance!
