    Problem is I'm skeptical of sending it into Ninty for reapairs since I have A9LH on my system and I'm worried if they'll do anything to it, so I'm asking for advice on what to do next.

    never ever send a hack 3ds to ninty for repairs because either they will refuse to repair or they will update the firmware after repairs.

    I wonder if Nintendo would go through the trouble of removing a9lh?

    since they remove miiverse posts with a9lh installed they most likely will and try, but i don't think they can since it's on the actual chip and would just have a fresh new motherboard put into the 3ds



    but what do i know, i'm not a dev or anything, just someone with experience lol

    If you have the a9lh that has the mini-cfw I dont think that they can directly tell. If they update it you should still have a9lh.

    To remove a9lh you need to flash the NAND with a backup so I wonder if they would go through the trouble.

    oh, i see, but aren't backups console specific, or can they just make a new NAND that's specific to, say, my system cuz that would be a lot of work so I dunno, Ninty's weird

    If they really knew their stuff, they could uninstall your a9lh, but I doubt they'd go to such lengths.
    Let's assume you're not on 11.0 but youre on a9lh. All they need to do is disable firm protection (by either loading a cfw without them or using Ninty cheat methods idk) then update the system normally and well RIP.

    Unless you have FBI and DevMenu all over you home menu LMAO.
