    I have a question about this part.

    To remove the risk of small bricking, i need to format my 2ds... but what does formatting do exactly?

    Does it force you to update if you format it?,
    Does it remove menuhax?
    If i format the 2ds, do i have to start the guide all over again?

    Cleans the 3DS from stuff that could be the cause of failed downgrades

    It does not force you to update

    It does remove menuhax

    You have to remove the SD card before you dpwngrade, so you only have to reinstall menu had after the format :)

    Yes, the guide should tell you that right?

    Well format, reinstall menuhax then reboot into menuhax then downgrade

    Or format with the Sd card in and repeat part two just in case :)

    Uh, if you are doing the A9LH Guide, dont worry about the H & S app, since while doing the CTR Transfer it replaces the Apps too. If you feel unconfortable, you can always re-inject the clean backup of it :3

    I have a question too, taking advantage of the topic already created. My 3ds is with an old version of FBI installed on SYSNAND over H & S, so the app icon only appears when I enter into sysnand with signature check disabled, I could downgrade normally with no worries that H & S would be re-installed , Or would I have to inject the beckup?

    I don't think that would interrupt the process in any way.
