    My current set up is o3DS 9.2 sysNAND/10.7 emuNAND booting with themehax and Rxtools.
    Should I finally hop aboard the arm9loaderhax train? Or should I just copy my whole SD card and be a pleb with my current set up.
    One thing to note is I don't want to lose my emuNAND though, so if I were to use arm9loaderhax, can I inject emuNAND to sysNAND?
    Thanks in advance guys.

    a9lh. Maybe I'm losing it but it seems my console now boots faster with a9lh than it did when my console was unmodified. Also, brick protection.
    EDIT: Also, yeah, you can inject your emuNAND to sysNAND once you're done. I did it and everything's working fine!

    how long does it usually take? Not sure if I should do it this evening or wait for the weekend... Also, can I take breaks over steps? Like for example, do step 2 which is dump OTP then go to bed, go to school and then do step 3?

    It took me a whole day but that's because I took a lot of breaks and made more backups than I needed to. Also, it's not a good idea to take that long of a break while setting up a9lh because you could come back the next day and the guide may have changed.

    Ok cool. One last question, should I start with my fresh SD card or my old one with all my junk in it?

    I'd say your fresh one but it doesn't really matter.

    Well for me it took three hours. Theres a lot of NAND dumps you need to make and a few downgrades. Its well worth it; i have it on my 3DS and I use it daily.

    So far I have 4 backups! (Currently downgrading emuNAND to 2.1)

    Now I think I'm at the scariest part of the installation, the one click set up... *cue scary music*
    This kind of feels like climbing a hill on a scary roller coaster :shy:
