    Here.
    Hey, I need to know how to format the nand without losing arm9loaderhax.
    I could use TinyFormat, but i'm afraid it could leave me on 11.1, or restore my 9.2 backup, then use TinyFormat there.
    Thank you in advance.

    NO COFFEI!
    Regular system format from the settings. Impossible to lose A9LH by anything other than bricking or uninstalling (or if you use corebnik and disable some certain patches)

    I can't use the system format, the NNid is banned, so it doesn't connect to eshop etc.
    So, based on you answer, I can use TinyFormat and won't lose a9lh, right?

    You can use TinyFormat but system format doesn't require you to do anything with your NNID xD

    System Format actually does require a check in with the Nintendo servers to clear the NNID, you can't use it unless they can be reached and okay the wipe from their end if you have an NNID linked to the system.

    You can inject a blank nnidsave.bin to save yourself from formatting.

    You are safe using TinyFormat.
