    Can I do this?

    I restore a backup of my NAND from before A9LH is installed, and I keep everything that A9LH needs to run on the sd. Could I just restore a NAND backup with A9LH installed, then after restoring, I would have A9LH back? That way, I could easily switch between Sysnand and Sysnand A9LH?

    Would that work?

    a9lh lives in the firm, if you restore the firm is restored too = no a9lh. So you can go to before you installed it sure. I don't know how stable decrypt and emunand9 will be running from the homebrew menu opposed to boot-time payloads which seemingly always work.


    Long story short, you should be able to go back and forth as long as you have the proper back-ups.

    I would use a hardmod. (My 3ds is getting hardmodded). Would that be better than decrypt9?

    Since you write your backup directly to nand it should be really reliable.

    If you use Hourglass9 you can restore using ANY of your backups and it will keep a9lh

    *edit* sorry I didnt read the question in full, my bad. If you wanted to restore a version without a9lh and go back to a9lh later, I mean yeah I guess you could as long as you are still able to restore at all (ie, dont update)

    I never questioned his intentions but he wants to be able to get in and out of a9lh on a whim.

    I'll be honest with you, beyond some kind of development thing or test I can't think of a good reason to want to get rid of a9lh.

    He was talking about getting a hardmod, I don't think the shops would like that~

    I'm just wanting to know if that would work, just in case if A9LH starts to stop working. I think the hardmod I'm getting (I've already sent it off) will be a great investment since it can unbrick the 3ds nearly 100% of the time.

    Neato, I've heard the newer systems are kinda hard to solder but apparently the original 3ds is really complicated.

    That's why I sent it to a person who has done many hardmods before. He doesn't do the original 3ds non xl since the CLK point is so tricky.
