    Hello.

    I have some questions.

    I had used otpless when I operate a9lh installetion.

    Now, I don't have otp.bin.

    Is it necessary for me? and how to get otp.bin from 3ds that is installed a9lh?

    Nope. The OTP is only used to install A9LH. If you already have A9LH installed, you don't need your OTP. Not to mention the installer dumps the OTP right on the spot. So even if you did need it, it's dumps during the install process.

    Gambia, The
    don't give out wrong information. it is always good to have a backup of your otp.

    when we get an Implementation of sighax we can dump it anyways.

    I am not wrong. There is literally no reason to continue clinging onto the OTP. Your OTP is only needed to get the keys to install A9LH. Once A9LH is installed, you might as well delete it.
    It was only recommended to be backed up during the early A9LH days because it was needed to generate your personal arm9loaderhax installer. Nowadays the OTP is dumped on the spot by SafeA9LHInstaller and installed using that dumped OTP.
    Chances are, with how early Sighax will boot, it will most likely not need the OTP. It will most likely need the bootrom to be dumped.

    the only thing needed with the otp is a hash of a part of it to install k9lh lol, which is used for secret keysector encryption
    you can always dump that hash with k9lh installed anyway
    sighax does not need a boot9 dump or an otp dump on its own to work lmao

    Not really, like I said, it was only really recommended back in the day because you needed it to compile your own installer. Since it's dumped on the spot, it's really not needed anymore.
