    Hi everyone,

    I want to remove A9LH from one of my two n3DSXL (I'm selling it).
    I actually did the OTPLess A9LH install a few days ago following the last version of Plailect's guide.
    What I have : - 9.2 NANDmin.bin backup
    - 11.1 NANDmin.bin backup
    both of these dumps were made after the A9LH install.
    I've read about using Decrypt9WIP (restore sysNAND without keeping A9LH) or SafeA9LHInstaller (that seems to have an "uninstall" function) but my console refuses to launch these programs. I only get a black screen after trying to launch it from the HB Launcher.
    I've restored my 9.2 backup with Hourglass9 (keeping A9LH - no choice) to try and see if it would help launching Decrypt9 or SafeA9LHInstaller from 9.2 but it doesn't. I'm kinda desperate here.
    Does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

    You need to launch Decrypt9/SafeA9LHInstaller using their respective a9lh payloads(eg. Decrypt9.bin)

    Question with arm9loaderhax is the otp file even needed?

    Once arm9loaderhax is installed, you don't need it anymore. But you might as well back it up just in case(In order to save you from downgrading to 2.1 again just to get the OTP).

    But why?

    I think it has more value selling it with A9LH. It would be too much hassle on the buyer to install A9LH again if he prefers it.

    Hopefully you used decrypt9 and restored 9.2 NAND backup. Otherwise buyer is stuck in userland...

    I agree with you guys, but some people don't want to hear about hacking so I just want to be sure that I can put the console back to its original state if the buyer wants it.

    Yes, it's back to 9.2 and I can put it back to 11.1 A9LH in a few minutes now if that's what the buyer wants.

    Good! I would also sell it @ 9.2 so they have the option to install A9LH, unless they ask for it to be 11.1 like you said.

    If I were you I would sell it to someone that appreciates it being modded - you can get more for it.

    But make sure to not include any games with it. That's VERY illegal.

    True. I meant pre-installed games, though. Like from the Freeshop.

    Sell it with Freeshop installed. Completely legal and the user's can install what they want without you having any liability.
