    Hello, so I am selling my 2DS and I was wondering if and how I could completely wipe A9LH and Luma3DS from my 2DS, without a trace. I looked this up on google and only found threads from years back so I didn't want to brick my 2DS is things had changed. Thanks.

    Delete luma from CTRNAND and select the uninstall option on safea9lhinstaller.

    Also, it's not just because things are old or aren't the newest that they don't work or will brick your console. You don't always have to use the newest things.

    someone can correct me if i am wrong but
    the easiest method is to take your first pre -cfw-nand and restore it using the safea9lhinstaller without selecting keep a9lh

    Do you have the NAND backup you made whilst installing A9LH? If so, restore that backup, making sure NOT to enable keeping A9LH

    I have a NANDmin.bin file, does that count as something? And I don't know how to access al9hsafeuninstaller

    If you have NANDmin.bin.sha as well, that's good. If not, it's useless.

    Just download safea9lhuninstaller and put it in your payloads folder as "down_safea9lhuninstaller.bin". Hold d-pad down at boot to access it.

    Use GodMode9 or Decrypt9WIP to restore those files

    Put the file inside this on the root of your SD card, overwriting anything there.

    You don't HAVE to, but it's probably a good idea

    1. If you hold select, does the Luma3DS config menu appear? 2. Did you actually uninstall A9LH or did you just reinstall it?

    I just uninstalled a9lh, I didn't restore from nand though because I thought a9lh was going to do that.
