    Yes, use decrypt9, and don't click on the option that says "keep a9lh" as that will keep a9lh :P

    Restoring your old nand.bin with decrypt9 without choosing the option to preserve A9LH will delete A9LH. When you get your 3DS back from Nintendo, it will almost certainly be updated to 11.3 with no current way to reinstall A9LH.

    Hard mod and downgrade? If they actually repair his console and not just switch it out.

    Hardmod with a NAND backup is the only way I'm aware of.

    You could make a NAND backup of the NAND with A9LH installed, send it in for repair, get it back, hardmod, and restore the NAND backup. However, as previously mentioned, you might have a whole new motherboard, and the NAND backup will cause your 3DS to brick if that's the case. A downgrade on 11.3 is also impossible with a hardmod without a NAND backup from before 11.3.
