    So what exactly is this? From what I understand it will reinstalled a9lh, but with built-in payload that slightly increase boot time?

    It has the same exact boot time. The only difference is that is doesnt initialize the screen at the beginning like the default A9LH does. It is to be used with AuReiNand to re-initialize the screen when loading tools like Decrypt9WIP. I'm pretty sure FIX94's does the same thing but it is made especially for his tool: Arm9Select

    What the point of having no screen init?

    So you don't get screen flicker.

    More accurately this does init the screen, but it turns the backlight off and only turns it on when you load a payload that needs it.

    But I don't see my screen flicker anyway. It's just black?

    Then you're probably using a fork of a9lh that doesn't give screen flicker, so don't worry about it.

    Maybe your boot manager sets backlight to 0 by default anyway.

    But backlight is indeed on. By flicker you mean backlight one? But I need to watch really closely to know if it's on our off...

    How long ago did you install A9LH? Maybe screen init is there but you can't notice it or you have the older Delebile version. You could be also trying to look for the wrong thing based on our information

    Couple of weeks maybe? Decrypt9 was launching fine with bootmanager9 or what's the name of it

    So you only need your otp the first time you install a9lh? Not when updating/changing it?

    Yes. Even before this you could use dark-samus's updater.

    I'm so confused. I take the data_input files, and put them in there, I already have a9lh so no OTP.bin. How do I run it now?

    HELL
    Okay, so let me get this straight before I run the installer. I already have A9LH installed and am running the latest version of AuReiNAND. My current A9LH payload is from back when DarkSamus and team first released the screen-init updater, so I guess it is a bit outdated since it doesn't have the auto-shutdown-if-no-sd function that the most recent branch does. But what files do I need here? I have the A9LH folder on my root, and inside that folder is the download from above and the contents from the data_input.zip. Do I need my OTP.bin or nah? Like since I am just updating and everything is this whole procedure different? Or do I just run the installer like normal? I also renamed the installer to "down.bin" and put it in "/aurei/payloads/" for future A9LH updates, but I guess that doesn't really change much. Also, since this is designed to work with AuReiNAND, I will assume that the splash screen will still show up, right? Even with the screen init "disabled"?

    EDIT: I was bored and curiosity took hold of me. I guess this overwrote my A9LH install with Aurora's fork then. It is working perfectly. I wasn't having issues with flickering before, so I can't really account for that, but the no-SD shutdown is working as expected, so I guess everything flashed just fine. My splashes are still showing too, so all my answers I got myself I guess, haha!

    I'm not getting AuReiNand splashes on 3.11 after installing this.

    Well yeah... this version doesn't have screen-init. It says it right there. So your splash screen won't show without screen-init
