    Is it ok to copy a9lh.bin to the CTR NAND with FBI for SD-cardless boot?

    ive seen this before, but then if you do boot with sd-less method, does it just load like a home menu fresh or with your stuff installed on? Oo

    Make sure you update your a9lh install too

    If no sd is shown it loads like a regular homemenu without a sd card meaning dsiware, folders, and your cart are their and thats it.

    No if you take out your sd card with arm9loaderhax.bin in your ctrnand your stuff won't show.
    If no arm9loaderhax.bin is on sd but sd is in then you games should still show

    If you re-insert your SD after booting, your stuff should show up and be usable. Tested with ShadowNAND. I installed this new method, but haven't done anything with it yet, besides making sure it technically worked.
