    i recently noticed that sighax has been released and is it really worth the update to boot9strap?

    Yes,As Luma no longer will support A9LH from now on.It's pretty much required in order to be up to date.

    If you use Luma3DS , yes, or you cannot run future (7.1+) versions. Else, no.

    Well, I'm assuming you use Luma3DS, if you do, all future updates will be on boot9strap/sighax only. A9LH is dead at this point and updating from A9LH to B9S is easy! Plus b9s is unpatchable! :3

    You would update to B9S if you think that something like that would occur. Ninty always had the ability to patch it,and we would've been scared if they actually cared. But they never do,they just try to prevent the user to gain access to CFW. So if you're afraid of updating to newer HAX,then you'll just be more likely to lose it.

    There's nothing to actually gain by using Arm9loaderhax, it's obsolete now. Stick to Boot9strap, it's also ten times easier to setup and takes no time at all.

    It has to do with the fact that sighax has more control hence why a9lh had to be dropped.

    I am in a9lh, I assume. I will try to update to sighax, if it really works

    Would love to update too, to 11.4 of the 3DS so I don't get "update" problems (for now) but I dunno how to do that, or if it's worth it, apart from deleting the "update this" problems.
