    He could do it three ways...
    1. Show the contents of SD/boot9strap
    2. Show the console running Luma v7,1 (Only Sighax can)
    3. Show the Luma updater v2.0 where the verified payload is "sighax"

    Can someone tell the benefits or disadvantages of A9LH and sighax compared to each other. E.G can any of them be patched or make the console unusable in case someone make something fool

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    From how I understand it, Derrek's variant of SigHax can't dump boot9, boot11 or OTP like boot9strap. So why would boot9strap not be the one intended for devs?

    Because having it launch a payload from CTRNAND is effectively the same thing (everything installed to the console itself) while also allowing you to actually update the payload without reinstalling sighax every time. What if Luma accidentally pushed out an update that didn't work and someone installed it permanently using sighax? Hope they have a hardmod. Without the capability of launching a payload from SD card, you lose the brick protection that A9LH and now B9S give you, since you can always boot GodMode9 from SD and restore a NAND backup.

    Those people would be silly.

    A9LH was a somewhat dangerous install, at least at first. Even then, downgrading to 2.1.0 is obviously something that would make some people uncomfortable, even if you're only on 2.1.0 for 5 minutes.

    Sighax doesn't require any downgrades, there's nothing risky about installing it using https://3ds.guide/. There's a reason *hax support stayed forever even though A9LH has been out for well over a year, but is now dropped alongside A9LH - there's no excuse to stick with the old stuff anymore.

    maybe now i can fix my new 3ds in BOOTROM screen with failure
    00F800EE FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF 00000000 00000000 - NCSD header in sector 0 is corrupt (failed signature check).

    With a hardmod or wait until ntrboothax is released assuming you have a compatible ds flash cart (and until it is released nobody knows which ones will be compatible).

    I think @Apache Thunder said in this thread the AK2i would work because it has a publicly available flashing method or something?

    @Apache Thunder do you have any more details? (I love my ak2i and still use it on my 3ds to this day!)

    You risk bricking each time you write to the FIRM
    This is written in the sighax faq, what does this mean, is it for a9 or b9s

    This is the old ntrcardhax for getting code exec on up to 11.3. Afaik he never released the actual flasher part, was trying to get it working as a .3dsx payload. Nice proof of concept for reflashing the cart for alternate purposes though.

    That's exactly what it sounds like, and it's for both. Anytime you mess with the NAND you risk a brick; that's just the nature of these types of hacks. Another reason the guide suggests Boot9Strap over Sighax, with the verification checks before it installs.
