    I recently got a 2ds that needs updating to 9.2. I was thinking about following this tutorial, , then once on 9.2, uninstalling rxtools, and then installing a9lh and luma using paliect's guide.

    Would this work? would I need to format my sd once on 9.2? and would I brick doing this?

    I'm kinda new to hacking, sorry :)

    there is no need to go to 9.2, just start on whatever version you are on. rxTools is no longer updated and nobody recommends using it. it is a waste of time trying to go to 9.2 first.
