    Hi guys, first of all sorry for my english and thanks to everyone who will try to help me.

    I am thinking about installing arm9loader on my Old3DS.
    I am already using ReiNand with RedNand.

    But there is some points I do not understand.

    1. We have to be under 3.0 version to dump OTP.bin - true or false ?
    2. We can't downgrade if we are in 9.2 - true or false ?
    3. I'm pretty sure that it true so, how to update to 9.2 to 10.3->10.7 because last firmware is 10.7
    4. I tried to update my 9.2 EmuNand to 10.6 using SysUpdater CIA but i failed, something about this ?

    Thanks in advance guys !

    1 - True
    2 - False
    3/4 - Use the system settings to update emuNAND without A9LH or both emu/sysNAND with A9LH (the CFW with sysNAND need the block FIRM0/1 feature)

    As far as I know, in emuNAND you can use sysUpdater in any version with a compatible CFW, that is, from 4.x to 10.7 you can use sysUpdater to update or downgrade to any version (1.0 to 10.7)

    The kernel11 hack is only needed for sysNAND downgrades

    By the way dude, you did a mistake : "Nintendo New 3DS XL - With A9LH (10.7 sysNAND and 9.2 redNAND)"
    It is 10.7 rednand nah ?

    somewhere
    You can use updated sysnand with A9LH if you want.

    As the @Sonic_Cee_Dee said, with A9LH you can have a updated sysNAND with a CFW

    Just after :
    1. Select "One Click Setup" and confirm. This can take a while.
      (If this fails or gives you an error do NOT continue or you may BRICK; you shouldfollow this troubleshooting guide)

    You can swap the emuNAND with sysNAND with Decrypt9WIP or just update sysNAND with System Settings with AuReiNand

    I think the OTPhelper is just cloning the 2.1 on sysNAND, not a big deal if you did everything on the guide

    Ok it seems to be normal.
    Thanks for the reply guys.

    Another little question, is it worth to get a 10.7 Sysnand with A9LH ?

    If you want more space in the SD and use a lot of VC games and GBA games, yeap, I just let the redNAND for tests and cause I'm too lazy to remove it xD

    Your welcome, thanks :)
    Btw, before the boot time for emuNAND was about 4~6 sec slower than sysNAND, now they have almost the same boot time (some CFW boot emuNAND faster, others boot sysNAND faster but the difference is about 0.20 sec, not a big deal) so now is up to you what NAND you want to use by standard

    No luck...
    I think that I bricked my 3ds.
    I tried everything but I'm booting with black screen and just the blue light....

    How far did you get in the process? Where do you think you bricked?
