    You can't install a9lh on 11.4. Best you can hope for is homebrew. Even that will be tricky - I think all the free entrypoints are patched currently.

    As far as I'm aware, no. There are no kernel exploits for 11.4, so userland homebrew is as far as you can get for now. When a method of installing a9lh becomes publically available, it will be included in 3ds.guide

    Currently your choices are mainboard replacement or a 3DS that's on 11.3 or lower firmware.
