    Hi,

    here is the situation:

    I have and EU NN3DSXL with 9.2 sysnand, menuhax and reiNAND CFW 3.3 10.6E. Everything works fine, but since everyone is switching to a9lh I'd also would like to go in that direction.
    The problem is, I installed over 50 games on my emunand, which was a very timeconsuming task and I would love to avoid installing all the games I need once again. Is there a way to switch to a9lh from my current setup without wiping out all game that are already installed on my 3DS? Otherwise I'd probably keep everything as it is, since the advantages I get from the a9lh aren't enough to compensate all the time that will be needed to restore everything.

    Thanx in advance.

    Regards,
    tpax

    Follow the giude, you format your emunand, but it gets restored after youve got your otp.
    Nothing is changed.

    Use a different SD if you're worried.

    Make sure its not too small. The step where you backup sys emu and xor prolly over 5 gigs alone. Unless you take your card out and move each file after each backup

    Just stay on emunand and menuhax. It's not worth the effort and risk.
