    There's a tutorial in my signature on getting your OTP and setting up A9LH. Just follow it and you'll be fine :)

    Given that you're already on 9.2, you should start at Part 4.

    I don't think it should, but use the version in the guide just to be safe.

    The version that's listed under "What you need" is the version you want.

    It says to use the latest version, so just use that.

    just follow this video, and you will be safe.



    and in the description you can see the "Online Alternative to Compiling Arm9LoaderHax:
    https://felipejfc.com/a9lh" <<<<< you can use this online website to compile your extracted OTP , this way you dont have to use the whole pc crap cmd stuff to compile your otp.

    be careful with the process. and A9LH is worth it man, i installed it on my 3 3ds'es.

    also on my n3dsXL. good luck

    mate, my suggestion to you "watch the video guide once" then decide if you wanna do it.

    it is actually simple if you follow it step by step not forgetting a single thing ;)

    you wont need to format emuNAND bro, just follow the guide and you wont lose anything ;)
    the tinyformatter app only formats some certain files from your emuNAND it does not delete anything at all, it doesnt touch your Nintendo3DS folder :)

    but make sure you always have a way to access HB menu, i used menuhax to always boot into it, very easy.

    didnt even need my oot card.

    oh , well buddy i have never needed the ninID, as i do not use eshop etc.
    so i dont know what it will do to that.

    all i know is that i was back to my emuNAND with all my cias showing normally and playing normally.
    all working etc.
    so i was happy with it XD
