    Hi,

    It's been a long time that I stopped watching 3DS scene actuality...

    Are there some tips for a Old 3DS XL (SysNand 4.5/Rx EmuNand 10.7) ?

    I heard about AL9H or something like that, what is it?

    Thanks.

    Arm9LoaderHacks is used to boot into a cfw to reduce boot times and just be convenient.
    Everyone is either using AuReinand(a fork of Reinand) or CakesFW if using A9LH.

    When I switched from Menuhax to a9lh I was kinda leery of the process, but I regret nothing.

    Here's the guide by Plailect to set everything up.
    Since you're already on CFW you can skip most of it right up until after setting up emunand. (Anything that says rednand, just read it as emunand)

    Thanks but what's the use for that?
    A9LH just makes the boot faster?

    As well as being capable of getting rid of emunand and keep everything on sysnand, updating sysnand while keeping exploits and hax, as well as cfw and pirated stuffs

    Personally I like to keep emunand in that rare case that I screw something up. :yay3ds:

    Might as well just keep a sysNAND backup save. With A9LH if you screw up, just restore it.
