    I am currently using A9LH with Luma 3DS, everything still works fine on my 3DS and stuff, its just I don't understand why the upgrade from A9LH to Signature Haxs boot9strap would be mandatory.

    Does Signature Haxs boot9strap offer anything better in comparison to A9LH? Like would it be worth it to update immediately?

    99% of all homebrew to come will only support boot9strap, so you should update

    So in short its just the new operating system for future Homebrew & CFW, but i'm also curious if it would offer any advantages/disadvantages in comparison to A9LH.

    Faster boot time and also true custom firmware (although there is no true cfw yet).

    Something that I haven't seen anyone say yet is that we now have arm11 code execution, so faster execution of code. (only arm9 code with a9lh)

    update to sighax mate, i was hesitant at first too.
    but the moment i read that luma will be updating for b9s from now on, it was decided that i update to b9s.
    the very cool thing about it is, it takes only a few minutes to install.

    Well, I haven't tested it myself, but other people are stating that they've got some significant changes.

    Where are the incontestable solid proof of that claim?

    There won't be any custom firmware, most likely. What's the point?

    ok fair enough, a lot of new homebrew, (namely luma payloads are being converted) which the .bin format will no longe be supported

    True CFW was possible with A9LH.

    Since it allows for some new things I think the devs will mess around with the possibilities and maybe we can get a new cfw with even more possibilities.

    No, they weren't true, the CFWs were modified versions of the OFW. Now some new things can be made. I'll find my source and come back here.

    You failed to understand what I meant. There's not that much interest in "true cfw". That's my point.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    You also don't understand what they meant. CFW on the 3DS was never a "modified OFW".

    Like what? You should check the 3DShacks Subreddit. This is a misconception
