    I have an... very stupid and avoidable problem. I want to switch to a non-screen init fork of A9LH (i dont like the topscreen light powering on and off at boot). But... I have a problem. I installed A9LH to lots of consoles and im not really sure that the OTP i have on a certain folder of my PC is mine. I can check it? I have an O3DS.
    Thanks.

    Be careful as every single otp is console-specific and installing it into the wrong one can cause a guaranteed hardbrick.

    I would just downgrade to 2.1 and get it again if you're even slightly unsure. It isn't worth the 100% brick chance if you get the wrong one.

    Edit: As an added note, mark your files better next time to avoid this process.

    I'm not sure if you can unless there is something for that released?

    But 2.1 doesnt boot with A9LH installed. And... The OTP locks itself with A9LH?

    If you don't know which one is yours, then you'll have to go down to 2.1 and get it again.

    This is why you should keep them organized and marked better. I've done 12 consoles and have each one in it's own folder, by <Name of Person><Console Color><Region><Type of Console>

    And yes, the OTP locks itself with A9LH. You'll have to go back down to 2.1

    As said above, your best bet is just getting it again. You can just restore a nand dump of 2.1 if you have it.

    I made a folder for every 3ds I installed a9lh with its otp and nand backup, which I recommend you do as well.

    But... The NATIVE_FIRM isnt the locker of the OTP? If i can enter OTPHelper (it has a A9 payload) and i try to dump it,what will happen?

    Maybe by looking at the date the otp file was created? If you remember the day you dumped it.

    I maybe wrong here but i believe reinstalling a9lh didn't need the otp file, as long as you're doing it from within a9lh itself.

    A9L can dump the otp by itself i think.

    You don't need the otp.bin to update/change a9lh, read pailect guide section about how to update a9lh

    So,i must put DataImputv2 files on the SD, the A9LH stages , safeA9LHinstaller and boot it? Anything more? There is risk of brick? GW works on Non-Screeninit fork?

    GW does not work with Aurora Wright's v2 A9LH (Whether screen init or non-screen-init).

    Why isn't it on your 3DS's SD Card?

    Ya it should be there on your 3DS's SD. That was my thought too when reading about your problem.
