    I installed a9lh on my New N3DSand have a strange issue with turning power-saving on and off.
    I appears to have reversed, now when I turn power-saving off I get a blueish tint to my screen and a yellow tint when I turn it off.

    I think that's how it works, it makes the screen darker by adding a blue tint. Not an issue.

    It's a9lh, not a2lh.

    There's ARM9 and ARM11. I don't remember if there's ARM7, that may be the DS lite.

    ARM2 sounds like crap.

    Yes, I get a blue tint when on and yellow when off.
    I have an O3DSXL that is the opposite of my new N3DSXL.

    on both, TN and IPS is yellow when off and blue when on. If in your 3ds is inverted, then maybe something is wrong.

    That's what mine does but I for some reason my O3DSXL is yellow when power-saving is on and blue when off.
    Weird.

    Did you restore a nand backup after ctrtransferring and installing A9LH?

    The screen calibration and stuff is believed to be in the Config driver's save (and this part is far from being widely understood).
    CTRTransfer, by definition, makes a mashup of someone else's NAND with the bare minimum of files from yours to keep it "your console", which is known to cause screen miscalibrations until you restore a backup!

    It goes without saying that, if you value video fidelity, you should be keeping "power saving" always off :)

    No my cfw install went okay. I just find it strange that my O3DSXL with no cfw is yellow when power-saving is on and my a9lh NN3DSXL is blue when power-saving is on.
    Strange but there's nothing I can do about it now.

    Just different factory calibrations then, the screens were likely made at very different times, probably from different companies, and calibrated (maybe) by different employees with possibly different machines...

    I think I've figured it out.
    If I select the red or blue theme and turn power-saving off, I get a more vibrant red and blue than I do with power-saving on.
    So I guess that's what power-saving does, it dims the colour range.
    I also realised that I have an IPS top screen on my NN3DSXL.

    Between insane and insecure
    Did you test this before installing A9LH?
