    That was fun! Remember finishing it at 2AM but it was so worth it!

    *shudders* Thats why I just want to leave it well alone. Remember too many palpitations from the first time round.

    A9LH:
    old
    can't dump bootroms
    8 hours to install
    as dead as menuhax

    B9S:
    Still supported
    Dumps bootroms by just holding buttons while booting
    Maybe 2 minutes to install at most
    Very easy to upgrade to from A9LH with SafeBoot9StrapInstaller for A9LH/Luma (most steps on https://3ds.hacks.guide/a9lh-to-b9s are copying files over)
    99.9% brick free (and those few bricks were MCU bricks, which are almost impossible to get now)
    Doesn't corrupt the secret sector like A9LH does (so attempting to use Gateway on sysnand just removes CFW instead of bricking)

    tl;dr compared to A9LH, B9S is easier to install, safer, and still supported.

    I did it in March of last year and it took me about three hours. Most of that was checking my SD card for errors. I was nervewracking, especially when I was downgrading.

    To compare, I put b9s on my nephew's 3ds about a month ago and it took 5 minutes.
