    You will be met with a black screen until you updated to 6.6
    It won't remove A9LH, the FIRM0/1 protection is still in place and will prevent that.

    It won't brick. So long as your CFW still has FIRM0/1 protection, you are always safe to update.
    But it would result in a black screen due to the older reboot code.
    So now that you are on 6.6, it's safe to update.

    It does appear like a brick, but it's not. 11.3 broke the older reboot codes. How? I actually don't know. I just know it does.
