    If you choose the "keep a9lh" option in decrypt9 then you won't lose your a9lh. Otherwise you'll lose a9lh.

    I'm not sure, I think if you downgrade with sysupdater I think it won't brick, I don't know about downgrading using a NAND.bin 4.5 :/ maybe only the experts here can help you.

    It will be safe. All the changes made by a9lh will be removed by the restore as long as you disable the a9lh protection

    Out of curiosity, what's the point of restoring to 4.5? I can't imagine there's anything you'd need the MSET exploit for when you have a9lh

    He's probably wanting to use his Gateway card, and, y'know, Gateway doesn't support A9LH yet™.

    If he wants to use his Gateway, he should create an emuNAND, downgrade it to 9.2, install the gateway cia on it, then when he wants to boot gateway mode, launch the emuNAND, open the cia, hold B over boot gateway mode in the menu, and choose to boot gateway in sysNAND mode

    Probably wants to sell it. Many people don't want a modded device....

    1. Note also that 4.5 is likely where they started when installing a9lh

    I mean I've tried to sell an o3ds with a9lh locally and no one wants it. They worry that Nintendo may brick you... Or something

    If you ever restore your pre-arm9lh without its corresponding SD backup what would happen to your saves/data that you created while using arm9lh? Could you lose new friendlist/spotpass/streetpass data? Are cia game saves still present? Or do you essentially lose all new data regardless of sd backup?

    Why not? Having a pre-haxxed 3DS would be nice.

    A friend of mine heard of some people apparently bricking their device while setting up what I did. Like that nintendo can brick your console when you even try to do that. Like nintendo has remote access to your console and will ban it locally. I don't know how much of it is true but most bricks are due to user error and absolutely not nintendo itself.

    None of it is true. Bricks come from malformed hacking tools or user error. Generally the latter.

    It's awfully convenient how nobody that's said "a9lh wil brik ur 3ds1!11" has been able to back up their claims..
