    So I wasn't on gbatemp for a while and I wanted to know what is that A9LH thingy is all about. Right now I'm on a N3DSXL with 9.2 sysnand and 10.6 emunand.

    It's the newest loader that loads arm9 as soon as you boot resulting in faster boot times and possible nand restores in the future

    Faster boot times.
    Impossible to brick (although setup can be risky)
    100% boot (no more yellow screen)
    Never lose CFW by updating on accident.
    Must have SD card in 3DS at all times. Make backups in case of corruption.

    Can you explain what are the actual risks?

    Set aside at least a full day where you can't get interrupted. I took a day and a half. My house got really clean because of all the times you have to wait!

    It took me about 4 hours too, the process is slow as hell but its completely worth if you don't have a hardmod and want to mess with the nand all the time like i do XD

    Iirc, there was a payload by ihaveamac that removed the debug reports (colors) for a faster boot time.

    SO, I finally managed to make it through the process of setting a A9LH SysNAND and I must say that I'm REALLY satisfied! BIG thanks to everyone who helped me make it through the process! :):bow::grog:
    My advice to everyone who attempts to do this: make a backup each time you make any big changes to your NAND because it really saved from starting the whole process from scratch.
