Why would you dump your OTP? Is there anything you can do with it?
Well it's pretty useful if you want to install Arm9LoaderHax.
You can install A9LH with it.
A9LH let's you run code on boot, including custom firmwares, which allow you to do shit like signature patches, region free, etc. They also let you run programs like Hourglass9 which allows you to unbrick your 3ds by restoring a backup of the 3DS NAND (internal storage)
Install A9LH. Also the OTP can be useful for unbricking your console.
No it doesn't. It helps installing A9LH which you already mentioned. A9LH helps you boot programs which can unbrick your console.
I have installed AL9H without it... whad'ya mean...
The OTP is useful for installing A9LH. It has no other meaningful uses.
No it can be useful if you get a hardbrick.
It isn't 100% needed for unbricking with hardmod but it helps. That was why otpless was allowed
wtf is a bootrom brick
lmao, I don't think you can get a 'bootrom' brick, nor that even exists in the first place.
More commonly known as a gateway brick. (Gateway isn't the only way it happens though)
Gbatemp, the best way to talk out of your ass......
So it's a hardbrick (Sometimes, a 'brick' brick). Call it that.
That's just a regular brick....
I was going to say that wasn't the case, but I remembered, you are correct. The error is given by the bootloader because it can't read the NAND.
how do those bricks happen? not by just playing your games, right?
I'm just so used to calling it a bootrom brick for some reason.
A hardbrick won't happen from playing games lol
And the OTP doesn't unbrick shit xD
Well that could confuse people, just call it a brick or hardbrick. That's like saying "its blue so it's a bluescreen brick"
I honestly have no clue whatsoever. It rarely ever happens, but it tend to happen when you update your SysNAND within Gateway mode.
