    It will backup the registers of the games being installed, to have a full backup you need to backup your SD card too

    Dude - inject EmuNAND to SysNAND after A9LH - why would you keep using EmuNAND?

    ok, it will keep the registry but after restore the nand i'll have to install all the games again?
    Well, because i think that updating the emunand is more safe, or i'm i wrong? if i update the emunand, the all i can loose is the emunand, if i update the sysnand i could lost all the hack (in the future). My idea of emunand is having a backup of the original nand and do all i want on that backup.

    a9lh + Luma3DS has update protection

    Also. If you also restore your sd you wont have to reinstall the games

    ok, so, after your help let me see the process...

    1 - Make a emunand backup and a sd backup (how? only copy the folders to computer ou using some aplication?)
    2 - Delete all the files from SD card for a fresh and clean instalation
    3 - use the guide (https://3ds.guide/)
    4 - Inject emunand on sysnand (how?)
    5 - i'll dont need xorpads for nothing?

    Thanks you all for the help

    1)Use emunand9 or Decrypt9 to get a NAND backup, also save files from your SD
    4)The guide will tell you
    5)No

    I thought there was just CFW. I didn't realise there were different CFWs!

    Do some run some programs and others are required for others? Do some offer more functionality than others?

    Why isnt there just one that is the best and does everything?

    Huh.... Read the original thread.... it's exactly about that.

    Of course there isn't a single CFW. Different people have different views on what to do and how to do it.

    That's all explained in the main post. And the point of this thread isn't to say which CFW is the best, but to allow the user to understand and decide which CFW is best for them.

    Is it my wording? Is there something I can improve to make this more approachable?

    There's no objective "best CFW" among the current ones. They have different intended userbases as explained by the original post. Corbenik, for example, is meant for powerusers and developers, while Luma3DS is the most used one and meant to be easy to set up and use by anyone.

    No, i reckon your post is fine! I wasn't criticising it, i was just lamenting the state of reality. Nevermind, it's cool :) I'll just use Luma :)

    Why lamenting, though? You make it sound as if having options is a bad thing.
