    I have an 03DS with an emunand on 9.2 that I would like to switch over to a newer easier cfw but I'm not sure where to start. Any help would be appreciated

    They are 2 different things, one is to switch cfw without changing your entry point into cfw.
    The other, a9lh, installs cfw into your sysnand and makes booting into it quicker, among other things.

    They are two different things but you can do them after each other. First go with Luma3DS, then read the guide and see if you understand everything it asks from you. Then decide if you want to follow the guide. You don't have to do it, you can just use Luma with your Emunand and update your Emunand to the latest version.

    First do the update from RxTools to Luma3DS and if you want install A9LH.

    Are you using ctrbootmanager? Just put the Luma3ds or Reinand .DAT files in root and do the same with the .3dsx. Open the boot.cfg change the entry for rxTools into either /Reinand.3dsx or /Luma3DS.3dsx. Just boot normally and choose your entry and done. You don't need to do more.

    I dont know if I am using CTRbootmanager. I currently just boot my emunand from a website and I have all my cia's and games there. How do I check if I am?

    Ahh follow this guide then to get menuhax + ctrbootmanager going. You don't have to redo your whole emunand. With this you won't need to use the browserhax you're currently using http://hackinformer.com/2015/10/08/3ds-cfw-autoboot-homemenuhax-ctrbootmanager/

    [EDIT] Instead of using the Themehax 1.2 file, just use the menuhax 2.2 that should be in your Homebrew launcher.

    The first step requires homebrew launcher and I only have a cia installer. Sorry for being a bit clueless on the matter, I installed it quite a long time ago. How do I get the homebrew launcher?

    Hmm if you dont boot directly into hbl you can try it like this:

    Ctrbootmanager : https://gbatemp.net/threads/ctrbootmanager-3ds-boot-manager-loader-homemenuhax.398383/
    Homebrewlauncher : https://github.com/yellows8/hblauncher_loader/releases
    Menuhax 2.2 : https://github.com/yellows8/3ds_homemenuhax/releases
    Reinand : https://github.com/Reisyukaku/ReiNand/releases (don't forget to choose o3ds 4.1)

    But don't forget to change your theme in sysnand and revert back to the default before you do this. Otherwise menuhax will give a error.

    - Look up the HBL cia
    - Get menuhax 2.2 and put that in the 3ds folder.
    - Install Homebrew launcher through your cia installer
    - Launch HBL
    - launch menuhax and choose install
    - Shutdown 3ds and put the sdcard in your cardreader
    - If you have a boot.3dsx in your root change it to boot_hb.3dsx
    - put the boot.3dsx and boot.cfg from the ctrbootmanager folder in your root
    - Either choose Luma3ds or Reinand. (Go with reinand to try it out. It works the same with luma3ds)
    - Put rei, armloader9hax.bin and ReiNand.dat in your root
    - Put the Reinand.3dsx file in your root
    - Open Boot.cfg and just go to the right till you see the Reinand or rxTools title with the path next to it. Change the title to Reinand and the path to /ReiNand.3dsx
    - Put your SD card back into the 3ds
    - turn the power on while you hold the L trigger till the bootmanager shows up. Just select Reinand and it should boot you into reinand.
