    honestly the whole cfw experience is . . . well an experience you will not understand it all before fou install it (most people get an accomplished feeling when cfw installation is complete because of just how much they learned/completed along the way)

    with that said you will not need to update sysnand for this (you play games from emunend and you will likely want to update emunand for game comparability anyway)

    edit: the point of updating sysnand is to boot cfw with only the initial press of the power button

    Actually, I've tried to install this before, and yes, I know that accomplished feeling, especially because of the fact that I'm not really familiar with computer or programming stuff. :)
    But the outcome seems to be a problem, that I decided to redo the installation.

    Speaking of emuNAND, when I first successfully booted the emuNAND from RXMODE, I checked the System Settings for version. It said "RX-E 6.0.0-12U". But when I went back to the Home Menu, and checked the version again, it said "Version 6.0.0-12U"; which means I'm in sysNAND. At this point, I thought that I might messed up the installation process, and decided to reinstall and ask around.

    It would be great to know what are your thoughts on my previous installation attempt.

    Well I'll give this another try. Thanks for the quick response!

    thats normal because of the needed permissions system settings has it does not run in sysnand or emunand but 3ds service mode and when you exit settings it puts you back in sysnand so you did in fact properly install cfw the first time

    There is no "service mode" and it runs in sysNAND/emuNAND. But it's designed to restart the 3DS in order to apply the settings, which means it goes back to sysNAND.

    Well technically it runs in elevated privilege mode or something so that it can have the rights to change certain things. But then it has to restart the 3DS when you exit and basically that doesn't really change anything, just semantics.

    Successfully exported the main file, edited it, and imported it back to see the changes in game!

    Oh and one more thing. If I were to update the sysNAND to 6.1 (via cartridge "nag") in order to launch X/Y game, will I still be able to boot rxTools and use the savedatafiler?

    this is the bad way to do it game card updates are often incomplete and contain stub files
    you want update? do it like this
    taken from this guide [Tutorial] Installing rxTools Custom Firmware - (Old 3DS and 2DS)

    Gonna try that but the brick warning got me thinking :unsure:

    Thanks for the advice! But I'll stick with 6.0 for the moment.

    it is safe if as @vb_encryption_vb said you follow all the instructions properly
    . . . i don't want to sound rude but if you cook your own food there is a chance you can kill yourself or others with your kitchen knife . . . but as long as your careful and take your time all will be good especially your meal . . . am i making sense here
