    My friend ended up buying a copy of Pokemon Moon for his O3DS, and he has CakesFW Emunand, and when he tried playing it, it just reset the 3DS and brought him back to the home screen (in emunand). I've tried helping him but because he's not with me at the moment I'm having a hard time diagnosing. But here are the known things:
    - Tried opening the game multiple times with the same result
    - He updated the emunand using the Moon cartridge (but still ended up with the latest firmware)
    - Can access eShop, and all the other services
    Can you guys give suggestions/ know why the 3DS is bugging out? Any and all help is appreciated thanks :)

    He should try using Luma, Cakes isn't really in development anymore and probably has issues handling extended memory games like SuMo on the O3DS

    I have CakesFW on my N3DS, and it works perfectly fine. I'll have a look at Luma though thanks :)

    Well the difference is that you have a New 3DS ;) The extended memory that Sun and Moon need just affects the O3DS, which has to boot into a different mode when you launch that kind of games (which is also the reason why SuMo don't work with NTR on the O3DS)

    CakesFW doesn't work with High Mem mode. It will work fine on new3ds because sun/moon doesn't boot high mem mode. On the old 3ds it does.

    Oh ok. Is it possible to move the data from the CakesFW to Luma? The only Emunands I've ever tried installing are Cakes and Gateway.

    The emuNAND will just be "carried over", all CFWs are compatible with each other in that regard. Basically, just remove everything cakes related from the SD card and put the luma files on there
