    Hi guys so im following this right now https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/9.2.0-Update to upgrade my 4.4 fw to 9.20 but I am confused about one aspect. For the steps requiring an SD card is it ok if I use my microsd Adapter with an 8gb micro sd card as well as should this microsd card be empty and fat 32 before beginning the update (i.e. what should i have on this sd card and what format should it be before i start the guide)?

    Thanks :)

    EDIT:

    I used the formatter from the guide and set the allocation unit size to 32768 is this correct?

    OK so now I am ultra confused. First off the one SD that came with my 3DS has a huge NAND.BIN file on it and im not sure if i use that 2gb card to update my 3ds to 9.2.0 also im not sure why but its format is FAT not fat32. I also have a "nintendo 3ds" folder on my SD card as soon as i put it back into my 3DS (the sd card i wanted to do the update with originally). Guys I really wanna make sure im doing this right to not brick it any replies would be greatly appreciated thanks

    Which sd card should I be using? The one with the NAND.bin file or a new sd card formatted to FAT 32?

    Sure as long as the MicroSD adapter is reliable, they tend to become dodgy after being used for a while. Doesn't matter what you have on it.
    Don't rush, take your time with the guide and you'll be fine. Rushing is a great way to brick.
    Just follow the guide properly and don't skip any steps and you'll be fine.

    Don't do anything the guide doesn't tell you to and you'll be fine. If it tells you to eject the SD, put it in your PC, and do whatever, then reinsert it into your 3DS, you should do that.

    so Im updating my 3ds to 9.2.0 right now from 4.xx fw and its on the final step installing the cia's what sd card should i use for the next parts of the guide? Should I use this same sd card with all its files or do i need to re-format this sd card to use it or should i use a brand new sd card?
