    I haven't touched the device in quite a while (obviously), nor have I been following the scene. It seems now that nobody is hosting the url I need to boot RXTools.

    The Luma guide says "If you have already hacked your 3DS before and have an EmuNAND based CFW setup, just follow all instructions while on SysNAND. Your data will be transfered from EmuNAND to your new A9LH install at the end.", but I don't know how I can get RXTools open without that URL being hosted anywhere, which means I can't get into SysNAND.

    I'm sure this has been posted elsewhere, but I'm so out of the loop I don't even know how to find it...! Sorry to be a pain, but if somebody could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. You guys have always been the best!

    EDIT: Sorry, it's an O3DS XL running 9.2.0-20u, not sure what the emunand is running since I'm locked out. I think it was probably 11.2, I think I booted it up just to update when I heard about it.

    If that is the case just follow the guide from the beginning, is the emunand precious?

    Do you have menuhax? You said the url doesn't work, which sounds like you're not using menuhax, but then you say you can't boot into sysNAND - so I'll assume you have menuhax.
    Try booting without the SD card in. If that doesn't work, swap the boot.3dsx with the one for the plain homebrew launcher. Then press Start for reboot options then pick the one that says don't reboot. This will let you into sysNAND.

    No, it isn't - So I'll be cool to just pretend like it's never had CFW? Oh shit, now that I re-read that quote again, it just says to follow the guide in sysNand. Gosh, I'm an idiot.

    No, I had browserhax and nothing else. I can boot to sysNand, I just can't boot to emuNand. I actually did find an rxtools URL that is still up and running, but for some reason, it will load Gateway but it won't run rxTools. I get an error suggesting I restart the 3DS and try again.

    But it sounds like I can just pretend like none of this ever happened and start over with a new CFW/entrypoint, right? I guess I don't see why not, since any changes I made are all on the SD card anyways... I really could have figured that out myself, I feel ashamed for starting a new post about it. Thanks guys.

    You will dump your emunand during the guide and then restore it on to your sysnand when you get a9lh. You do not need to open your emunand during any part of the guide so you should at the end have your emunand on sysnand and be able to acess it again. Here's the guide
