    Is it possible to accidentally upgrade your 9.2.0-20U system with a game? I have several games that I downloaded and put on to my Sky3DS before I downgraded. Should I be scared to play them? I know a certain version of SSB won't work without 9.5 emunand, but could any of my .3DS versions of my games upgrade me without my acknowledgement?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    No. Cartridge games with higher firmwares will always prompt you to install first, unless they have been trimmed. Besides, you should be running them in EmuNAND anyway, which should solve said issue.

    I've said it once before and I'll say it again. There is no way to accidentally update your system. Ever. Even if it downloads in sleep mode, you get a nag, but it will not update.

    The consoles will NEVER update without your permission.

    You may be new, but this is for everyone who reads this thread.
