    In OPERATIONiDROiD's Sun and Moon randomization tutorial (21:13), he claims you need to update Luma3DS to the latest hourly build for the modified game to work. I don't understand why this would be the case as hourly builds can be unstable and are meant for devs (KunoichiZ's responses,
    https://github.com/Hamcha/lumaupdate/issues/83). An explanation would be helpful.

    Not anymore, as code patching has been a feature in the stable Luma releases for quite some time now. Video guides can become extremely outdated within a matter of days, it's better to use written guides as they can be updated much easier... Not to mention, if Luma 8.0 or 8.1 works on your 3DS, you're fine...

    This is why Video guides aren't recommended, they get outdated.
