    I was out of the whole 3DS scene for about 8 months or so now.

    Can anyone tell me if theres been any more advancements to the Scene? I heard that people moved from RXTools to something new? Also is NDS Games possible to be installed yet?

    You can see my current system below (The version of the CFW is outdated but my OFW is still that 9.2 one)

    Oh yeah, you missed a lot. We now have Arm9loaderhax, which completely gets rid of the use of emunand and boots much faster. The new CFW is Luma3DS.

    There is a work in progress port of Desmume, it's still very early though and not very compatable, but I'd keep my eye on it.

    Luma3DS just boots cfw with patches and already supports A9LH natively. A9LH is just an entry point to get access to cfw early in boot. It can load Decrypt9 and other Arm9 apps early in boot, too.

    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki follow this guide and dont skip anything or you'll risk a brick. my first try was a brick but since then the tools/guide has been upgraded are much safer and easier to follow.
    edit: next 3 went smoothly

    Oh btw how do I install Luma? Do I needa follow the Upgrade steps or the Installation steps? Do I need to fully reformat my SD card and get rid of EmuNAND?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Bit confused now - Should I install Arm9 first then Luma?

    Just follow the installation first. You don't need to remove EmuNAND as it can boot into that for the A9LH install.

    behind a parental advisory sticker
    luma is a reinand mod
    and a9lh the most superior entry point we have
    but that 100% thing they through at you is bullshit you can not recover from nativefirm0 or nativefirm1 bricks . . . but luma is supposed to keep your system from touching those titles when updating
