Grab the latest SX OS Beta build from SX website, grab 8.1.0 firmware from darthsternie, (you can pick 9.0.0 or 9.0.1 if you want), update the firmware via ChoidujourNX.

It is pretty easy, if you are scared of messing up then do a NAND backup prior to update, it is as simple as it is, just don't shut off the unit while it is flashing the firmware to the system. If you want a guide on how to use ChoidujourNX, you can take a look at this below.

Yes you have to reinstall the one that doesn't work, depends on how you installed your games in the first place.
