    Is there a way to actually disable updates on sysnand? I don't want any way of accidentally updating.

    You may already know this, but you can use the TubeHax DNS (107.211.140.065) to block updates. It'll block eShop services too. I haven't heard of any other way.

    This don't work, if you enable wifi in emunand it get's activated in sysnand and vice versa. If there are free connections (there are 3 aviable) in sysnand and you save a new connection in emunand, it is saved in sysnand too.
    I saved my 2 connections on emunand, there were there in sysnand afterwards. I just created a third dummy connection on sysnand and set the DNS on all of them to the tubehax DNS.

    you can also just create 3 dummy connections on sysnand and they shouldnt be in emunand if i am correct

    I think that would also work, but for extra safety you can put the tubehax DNS on those anyway :D even if it's pretty useless

    This is only true in o3ds where wifi on/off is a physical toggle. Also the wifi entries shouldnt bw synced between sysnand and emunand. If they are, your nands are linked and you need to unlink them.

    My nands aren't linked, it's happening nevertheless. Also, it is also true for n3ds. I've tested all that stuff first hand.

    True, even dummy connections might get overwritten in a few rare occasions like when leaving Wi-Fi data transfer. Afaik there isn't 100% safe options to block them, better solution is getting a9lh and a NAND dump in a safe place, so you can restore if anything goes wrong.
