    Greetings,

    I already did the research, so I know how to update my emuNAND. I just download the correct update cia files, install sysupdater into my emuNAND, run sysupdater, and I should be set, right?

    I just followed a tutorial on installing rxtools from scratch, so you may already guess my question. I am very new to the CFW scene, and installed rxTools, downloaded and installed my first cia game, etc. but am still on a 9.2 emuNAND.

    Since I looked up how to perform an update, and got the result of using sysupdater, when I went to the sysupdater download areas, there was a warning on every version to not use on any firmware spoofed nand such as rxmode, so my question:
    Is it safe to use any of the sysupdater cias and install them into my emuNAND via rxtools, then run it and update? If not, what is the correct thing to do? Links?

    Also, thank you greatly in advance for any help, I know it's a noobish question.

    It's safe to run sysUpdater in emunand. The only thing you shouldn't do is to upgrade/downgrade sysnand in GW/rxTools (anything with firm spoofed).

    yeah it's safe to update with it in emunand, that warning is pretty confusing

    i went to 9.5 earlier today with it

    Perfect, so the trick is to just not use rxtools? What is the best and easiest option for updating then, as all I have currently is rxtools. I know after reading a bit that not all CFW can read or enter the emunand, so I don't want to update my sysNAND on accident by using the wrong CFW then installing and running sysUpdater.
