    What happens when you attempt to update?

    Same thing as last time, the bar goes to like 99% then it says "an error occurred system will restart."

    As a matter of troubleshooting, I would backup your NAND, and then I would perform a CTRNAND transfer following this guide: https://3ds.guide/ctrtransfer.html

    When you're done, try updating your system.

    Thanks, i have a NAND backup. But this CTRTransfer is for 11.5 and the latest version is 11.6 so it still wouldn't solve my problem of not being able to go online.

    After you perform the CTRNAND transfer, you will be on 11.5, and then you will attempt to update to 11.6 in the system settings.

    Hey thanks! It worked! But it also wiped out all the games....i don't see them on the homescreen anymore. I do have save backups though, so i guess i'll have to reinstall them and reload the saves. It's a hassle but at least I'm on latest firmware.

    Did you follow the CTRNAND transfer guide completely?

    You need to finish the guide before you start complaining about something not working properly.

    LOL! Right, my bad! Yes! It's working now, all the games are back! Thanks so much! :)

    I do have this one weird file on the home menu though, this white box that if i click on it the screen goes black and i have to power off the 3ds. Do you know how i can get rid of it?

    Is there anything odd in your titles list in FBI? Is there anything odd in your data management settings?

    Problem solved! It was leftover data in my DSIWare, i just had to delete it! It wasn't showing in FBI or under the 3ds Datamanagement, only in DSIware

    In the end, I just installed a CTRTransfer image, and then it updated normally.

    Nevermind, I did not notice the second page of replies before I posted...

    Backup your NAND freshly, and try the update from recovery mode.
