    Hey guys, i need a little help, after months without playing with my 3DS, i got to play it again, but currently i'm using Menuhax with RXTools in 10.7. I read that updating to 11.3 in emuNAND would brick my 3DS and installing the Luma3DS will solve the problem, but i don't have idea how to do it and how it works! Any good soul to help me out? Thanks!

    follow the guide at https://3ds.guide/
    Everything there should be straightforward and you should be good to go

    Ok, i read all the steps, looks pretty straightfoward, but i still have some questions. I will need a new formatted SD card or i can use my SD card that have the RXTools with emuNAND? I'm currently using a 4GB SD card, should i buy a bigger one or it's ok to use that size? I have some more questions, but depending of the awnsers of the ones i just asked it would be fine. And sorry for being a noob, i ask everything first before doing anything because i don't wanna brick my handheld haha

    Make a NAND backup of your EmuNAND and the contents of your SD, then format your SD so you have more space. The guide will cover restoring your EmuNAND dump over your SysNAND once A9LH is installed.

    Just follow the steps that are mentioned in the guide. Backup your sysNAND, transfer that somewhere that's not the mentioned SD card, forget about the emuNAND, and proceed with the steps to prepare for A9LH installation and you'll be all set!

    You can backup your saves using JKSM.

    ^ that. Install JKSM via the provided .cia, backup all your save files somewhere and then re-inject them into your games once you re-install them :)

    You won't lose anything that's on your emuNAND, it carries over when you move your emuNAND to sysNAND.

    No. Just no. It's not called a jailbreak. :/

    I know, it's just a way to say it, that's why i put 'jailbreak' in quotes :P
