    I've been out of the cfw community for a while because I had updated my system to whatever firmware it was at the time and my 3ds would boot black. The button configurations worked but i didnt have the time due to school. Today I just played around trying to get it to work and I did the following in order.
    First I used emunand9 to format sd (EmuNAND default). Then I cloned sysnand to emunand. Then I used hourglass9 to restore emunand from my emunand_original.bin and then i restored sysnand using emunand_formatted.bin. Now it boots back into what i believe is the cfw i had before (arm9 + Luma) as FBI is there and i can install cias. The system settings says its on 11.0.something-U.
    My question is how to install B9S because i tried using the guide to update from Arm9 to B9S but my start button boots into hourglass9 and not the safeb9installer. Whats the best way to approach this. I am open to doing a fresh install but idk how. My backup sysnand.bin is on 9.2.

    The best way to approach this is to delete all the old payloads expect SafeB9SInstaller. You won't need them as they won't work with B9S
    From there, just follow the Guide as normal

    Thanks, I went through the guide and ended with using the luma updater to update to 8.1. Will it be safe to update this NAND when new updates release and can you take a look at this screenshot of my sd and tell me which files I can delete? Sorry for my lack of expertise. http://imgur.com/a/7OvLm

    Thanks so much for your help. So will it be fine for me to update the booted firmware to the latest?

    It's perfectly fine to update to 11.5. I've been testing it since the update was launched and can't seem to find any ill effected caused by the update.

    Create a folder in the luma folder named "payloads"
    From there just copy your .firm payloads into that folder, you no longer need to rename them. To boot into a payload, just hold "start" while booting the system. If you only have one payload, it will boot that one by default, if you have more than one, it will show a menu to pick your payloads.
