    [Info]
    I'm on version "Ver 7.2.0-17U" and I'm stuck on the very first step of Plailect guide , that chart is a bit confusing. https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-1-(Decrypt9)
    I have a browser installed.
    I have made a nand backup using gateway method.

    [Questions]
    1. Would I be able to boot into Decrypt9?
    2. If I can't boot into Decrypt9, and I have to update my sysNand, How can I do it without the cartridge. I don't have any game cartridge to update to 9.2, how should I do it?
    3. I read somewhere that "-17" at the end of my 3ds's version comes into 8.0 section of the chart, is it correct?


    I was not able to ask question in hacking section of 3ds so I made a thread,
    if I'm doing something wrong, I'm sorry.

    xtheman166, thanks for your input :bow:, everything worked perfectly.

    Again Confused :unsure:
    I followed the guide and now I'm on Part 3 - link : https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-3-(arm9loaderhax)

    I'm on section
    Section IV - Restoring the System, instruction 10.

    The guide says to update the system,
    but, would I be updating SysNand or EmuNAND?

    and it says "Yes this is safe, stop asking about it."
    I would like to know, how exactly is it safe?
    Can I restore my Sysnand to "Ver 7.2.0-17U" if I update(as said in guide) to Version 11.x.x-xU(latest version)?

    Update on the situation:
    I updated the sysNand, and got to know that Plailect's guide works with only sysNand there is no more emunand etc blah blah.. and it is safe because Plailect is a trusted fella.
    Now, gotta find some .cia's :ha:
