    about a year or so ago my friend (whom i am no longer friends with) helped me jailbreak(??) my 3ds. i remembered my 3ds existed last week, so i found it and charged it. i turned it on then i realized im v outdated. i'm not sure what to do and i dont want to mess up my 3ds by doing the wrong thing. i'll just list what information i know atm as i dont know what information will be useful. this was so long ago that i dont even remember 90% of the things my friend had me do. to make things worse, it was an online friend so we did it over skype, so im even more confused since i didn't really pay attention to what we were doing, i just went along with it and followed his instructions.
    information i have:
    Rei 10.5.0-30U
    ReiNAND
    menuhax
    CHMM (Custom Home Menu Manager)
    the homebrew launcher

    i think that may be it. i want to get pokemon sun or moon digitally (hopefully i can find a free version, am v broke rn ;w; ) and i can't because i have to update and i remember my friend saying something about not updating when nintendo tells me to update because it could mess something up??
    also i wanted to emulate GB/GBC/GBA games on my 3ds and do not know how to, do. anything. if anyone could recommend me any good emulators and give me/link me a tutorial on how to install it that'd be amazing

    anyway i need advice on what to do from here bc im Dumb and can't figure stuff out on my own. link me to any tutorials pls
    i'll update if i find or remember anything else.
    thanks for the help!

    (You can use freeShop to get free games, but we don't talk about that here)

    alright thanks. i'll do that in a few days. (it's 3am here, and tomorrow i have to go to 2 birthday parties)
    will i have to uninstall the already installed hacks, or can i just follow the guide without doing anything before? like will it affect anything that i already have installed hacks and i just want to update?

    There's a section for transferring what you have already once you've installed the new stuff.
