Hi. I bought a 3ds with arm9loaderhax and it asks me to update the system it's 10.7 right now. How do I know it has luma3ds also how do I update those apps. Are the updates even essentially because all games are working right now. Thx.

So you mean I press select and hold it and then press the power button while holding it? And if it doesn't have Luma it will just boot into cfw as normal? So I can't update my cfw then?

I habe checked it and I have AuReiNand. What about that!
Yeah... you'll want to update to the newest version of Luma3ds, I don't know if old AuRei has firm protection. No firm protection = dead a9lh on update.

You'll want to back up your whole SD card in case anything gets messed up. After that you'll go (https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases).
Download the version 5.5(non dev) and drag and drop everything to the SD. Then, boot up your system and hold select to make sure it says Luma and version.
I don't think you'll make much use of these, so feel free to forgo them, but there are programs assigned to some buttons for back ups and what not, those will need to be updated too.

Entire SD card backup.. to change CFW? It's literally one folder to exchange, that are a few MBs at the absolute most.. Nothing can evenn get messed up that can't be fixed by placing the files properly :P

They obviously don't into custom firmware, I was just trying to make sure they had something to go back to if anything crapped out. Plus it's always smart to make a back up before messing with stuff you don't quite understand. I will agree with you though, not much to mess up.

If you have the new 3ds or new 3ds xl, you can set up micro sd data management. If you have the older 3ds, take the sd card out. Much easier than setting up FileZilla for something that's so simple.

"Setting up FileZilla"
Literally entering ftp://192.168.*.***:5000 and hitting enter is setting up since when?

Or if you have CFW you can find a version of MircoSD Management that works on o3ds, but you have to search for it on That ISO Site to find it.
