    I've been reading and trying to figure out how i can update my 2DS to 9.0 a long time now..
    I'm currently at Version 6.0.
    I've been following this guide and almost at the bottom of the guide, @samiam144 writes how we can update to either 9.0-9.2
    But the step i can't figure out is the at the Requirements, where he writes, and i quote: "FBI installed in sysnand (Step 4a if you don't have Gateway or Ninjhax) OR any other cia installer on Sysnand".

    I do know that i have installed FBI in emuNAND, and i have followed Step 4a and i choosed "keep" as suggested: "When it's done, it will ask what you want to do with the source. Select "keep" if you want to install FBI to sysnand later."

    But how do install FBI in sysnand so i can proceed and update the 2DS from 6.0 to 9.0?:(

    Do step 4a again, but select sysnand whenever it gives you the choice :)

    Do you mean that i should choose sysnand at 2. and 7.? :)
    And how do i know that it worked after i'm done? I don't want to mess up my 2DS because of a small error:P

    I followed the steps, and it worked the fine the first time i opened both FBI and h&s app.. but when i opened "system settings", to see if i'm inside emunand or sysnand it said RX-E even though i choosed to inject the FBI to sysnand and also when i choosed to boot it in sysNAND.. RXMODE -> SYSNAND.,
    and when i closed "system setting" and tried to boot up FBI i get this message: http://i.imgur.com/kHFbTG7.jpg
    And when i open the h&s app i get this message: http://i.imgur.com/yHFU4Tj.jpg

    Is it right? Or am i screwed? :(

    EDIT: I tried to restart the console, and the FBI app was gone, and the h&s was still broken... But as soon as i launched rxTools and choosed to boot it with sysnand, both h&s and FBI worked. But in system setting is says RX-S Instead of RX-E...
    Is this right? Or am i still screwed?

    It put you back in regular system menu without any signature patches when you exited system settings which prevents FBI in your H&S app from running.

    What Pingouin7 said is true.

    RX-S means you are in sysNAND, so that means everything went smoothly. When you follow the guide to update make doubly sure that you perform step #13 (boot in Dev Mode) as if you boot rxMode in sysNAND instead of Dev Mode when you run SysUpdater it WILL brick. That's the only reason people brick their 3DSes trying to update them. So as long as you follow the guide exactly, you'll be fine.
    In the newest nightlies, Dev Mode is renamed Pasta Mode, don't let that confuse you as it's still the same thing.

    You booted rxMode sysnand, do not update in rxMode.
    Update only in devmode/pasta mode as mentioned above.

    Yeah.
    You should start with the 3DS powered off ;) The guide tells you what to do.

    I'm not sure what you mean. You launch it in Dev Mode as mentioned, it's the same thing as rxMode sysNAND except without some patches. You don't launch rxTools from within rxMode if that's what you mean.

    . . .devmode and don't open the settings app to look and see just trust the fact that you selected devmode

    Yes i know that i have to choose devmode, but before i launch rxTools and choose Devmode, should i be booted in sysnand or in RX-S Sysnand??
    I'm not being rude, please forgive if it sounds like that, I'm very thankful for all the help, i just dont want to brick my 2DS for a "simple" mistake:sad::sad:

    omg it worked! Thank you!!!!!! :D:grog::grog::yaynds:
    But should i be worried that the h&s doesn't work at the FW boot and that i have sysupdater and FBI in the menu?

    EDIT: i take that back about h&s, after i restarted the console, it disappeared :/
    Is that normal?
