    I tried downloading the .cia install pack from that one iso site so that I could install all of them onto my New 3DS' emunand in order to get amiibo functionality. However, when it try to install through bigbluemenu/Title Manger I get an error saying this cia is invalid. Does anyone know why this occurs? Is there another way to get my emunand to this specific firmware? I tried 3DNUS, but that wasn't giving me any results, nothing would download. I'm at a loss at this point. Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for the info, but I genuinely think there is a big error in your how to there: Step 6 states to Hit A to do this update to the emunand. However the screen reads to push HOME to run the .cia version. I believe that is the version I probably was supposed to do because I hit A and it seemingly worked, however when I restarted the emunand, after it says the home menu is loading or whatever, nothing loads. And I believe this is because the emunand probably tried to update to the latest firmware instead of the specific firmware I was trying to dictate to it with the .cia files in the updates folder. If I'm wrong please correct me, though I don't know what else could have caused the emunand to brick like that as I followed everything as directed.

    Fortunately, not a big deal, I'm just starting the process over. 2nd time should do it. Thanks for the info, I wouldn't have figured out I needed that sysUpdater file if you hadn't told me about it.

    I've done this about 4 times and i've always hit A to update ,I did have you Backup your Emunand so just try again.

    Ok, then what is the Home Button instruction about then? I'm just curious, I believe you're probably right that I just need to hit A, but I'm curious then what the instructions about the Home Button are about. I'd like to get it right this second time, I'd gladly try it now, but my EmuNand is rather large (over 60GB), so it takes about an hour to transfer all the content back onto the microsd card.

    Why did you format? all you had to do was reinject the partition using emunand tool? and I have no idea why sysUpdater mentions the home button.

    Well I didn't make the emunand backup because I had confidence I'd make it right the first time, and even if I didn't I knew it wouldn't be impossible to get back to where I was. I mean I'm just passively doing this while doing other things as well, its not a huge deal. Though I will backup the emunand this time before trying again. I just assumed that the emunand tool backup thing would take just as long.

    You do realise draging all your files back wont fix Emunand right? Emunand is in a hidden partition that cannot be accessed on your SD card.

    The Emunand partition on a new 3ds is only 2.1gb sometimes less

    Yes, I'm finishing formatting emunand via the the Gateway menu right now, in fact it just popped up with the done message. I'm foolish, but I'm not an idiot.
