    So I used rxtools 2.7 a couple of years ago to make it so I don't have to insert a cartridge into my 3ds and had all of my gamers on my microsd card. I haven't touched my 3ds in a year but with sun &mmon coming out soon I assumed I'd need to update my 3ds to play it... So my question is how do i backup my saves and move to whatever the latest/most stable cfw is , with rxtools I had to go to a website everytime which sucked.

    Use jksm but none of your saves will be lost.

    So i imported digimon world re digitized decode , I was using rxtools to play it , A9LH seems to be the way to go for stability+speed , but a reddit thread from a while ago said that it's hard to get region free on it. I looked at Luma3ds but I don't know what version any of my other stuff is. I followed this tutorial last time : https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-pasta-cfw-without-cubic-ninja-mset-4-x-old3ds.389498/
    It involved downloading the gateway firmware or something onto my DSTWO .
