How do you know when you're running a RedNAND or SysNAND?

    Hi guys I just got back to 3DS gaming and i forgot pretty much everything about it.

    It has been fully hacked and I installed Luma3DS. I remember installing RedNAND.
    When I boot, I'm not sure if it's the sysNAND or RedNAND.

    All I did was update Luma3DS to 6.6 with the updater, but the system version still says 11.0.
    How do I know if I'm running RedNAND?
    How can I update my system version to 11.2?

    Hold Select when booting Luma to access its options and select "Show NAND or user string in System Settings". It will show "Sys 11.0.0" as the version if it is SysNAND or "Emu 11.0.0" if it is EmuNAND/RedNAND.

    Alternatively, if "Autoboot SysNAND" is selected in Luma's settings and you aren't holding down L/R when booting, you are on SysNAND.

    Mine says "Ver. 11.0.0-33U".
    I guess it's SysNAND?

    I tried using EmuNAND 1, 2, 3 and 4 options and but it keeps booting to RedNAND.
    I'm not sure why it suddenly stopped booting it to it.

    You were likely using emunand via menuhax. For that you need sysnand to be on 9.2 - your sysnand must have been updated to 11.0 at some point removing your menuhax + ability to boot to your emunand

    Edit. do you have a9lh installed or just trying with the above via hbl?

    I have a9lh installed. Does this mean I'm running EmuNAND?

    Between insane and insecure
    Do you have it set to auto-boot to sysNAND? And also do you have it set to version in System Settings?

    You don't have "Show NAND or user string in System Settings" enabled in the luma settings. Enable it and check again.

    Your emunand is housed on it's own partition on the sdcard. As long as you haven't full formatted the sdcard it should still be there. If you use an app like MiniTool/EaseUS you'll see the unformatted partition.

    If you are running a9lh&luma updating sysnand itself wouldn't be an issue

    I was under an impression that I was using RedNAND, but after enabling the user string, it says "Sys".
    I know for a fact that I followed a guide on a github wiki to install everything perfectly.

    When I use the Hourglass, it updates fine, but says "EmuNAND is not ready" for some reason.

    Depends on what guide you followed but you likely made an emunand, used it, then removed it.

    Just update your system normally via System settings
