    Basically,what the title says,can you update gateway to the latest firmware (for emunand) while beiing on 9.2 on sysNAND ?

    Does updating deletes previously installed cias ? I'm doing this so I can play games online,so if there's another solution,please say it to me.

    Sorry for bad english,thanks in advance :)

    Is it guranteed that there won't be anything broken in sysNAND? I've heard that this FW has fixed many entry points (even cubic ninja or misheard stuff? i don't really know)I'm just worried to do stuff before ensuring they're safe :P

    This is a pretty fair question. Yes, Nintendo fucked up a lot of homebrew, but with emuNAND it doesn't make a difference.

    Just try to update it properly:
    0 - Make a backup of your NAND dump.
    1 - Make sure that you actually have a emunand.
    2 - Launch GW, enter system options.
    3 - If it says GW3DS X.XX instead of Ver. X.XX then you're good to go directly to system update.
    Don't exit System Options, don't update using eShop.

    Yeah,but what do you mean ?
    If I didn't have emunand would it still have GW instead of Ver ? that's a kind of a detail that would've ost a lot :P

    Edit:I probably have emuNAND since the version of sysNAND difers from the version it shows when I open the GW mode

    Yeah, you actually have emuNAND, just make sure that you're in the GW emunand mode when performing the update.
