    Hello,

    I have new 3ds xl on firmware 11.6.0-39e it is running luma3ds payload version 9.0-2a840f2. I havent updated anything since I softmoded it 2 or 3 years ago...

    first of all I cant update luma3ds. running updater gives error: fatal error failed to obtain required data code -660561850

    also when starting 3ds if I dont hold L button it starts OFW. i tried to mess around with luma boot menu but nothing changes...

    but most frustrating is that now I cant use internet browser.

    so can anyone point me to a safe guide to update CFW so this issues could be fixed, I dont care having latest luma3ds but i want to make internet browser usable again and fix this "boot with holding L button" and make it automatic to boot into CFW

    Just update luma manually to 9.1, you need it. then update OFW.

    Thank you. Already did it. Luma updater as always wasnt working and updating so had to manually update to stable version and then did the firmware update.

    Then you use an outdated updater. Install this one here
