I don't know anything about hacking or homebrewing. I just got this 3ds from someone that received it the same way I did.

It had pokemon omega ruby, and I tried to access to the online and wonder trades. And it works fine.

So, a friend game me her game of Pokémon moon to play. But when I tried to get into the online, it said the game needed an update. And when I tried to update the game, the eshop tells me the console needs an update first.

My question is, will the games be unplayable if I update the console? Will I still be able to access the online of the games installed in here?

I have 11.9.0-42U if that helps.

Check if it has cfw on it if it doesent that's fine and no updating it will not prevent the games from not working and u can cfw on latest fw
