    The way I have my 3DS setup right now is:

    O3DS XL SysNAND: 9.2 EmuNAND: RXMode 10.7
    MenuHax by pressing L at boot
    Then go to RXTools to get to Emunand to play my 3DS Cia games
    Or RXTools to get into Sysnand to use my R4Gold 2016 for DS games

    This all seems a little broken to me and I've seen that AuReiNand with A9LHseems to be the way to go but I'm not exactly sure how to go about this. I want to still be able to get games from "that ISO site" and I want to transfer my current save games over too. If I have to start from scratch that's mostly OK. I just want to keep my saves. Any ideas? Does this make sense?

    Just follow https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki to the letter and you'll be fine, you won't lose anything. To be extra sure, take a sysNAND and emuNAND backup before you begin.

    I can say from my own personal experience that this is very much true, I'd also say that ARM9loaderhax + AuReiNAND is the most reliable and secure CFW set-up you could ever have on a 3DS of any make/model.

    Does anyone recommend using tiny format to format my sysnand?

    With the sysNAND you can just take out the SDcard before formatting.

    It's not dumb, I once pondered the same exact thing.
