    Hello,

    I am incredibly nervous about starting this adventure. I have all then time in the world so I thought, why not give it a try. My current setup is a USA 2DS running 6.0 with rxtools with 10.7 EmuNand. I want to just start over from scratch. I really don't want to start in the middle of any tutorials. I should just be able to format my SD card and be good to go correct? Obviously, I will make a backup first just in case. Any other pointers that I should have or anything that I should be aware of? Thanks in advance!

    I know you've said you didn't want to start in the middle of tutorials, but your best bet is to do exactly that: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-4-(Getting-the-OTP)

    This is assuming you already have an EmuNand (which is pretty much the same as RedNand, except a bit less optimal to use) and have FBI injected to your EmuNAND. The first 3 parts are all about getting to 9.2 and setting up a CFW, but you already did that.

    My sysnand is on 6.0 so I still need to update to 9.2. I don't mind losing everything from my EmuNand. I don't have much on there. I'll backup some saves and that's about it.

    I would recommend starting the guide at part 4. Instructions are included for people coming from prior hax. This is especially handy if you dont want to lose any games/saves you had previously on Emunand.

    Granted you may be able to do it your way.. Im not sure how 2DS firmwares work. I also just find the guide generally knows whats best and how to do it. I trust it more than myself.. as should most users.

    Then what you should do is follow this section of the guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/9.2.0-Update

    After you've finished that section, you should:
    - Use browserhax to install menuhax
    - Ensure that you have FBI on your EmuNAND
    - Follow the guide from part 4: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-4-(Getting-the-OTP)

    Let me know if you need help with any of that!

    OK cool. So there really isn't any point in deleting my EmuNand then. I'm going to start the updating process and see what happens!

    Yeah, except once you get to part 4, anything it tells you to do, including backing up your SysNand/EmuNand/SD card, are completely necessary. Don't skip any steps once you're on part 4.

    Read. Reread. Do not question or skip anything. Cross your fingers alot. Eventual success. Let us know if you have any issues getting to that last step.. and dont be afraid to ask BEFORE doing something permanent or scary.

    Absolutely. Thank you. I'll let you know if I run into any issues or have any questions if you're alright with that. Also I just noticed that I typed A9HL at the top :D lol

    All files have been downloaded! Here we go!

    Question: It says to backup my "Rednand". I assume for me, that would be my Emunand correct? @CrispyYoshi @nickwhit

    Use ReiNand instead of AuReiNand/Luma/Whatever they change it to.

    It is more minimalist and more focussed on making the features work, it also does not have "LOL bugfix" comment every two minutes.

    :DTake your time, don't rush, read again if you are not sure and ask anything you are unsure about and everything will be great at the end.

    Is there a trick to get hombrew launcher to work? Every time i do it, it freezes at a red screen. I deleted my cookies and history, go to my bookmark, open it, touch the slider bar at the far right side, I get crazy colors that eventually lead to a blue screen, then the red screen appears and nothing.

    Crashing at the red screen? Did you download starter.zip from https://smealum.github.io/3ds/ and copy /3ds/ and boot.3dsx to your root? (I thought you already had it, but apparently not... I should have mentioned that, sorry!

    EDIT: By the way, when you tagged me in the edited post earlier, I wasn't notified! I thought I should let you know.
