    So I'm trying to use big bluemenu on N3DS to install 9.5 emunand update. But When I click to install the .cia it says invalid .cia. Any clues? I'm really not sure what could be wrong with it. I got it from a pretty official thread with all the updates. Got my version and got the N3DS one.

    Because I have a n3ds? If i update it will go to 10.2 and N3ds only support up to 9.5. So I have to manually update to 9.5 to use freemultipatch.

    Is there any chance I need the old devmenu.3ds in order to update to 9.5 on a N3ds? I read a tutorial saying i could use bigbluemenu but, it could have just been made with old 3ds in mind.

    Do not use BigBlueMenu

    Use Sysupdater

    Even better, read a tutorial about how to update your emuNAND and follow every step.

    oh is sysupdater a program? My bad. I'll look it up. I thought you meant sysupdater, as in, THE system updater. Like the consoles updater.

    I can see how you'd think that, good luck :-)

    The problem (as I understand it) is big blue menu will try to install every CIA (which causes problems) whereas sysupdater will only install the ones not already installed

    Actually is the other way around, BigBlueMenu can't write a cia when another one with the same name is already installed, so you end up with a partial/Frankenstein update, sysupdater will overwrite every cia, updating every app properly like the system settings does.
