    I am still new at this and I am curious to play smash or mario kart online (already did apply a private header) so is there any tricks to update or just update directly ??

    If you're using an Old 3DS, then you can update with the System updater while you're in emunand.

    If you're using a N3DS

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If you want to update the games, just have to download CIA update files and install them on your emunand using devmenu/bbm. You only need the latest versions.

    If your emunand is up to date, you can just grab game updates right from the eshop.

    Download 3DNUS
    Put 9.5.0-23 for the title id - USA / EUR / JPN for your respective ds
    Check N3ds
    Download then place the folder onto the internal mSD
    Boot into Emunand (You do not want to update your Sysnand)
    Google: BigBlueMenu.3DS-BigBlueBox or you can get SysUpdater.cia
    Place BBM or Devmenu .3ds onto gateway mSD
    Open DevMenu or BBM
    Move to the left once on D-pad to SDMC
    Install all the cia files located in the patch folder. (L + R + A to install all)
    Restart your ds to emunand and you'll be on 9.5 emu.

    *Once everything is installed, you can delete the update folder / cias from your mSD using either BBM / DevMenu or computer*

    Yeah, but this will delete (unauthorized) DLC.

    This is the tutorial to update the 3DS system software, not a specific game.

    This is completely unrelated to the question he asked.
    If you're on o3DS, update your emuNAND through system settings and use the eShop like normal.
    If you're on n3DS, install https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-free-multi-patcher.391945/ and run it after booting Gateway/CFW and you'll be able to access eShop without updating.
    If the game is out of region, you'll have to download the CIA file of the update from *that ISO site*

    I hadn't slept yet, and didn't read or register the 'for games' part. :glare:
