Is updating Emunand 9.2 really as simple as hitting the update button in system settings?

    So, all you do is go into Emunand, then system settings, then update? Is that really all you have to do? (just making sure)

    It is. I just did. All is good.

    (I'm O3DS 9.2Sys AND Emunand unlinked, and want to upgrade my emunand to 10.6)

    As long as your cfw is reasonably up to date, that's literally all there is to it.

    It is, just not on your sysNAND.

    It does update it to Nintendo's official firmware (but to EmuNAND partition instead of SysNAND) then the CFW patches the official firmware on EmuNAND.

    You need to format emunand if you didn't do that.
    I totally forgot that on mine. Well got still another system and a backup nand.

    so somewhere in the middle of updating, CFW patches the OFW...I'm not sure why but I'm so scared to update my 9.2 emunand...I'm afraid something bad will happen.

    The worst that could happen updating EmuNAND from System Settings (accessed from EmuNAND) is that the EmuNAND gets corrupted then all you would need to do to fix it is to create a new EmuNAND and try the update again.
