I hacked my 3ds a while back (looks like 12/22/2018) from the dates on the directories on my SD Card. As far as I can tell sighax is at 9.1-89cc6ed and says there is a 10.0.1 update. It also says Lumaupdater is at 2.3 and there is a 2.4 update available. I'm way out of the whole hacking thing and don't want to make any mistakes and brick the console. I'm going to install some new games.

Do I need to upgrade any of the cfg/hacks before installing/running new games?

If I should, is there a guide for doing that or can I just let the update programs do their thing? I see a guide called Updating B9S on 3ds.hacks.guide that does this:

What You Need
Should I be doing this update?

My Nintendo FW is 11.9.0-42U and I don't want to update it.

Thanks for your help.

If you're on 11.9 then you don't need to update B9S. You can update Luma by just downloading the latest boot.firm and copying it over the one on your SD card. There's no danger in updating your firmware, and you won't be able to play online until you do. And it will annoy you with prompts to update as well. But your choice.

So it's save to install the latest 3ds firmware?

If I do, all my games will still work?

If I do, do I have to do the B9S update as well as the luma and signax?

Sorry if I'm mistating, I've been out of this for a while.

Everything will work. All you have to do is download the latest Luma boot.firm and paste it over the one on your SD card. Then you can do an update from System Settings.

Dont fully update luma, i heard it was better to keep it at 9.1 or something.
If you do update it fully you can use NTR CFW

    If it was a option just to go to jail for month as opposed to filing taxes I might be tempted, jail ain't that bad atleast in the us.

    You just go in for a month and come out with no fines or having to pay them anyway, I would be down.

    @wolffangalchemist here, jail or even simple detention is instead a way to get debts on you by the state
    outright
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    because its not "free", its only free if you stay there but then they want you to pay up once you get released, for all the "shitty service" and abuse they gave you
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I'm not fucking kidding
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how its set up over here
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    and you'll never be able to get out of those debts unless..you commit a crime...thus making an endless cycle
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they are "smart" you see
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    they're just bastards if you ask me lol
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    some homeless people commit crimes or a lot of misdemenors to get into detention so they have some place to stay even, but of course it will never solve their finances, quite the opposite
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea....its really messed up if you ask me
