    I just had some questions about the new update for the new Nintendo 3ds xl.
    I tried to go play a game and the game needs to update buy I can't update the game because I need to update to 11.3

    So is it mandatory to update to 11.3? Is there anything new that was added?
    Or should I keep 11.2 as it is?

    Do you have A9LH? If so, make a backup of 11.2 and update to 11.3, youre safe.

    You don't NEED to make a backup but if you have a recent luma and a9lh you'll be fine

    Install luma updater through fbi and update to a nightly, for a9lh I guess just go to a github then download it and replace it with the "old" one....?

    I wouldn't tell noobs to use nightlies over stable releases considering they are buggy. More often than not it causes more problems than it solves. Noobs need to stop using the Luma updater and do it manually from the release thread until they learn how to troubleshoot an hourly when something goes wrong. You know, instead of creating a bunch of new threads.

    I didn't know it was against the rules to ask questions and post threads?

    It's not. I wasn't speaking about your thread specifically, I was saying in general it's better for newcomers to use stable releases of programs to avoid new threads of unknown bugs with hourly releases. Of course you can do what you please, but if you don't know how to troubleshoot errors it normally just leads to unnecessary threads (generally speaking) It was in response to you being suggested to use the Luma updater, when in reality you should update manually to avoid more problems in the future.

    You don't HAVE to backup, but it's best practice to create a NAND backup before doing any major changes to firmware or any other thing involving NAND.

    People will always be "an ass about", because it's annoying as fuck to have the front page shitted up with the same noob questions all day, everyday.

    (despite the language used there is no animosity levelled towards you @r3ddevil, I want to be clear about that)

    Questions about a specific homebrew app or CFW should be posted in the their official thread, not with a new post. For example this question would have been better suited to the official luma thread.

    Official threads are full of people who are very knowledgable about said homebrew/CFW, those that follow such threads are notified when someone makes a post.

    So posting in an official thread will result in your question being answered faster, and by someone more knowledgeable than if you made a new thread.

    Making a new thread can also be detrimental, as it can attract dumb fucking know-nothings such as this guy that could give you advice that actually makes things worse.

    (A genuine thank you to @Imacaredformy2ds for helping me illustrate this point so perfectly, but seriously stop it)
