    My NANDS are linked.
    1. Can i access the Eshop from the Emunand without any problem?
    2. Can i safe upgrade my 3DS via SD without screwing anything?
    (o3ds RxTools+Cboot+Themehax version 10.7 emu 9.20 sys)

    It's weird, i use themehax so i know they are linked because when i tried to change my theme using CHMM in emunand i got the custom theme in my sysnand and the Cboot stoped working.
    So i got rid of the theme and tried tinker, installed the cboot again and got rid of the custom theme on the sysnand.

    Now i tried out Tinker, it said it was "succesfull" but when i used the RxTools emunand it didn't have any theme, however the sys had the custom theme, so i'm not 100% sure if they are linked.

    1st-use luma3ds cfw, rxtools is dead
    2nd-Do a system format on sysnand without the sd, as that will unlink the nands

    So, i can't do the upgrade if they are linked right?
    And about the CFW, what does luma3ds that rxtools doesn't?

    If you update while linked you'll update your sysnand too and you'll be out if luck.
    Luma3DS over rxtools: patches everything you could want and support basically.

    i checked a bit about Luma, it does require arlh9? to be honest i'm a bit scared to change CFW.
    Is it tough to change?

    Of course it will update your system, what else would a *system* update do?

    Just make sure you have a sysnand backup so you can restore it

    This is completely false. Updating a linked emuNAND will NOT update sysNAND. The only problems with linked NANDs is the gift wrapping bug and theme conflicts.

    Yes, when you format you will completely downgrade your sysnand back to 1.0.0 FW but you can just restore a backup of it

    No, if formatting NAND could downgrade the firmware, life would have been so much easier.

    Also, unless rxtools has different rules, you can just update emuNAND via system settings. Just make sure that you are in emuNAND and make sure that you don't leave system settings without updating, lest you get kicked back to sysnand.

    Why are you lying to this man?

    To install the backup just replace the 3ds folder with the backup one right?

    Oh god. You really don't know what you're doing.

    I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm not sure where to start - there are a bunch of rules you don't know on how to do this stuff.

    Maybe you should try to at least understand how your 3ds works before attempting to just hack it.

    Even if this is true.. you giving fake/false help is rude and making things worse.
