    before you call me out on it, yes, im a hardcore noob. I have Luma CFW with sysNAND 9.2 and emuNAND 9.2 o3ds, i want to update my emunand, but i dont know how to. I looked through google, but couldn't get a straight answer. I guessing you do it through the system setting?

    Yes, through the system settings in emunand. but if you leave system settings you'll be sent back to sysnand.

    i recommend switching to a9lh. it's safer and better

    Make sure nands are unlinked then update emunand through system settings.
    Also you should update to A9LH.

    If your nands are linked then sysnand will update as well as emunand. Meaning you can't use custom firmware anymore.

    What do you mean by an error? What happens?

    And I really don't want to be one of those people, but I'd really recommend installing A9LH to make CFW a lot more simpler and easier to use. And you can save space on your sd card with no emunand.

    You misread the post. I said your sysnand will update with your emunand if NANDs are linked.

    If you non a9lhed sysnand updates you can't use custom firmware. If you have a9lh then your sysnand can update fine. He doesn't have a9lh.

    It is true that if your Emunand and sysnand are linked and you try to update your Emunand, your sysnand will get updated too.

    Nope, the only thing that is linked are SD files. Updating a linked EmuNAND is perfectly safe.
