    I got a notification on my 3DS yesterday saying that the software update 9.6.0-24U was available. But I'm running 11.2.0-35U. I took a NAND backup this morning in Hourglass9. Should I do the update, and why is it telling me to do it?
    I'm scared that if I do it, I'll brick.
    (Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I don't know where to put it.)

    Notifications can be bugged. It'll tell you don't have an update.

    It says the update is already downloaded and ready to install. Streetpass Mii Plaza says I need to update my 3DS.

    If it's all in the notification, same thing. Streetpass can be caused by missing system title.

    Sounds like you've got a frankenfirm. Did you install files at one point to use the eShop on an older firmware?

    I think I'll just let it do what it wants, then try to get back to latest. If something goes wrong, I'll restore the backup.
