    I have a N3DS with A9LH and Luma installed. I am unable to update to 11.1 for some reason. I have been reading other threads and am trying to download from 3DNUS. In that program, I was told to enter "11.0.0-33U" for title id, then tick new 3ds and pack as cia. In the program log, it says download complete over and over, but progress bar doesn't fill up. I am not sure what I am doing wrong... Thoughts and help appreciated :)

    Is there any real reason to update to 11.1?

    Are you using the Tubehax DNS? Are you close enough to your internet spot? Do you have a custom HOME Menu? That's all I can think of.

    Clean your Internet Configurations and try again. Works for me.

    have you ever modified home menu in anyway, including changing fonts? If true you have to re-install the unmodified home menu. For 3dnus, set title as 11.1.0-34 and region as USA.

    I wasn't able to update because I had that Flipnote Hatena proxy set up. The Tubehax DNS is also down, from what I hear. So just a heads up, resetting your internet settings might work like it did for me even if you don't know what the problem is. (And as wsquan said, I've heard from multiple people custom home menus may also stop updates.)

    My N3DS says "sys" and then version string in normal boot in system settings. In Gateway Mode, it says "ver" then version string... Is this normal? Also in Gateway select game menu, it says sysnand... I am lost

    I am unable to update to 11.1. Not sure how to proceed now. I really don't want to miss out on newer games such as Pokemon Sun/Moon...

    As other have asked, do you use Tubehax DNS? Remember to disable it because this blocks updates.

    Try putting your 3DS in Sleep Mode and letting SpotPass download the update since you have the tubehax DNS off.

    Can't you activate that firmware spoof in Luma or whatever? Wouldn't that make games work regardless of the version installed?

    Yeah, the new Pokemon games will probably work without actually updating to 11.1

    I have been working on this for a while now, and read on another thread that my home menu needs to be fixed. I tried using 3DNUS to download "0004003000008F02.cia". I tried installing that through FBI and am getting this error message:

    Failed to install CIA file.
    Result code: 0xC8E083FC
    Level: Status (25)
    Summary: Invalid argument (7)
    Module: AM (32)
    Desc: Already exists (1020)

    Is there a way to remove the current one and install the one I downloaded through 3DNUS? I am worried about system bricking though... Thoughts and help appreciated :)
