As you all might know by now, Nintendo released a new firmware update this week and I am a complete noob with sx os and modding stuff on the switch.
So, I have an Erista patched switch with SX Core installed. OFW 10.1 and CFW on Emunand SX OS 3.0.4 and 10.1 and the new update is 10.2. Is there any guide where it explains step by step how to update OFW and CFW emunand safely?

Plenty of guidelines and tutorials all over internet about that.
Update OFW via settings menu through official Nintendo servers.
Update CFW offline with ChoiDujourNX.

i just did it that way:

1. saved every savegame with jksv
2. copied the content from my sd card to my pc
3. deleted emunand (the sd card will be empty after that)
4. copied boot.dat and license.dat back to the sd
5. boot OFW and update the switch firmware the normal way
6. made a new nand backup
7. createt a new emunand
8. copied everything back to the sd
9. restored my savegames with jksv

Just replace boot.dat to latest one and update FW using Daybreak or ChoidujourNX.
Both Daybreak and ChoiNX work fine on Erista.
(Daybreak only works on Atmosphere :P)
