    I have a 2DSXL which I bought that has already been modified. Its on 11.6, but Im looking to update it to 11.8 (which I think is the latest FW) can I update it to the latest FW and still keep the modifications? If so how would I go about it please?

    Thanks - Supernoob!

    thanks i needed to see what you currently have before i could advise . . . you simply need to replace luma on your sd card with a newer version (9.1) Releases · AuroraWright/Luma3DS · GitHub to do so all you need to do is replace boot.firm then you are safe to go into the settings app and update the console

    Though you should get in the habit of making a nand backup before updating the firmware since it is possible for a new firmware update to break things until CFW developers can catch up. I also recommend waiting for a few days after a new firmware version comes out until it has been fully analyzed. Fortunately 11.8 is old enough that everything has been fixed/updated that needed to be and 11.8 didn't have any other nasty surprises other than breaking Luma (unintentional, fixed with Luma 9.1) and NTR (which is standard for anything that updates nfirm).
