    I'm following the 11.3 guide on 3ds.guide and I'm currently on this step:

    https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup

    It says:
    Section II - Updating the System
    Update your device by going to System Settings, then “Other Settings”, then going all the way to the right and using “System Update”
    • Updates while using B9S + Luma (what you have) are safe
    • If this gives you an error, set your DNS settings to “auto”
    • If this still gives you an error and your NAND is below 9.2.0, follow 9.2.0 CTRTransfer, then try updating again

    Can someone please tell me if this is the way it should be done? I want to install FBI on my device but it just feels strange to update the system.

    Thanks for the fast reply. What's the reason behind updating? I don't get it.

    1 more question if you don't mind. Will this allow me to play games like Animal Crossing online if I download an iso (or whatever the file name is)?
