So I just installed rxtools on my 4.1 o3ds and I installed fbi to my sysnad I still want to continue using my gateway for a few things.

What are the best emulators available?

Do I need to update my sysnand before installing game cia files?

Do I need to update to install homebrew?

Last question should I install fbi to emunand?

first off dont install cias to sysnand unless you need to . . .so yes you should install fbi (or bbm or devmenu) to emunand and install cia games and emulators there
and you dont need to update sysnand at all

I just followed everything in the rxtool tutorial except formatting emunand and kept all files on the sd

Is it safe to update my emunand to the latest fw?

rxtools and gateway use the same emunand
Don't /have/ to update but highly recommended for autoboot emunand.
actually using gateway alongside rxtools on 4.x allows for the switching of mset (some people prefer it)
