    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
    and as for emulators [Tutorial]The Homebrew Launcher Emulators all-in-one Noob's Guide (SNES/GB/GBC/GBA/NES)

    Don't /have/ to update but highly recommended for autoboot emunand.

    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
    actually using gateway alongside rxtools on 4.x allows for the switching of mset (some people prefer it)
    yes

    if i was op i wd stick with 4.1 for sysnand as 4x mset works every time....plenty other ways to access homebrew without using menuhax etc etc

    no need to update unless you wantto autoboot into emunand, which is best way imo.
    ofc u should install fbi in emunand
    just update emunand and you'll be good to go and can play all games .cia
