    What's the worst case scenario for the next update from Nintendo?
    Let's say I'm someone who has just downgraded to 9.2 and now wants to install rxTools, would it be possible to then update emuNAND to 10.3 and not to the eventual 10.4 (which let's say would fuck up everything)?
    I'm asking because I'm waiting for the hype to calm and for everything to be more straight forward, but I wouldn't want to miss this opportunity if a new update came out.

    sysUpdater exist and with it you can manually update.

    Don't even need to do that just update in system settings.

    If they were gonna do something to block emunand I'd think they'd have done something a long time ago tbh.
    Like they changed the way encryption worked for the N3DS so you cant get emunand past 9.5, but for O3DS they've just been releasing firmware update after firmware update and it's always working.

    If they could change encryption similar to how they do on the N3DS to prevent people from updating their emunand they'd probably have done so already, I'd wager.
    Unless there is a way they can do it but they just haven't figured out a way yet.

    In any case, we know 10.3 works atm. When an eventual system update comes out, either make a backup before updating, or wait for others to confirm that you can update before doing it. There's still a possibility they could change something that would prevent us from updating emunand past a certain firmware.

    And yeah you can run sysupdater in emunand to update to a specific firmware, so let's say 10.4 doesn't work, you can get the 10.3 update files and update with sysupdater.

    Well, can't Nintendo just change the keys, even for O3DS, like they did with 7.0?

    Nintendo can't patch emuNAND. EmuNAND will always support the latest upgrade (If you're on the O3DS). The N3DS has an encryption that limits emuNAND to 9.5 I believe.

    I don't believe so. I remember hearing that the way the N3DS block is achieved requires additional hardware which the o3DS simply doesn't have.

    Right. But that encryption isn't possible on the N3DS or it would have long been implemented. My guess is that they won't bother with O3DS.

    Thank you for the replies. So about N3DS, its emuNAND will never pass 9.5?

    All you have to do is hardmod and backup your nand to ensure your good for the long run. Right?

    Hardmodding isn't something everyone can do.

    You don't have to do it. You can pay others. My point being is that there is a way to lessen risk.

    Before screwing with your EmuNAND, always back it up first. It's easy to do and you'll be relieved if something ever goes wrong.
