    So i followed this guide exactly and got my 3ds downgraded to 9.2 and now have luma3ds and have the ability to play cias.

    https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    My question now is im trying to play fire embled fates but it gets stuck on the nintendo ds screen. After some research it seems i need to upgrade my emunand firmware to 11.0 using the system upgrade option on the ds, but it says to be careful to do it on emunand and not sysnand.

    I did some readying but still am confused.... do i have emunand? how do i access it? Again I just followed the tutorial above and am still unsure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you.

    emunand is a thing for other cfw types. luma is genetically superior to those. you can update. wait you do have fbi on your 3ds, right?

    If it says "Emu" in the systems settings, you're safe to update from there, if it says "Sys" you're in sysNAND

    hi thanks for the reply i do have fbi on my 3ds and have installed the cia for fire emble but it gets stuck on the nintendo screen apprarently i read that i need to update my firmware to 10.3 or higher.

    So you say update do i just do that on the nintendo 3ds update option? I want to be really sure cause if i update to 11 i will loose my cfw. and it was a pain trying to find a 10.7 3ds hehe :)

    If it says "Emu" in the systems settings, you're safe to update from there, if it says "Sys" you're in sysNAND - it says sys 9.2.0 wait the peroson above says that emunand is not required in luma? is this correct?

    Did you follow the guide all the way with installing A9LH also? If so, you're be using an updated sysNAND like most people

    using the nintendo system update option right? haha im sorry but this feels so counter intuitive to upgrade to the latest firmware especially using the nintendo app. ok if you confirm it is good i will go ahead..... thanks for your help

    Yep its all fine, if you followed the entire guide you're 100% guranteed not to lose any CFW as it being A9LH/Luma3DS - you're welcome

    profalyton123 - hi quick question. i read something about a new firmware being released today? A friend of mine has a 3ds same as mine but is still on 9.2 lumad3ds. is it not safe for them to upgrade now with the new firmware release?

    He can update as long as he is on EMUNAND not SYSNAND.
