Well.. does it still work? You need to install CFW if you want to play VC games including NES/SNES, and TWilightmenu++ homebrew software to run DS games. Here's the guide.

thanks
its working fine for now. i checked and it has luma3ds 6.6 installed.
was wondering if these options/config are ok in Luma3DS

Default emuNAND 1
Screen Brightness 4
Splash Off
PIN Lock off
New 3DS CPU off
Dev features Off

Autoboot SysNAND (x)
Use SysNAND Firm if booting with R (x)
Enable loading external FIRMs and modules ()
Use custom path ()
enable region language emu ()
show NAND or user string in System settings (x)
Show GBA boot screen in patched AGB_FIRM ()
Patch SVC/service/archive/ARM9 access ()

also the n3ds has the luma3ds updater (I think). it looks like a blue green 3d mario star with eyes. can i use this to update my luma3ds to the latest or shoud i just use the guide provided above (not sure on the version of the lumaupdater)

@anthony001 It's most likely you're still on A9lh, and you need to convert to boot9strap (use the guide on the link above to do it) in order to upgrade Luma3DS to the latest version.

There's Ftpd homebrew app that you can use to transfer files from your phone/PC to your 3DS. It's useful for small files, anything above 1GB will take some time. The Speed is about 300Kbps~1Mbit.

if using windows 10, you have to enable smb 1.0 to use micro sd card management. it's in windows features in add/remove programs. it's disabled by default, because smb 1.0 has security risks.
aye. I thank you for this information. Been maddening losing that connection to 3ds since i went to windows 10.

Backup your saves with Checkpoint for 3DS/VC games (if you have any) , DS saves are on the saves folder if you use TWilightmenu, Luma/GodMode9 & other homebrew software (fbi, Homebrew Channel..) files should be on the sd card you can either backup or re-DL'em from the internet. See Section 1 here https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup.html
