    Hello,

    I'm on N3DS, and I want to update Reinand to Lum3DS. So I have 2 questions:
    1_How does it work for doing this update (i'm not totally noob but not so strong for this manipulations..)
    2_ That manipulation will erase all my save and games installed in my N3DS ?

    Thanks.

    Depending on what you use (ninjhax, menuhax or a9lh) you replace a file or 2 on your sdcard and you're all set.

    Ok, remove your sdcard from your 3ds and open it in your computer.
    Remove the "ReiNand" folder inside the "3ds" folder.
    Remove the "rei" folder at the root of your sd card.
    Download the latest Luma3ds release, extract it.
    Open the "hax" folder and copy the "3ds" folder to the root of your sd card (this is basically for the Homebrew Launcher)
    If you use a bootmanager, change its settings to boot Luma3ds instead of ReiNand.
    If you don't use a boot manager, copy "boot.3dsx" from the "menuhax" folder and put it at the root of your sdcard, overwriting the ReiNand boot.3dsx

    Did you add it to your boot managers config?

    See if you find a file named "boot.cfg" or "boot_config.ini" at the root of your sdcard.
    Open in a text editor and replace the default path or ReiNands entry with the path to Luma3ds (/3ds/Luma3DS/Luma3DS.3dsx OR /Luma3DS.dat if you copied over the .dat as well)
