    I'm looking on how to update the emunand to 9.5 but, I'm not completely sure how to do it. Also, Is there any benefit on updating it to 9.5?

    Yeah, i'm looking also for a easy solution to update to 9.5 instead of 9.6 with manual update.

    Thats for updating SysNAND using CFW. Right now I'm trying to install the updates using DevMenu one update at a time. Worked for 9.0 to 9.2, about to try 9.3.
    Edit: 9.3 worked. Can't find EUR 9.4 for N3DS, jumping to 5.

    That guide is only for 8.1J. You'll need to find your own offsets for any other firmware version.

    For now, just keep your emunand at 9.0 or 9.2, whichever you started on. There will be a guide/tool for updating later.

    Are there game requirements already for 9.5?

    There is no benefit of updating to 9.5. You can do everything save accessing the eShop on 9.4 and below. Same as 9.5.

    Actually, no benefit, as the new firmware is 9.6 so even with 9.5, you wouldn't be able to do a system transfer or access shop. So, if you already have 9.0/9.2 for now, it's enough.

    Just use it with emunand 9.0 for now, and wait until Gateway team release an updated launcher which works with emunand 9.6.

    If I remember right, no game yet require 9.0, so it won't require 9.5 anytime soon (except maybe Xenoblade which is a N3DS game, but we don't even know if it'll work on Gateway, so it's not a big deal for know).

    Pokemon Shuffle doesn't work on 9.2, but it does on 9.5. Didn't test it on 9.4 though.

    It's a free-to-play if I'm right, so I hardly consider that a game, especially when they is already one released a while ago but I forgot the name (and it's probably why it require an higher firmware version).

    By the way, does someone tried this method (would require an hardmod to test it in case something goes wrong, so better not test it if you don't have one) :

    No, that's the only thing you can't do. But you can update games with .CIA files and play online with games as long as they're up to date. There's no reason to access the eShop.

    Are there any guides for doing this? I'm assuming the .cia's can be installed into emunand?

    Yes, emuNAND only. Basically you just use BigBlueMenu or DevMenu (in .3ds format) to install .CIAs. There are .CIA files out there for game updates, eShop games, themes, what have you.

    I'm looking for the same thing. It doesn't have to necessarily be 9.5 for me though, just any newer firmware.

    Can you use cart updates to update Emunand?

    Okay, so if I were to try to play a Sm4sh 3DS rom on an Emunand with 4.2 FW, it would update it correctly?

    Yes, SSB was the recommended way to update emunand to 8.1 when gateway didn't support 9.x at all. The 9.2 rom of SSB should work as well. But you have to be certain that you've formatted emunand before attempting to update it. If you're using sysnand in gateway mode updating from a rom will brick.
