    so there is a cfw but im thinking of one that uses a9lh and checks your cfw version on boot and if its out of date it will auto update it

    Figuring out the wireless card registers is not fun.

    I would advise against these auto-updates. If the host gets compromised, who knows what you're getting installed. Manual updates, you can just wait a day or two; no issues come to light then copy one folder (luma) and one file (arm9loaderhax.bin) to your SD card.

    Yeah.. Using a ftp app lets you update manually in a minute without removing mSD card (which personally I hate to do on my n3ds).

    Given that my updater uses my host, which is based on github, I highly doubt the host will be compromised.

    Also the luma folder is just an empty folder anyway. No need to copy it each release.
