    So I have an Old 3ds (US) in ver. 10.3.0-28, I wanted to get into the homebrew launcher through the browser but I already got a nag that keeps saying I need to update, and I got it before reading up on any way to avoid it.

    I heard of a way that I can get in without it if i connect to a certain DNS server, but apparently that doesn't work if I already tried and got the nag. I thought of formatting, but when i did, it said it needs internet.

    Why would it need that? The update is already downloaded I think it keeps saying the 3DS is ready for an update. If I format (restore factory settings) would the system automatically update? I don't want to do anything unless i'm sure first, don't want to screw up more than I already did.

    The 3DS won't update if you format. The internet is just needed to tell Nintendo's servers to unlink the NNID from the console.

    You're welcome!~ you can continue the guide to set up an emuNAND with menuhax which is ideal if you don't want to plunge into the A9LH set up although its very brick-free little risk, apart from common user error. Luma3DS is best for you in that case :)

    To set up an emuNAND i'd need to downgrade right? What does Luma3DS do?
