hi there,
i've successfully went through the 3ds guide site and converted the new 3ds xl 11.3 to luma3ds and everything's good.

However, at the end of the guide under 3ds.guide/finalizing-setup section II it tells me to update the system before backing up the sysnand on section VII, so i've done just that and does that mean i'm only backing up my sysnand based on version 11.6?

what happens if i want to reset the 3ds to factory stock? eg, if i follow the guide to uninstall cfw on 3ds.guide/uninstall-cfw, does that mean i'll end up with a stock 11.6 instead of 11.3 and once i did that i won't be able to use the old methods anymore to mod the 3ds again to cfw?

Ok. That's good, congrats! But what do you need?

Ok, I see what you need now. If you want to revert to stock you can 9.2 ctrtransfer but really I don't know why you would want to.

if you're planning on reverting your cfw 3ds back to a stock firmware that can still be hacked then you can still find 9.2 ctrtransfer images floating around then just follow the instructions from the guides current ctrtransfer page.

great to know that, so basically CRTTransfer is used to downgrade the system to any firmware i like?

i was trying to understand how the guide in 3ds.guide works in regards to why it is using sysnand instead of emunand in the first place to mod the 3ds. From what i understand (correct me if i'm wrong), emunand is like having the ability to emulate a specific version of firmware on the 3ds while using older nand on the 3ds, while sysnand overwrites the nand on the 3ds so isn't emunand always the safer and better solution?? (although i assume it will be slower to load)

Emu = Emulated
Sys = System
Nand = Vital data storage for 3ds
You are right for the most part but emunand isn't really any safer than sysnand, it's almost impossible to screw up now-a-days. It used to be used for expirimenting with cia's and such encase of a brick, but now with how easy everything is and with NTRBoot, it's unneeded. It is best explained here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-a-noobnands-guide-to-sysnand-and-emunand.410439/

EmuNAND was needed in the past when you could only have hax on your system at a certain firmware (eg 4.x or 9.2). An emuNAND meant you could play games that required a higher firmware, while keeping your real system low enough to have hax. Now that the system can have hax at any firmware there is no need for an emuNAND. With B9S it is the sysNAND that has the hax no matter if you have an emuNAND or not, so emuNAND is not "safer". It just causes inconvenience for next to no gain (gains explained up above - not relevant for 99% of the hacking population).

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
