    I've heard various conflicting things and I want to be very clear.. Is it safe to update emunand on rxTools? I've heard the latest firmware screws with emunand, I've heard others say that on O3DS emunand updates just fine rxTools..

    I just want to update so I can remove this nag message. I'll switch to Luma or whatever else is best at a later date.

    Sysnand: 9.2
    o3DS
    themehax installed for autoboot

    thank you

    It's worth noting that duke_srg has said he won't be working on the CFW side of rxTools, so unless you're using the tools there's no need to switch.

    In addition, I'm expecting Nintendo to upgrade either home menu/errdisp in the next firmware update, which will break older firmlaunches, and if rxTools isn't being maintained anymore it may finally die :tpi:

    Between here and there
    RXtools has many bugs at 11.0 I recommend switching to another cfw

    Can you elaborate more on this?

    I'm not aware of rxTools having any 11.0 specific bugs, but it's buggy in general (twl patches don't work on n3ds, most debug offests are wrong, most of the tools don't work, etc.).

    It's obvious that rxTools is bad choice for N3DS, but for O3DS in my opinion it's not that bad like everybody say. It's old so some tools might be not working because 3DS scene nowadays looks little different compared to the past, but nothing major in my opinion. Still waiting for solress reply about that "many bugs".

    Honestly, I wouldn't recommend using it. Its codebase is a huge mess, and pretty much all development on the CFW side of things has ceased, which means it can break at any update (see my previous post).

    About the tools, they actually work if you go back to 2.6 iirc, they broke them sometime between 2.6 and 3.0 beta.

    Yeah, I see your point and you are right, but still I'm curious about that "many bugs" excluding not working tools or unsafe future updates - which by the way, may happen to other available CFWs.
