    Anyone know how to update to the latest version?

    I attempted to update but it stays on 2.6 reguardless of what I do. I replaced the files in hope that it would update but no dice. So I reverted back to the old files because I gave up but I really want to be on the latest version. Please help?

    The old RxTools is an extremely outdated CFW.

    It is strongly recommended to update to a newer CFW such as Luma3DS for additional, up-to-date features.
    Start from this popular guide; you can also optionally install Arm9LoaderHax too: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    If you already have an EmuNAND set up, I reckon you would be able to get away without wiping anything. You can just set up the Luma files on your SD card and everything should work.

    Someone might correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think I had to do any formatting/wiping when I jumped from RxTools to Luma.

    If you're setting up A9LH, I think you may have to do a bit of formatting. Or maybe that was in the old Plailect Guide... I'm a little behind in the 3DS scene as of late. :P

    If you want to keep your content ,don't forget to backup your Emunand with decrypt9 or emunand9 before you start to make things easier for you (you can then inject it to your sysnand in Section IV - Restoring the System) or follow this guide if you didn't backup one : https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Move-RedNAND

    No idea why you're following that guide if you want to install a9lh+luma ? just access your sysnand > Homebrew launcher via the web browser >start decrypt9wip and do the CTRtransfer , at the end of the guide and if anything done correctly you will have luma and a9lh set up

    Which guide did you follow, the Plailect one?
    If so just start your 3ds while holding start, you should see the hourglass menu.
