    So I've just installed MSET on my 3DS Console which is using firmware v8.1 and it seems to be working fine in sysnand. However, when I'm in emunand and I try to go to system settings..then attempt to exit the settings menu, it reverts me back to sysNAND? Is this the expected behavior for MSET when you exit from system settings in emuNAND?

    FYI, I'm using rxTools Pasta and I installed MSET 6.x.

    It's not an issue of rxTools. Exiting System Menu always makes you go back to sysNAND, no matter what you do :P

    Launching rxTools using themehax should keep you in the emanand.

    Ah. I didn't notice these symptoms before I installed MSET. I'm hoping that when I update the emuNAND, it won't mistakenly update the sysNAND upon re-entering the sysNAND home menu (due to this stated behavior). The reverting behavior is strange to me. Do you happen to know why that is expected?

    I'll try themehax next. Thanks for the advice!

    IIRC, the settings app needs to get your 3DS into a priviledged mode when launching so it can alter things, then it reboots it back to the normal state. And since turning your 3DS on and off gets you back to sysNAND, same for a reboot. And you'll get this "problem" too when exiting MH4U, Smash and other "big" games like that if you use an old 3DS.

    The best way to avoid updating your sysNAND is to use menuhax indeed, so that even a reboot leads to the emuNAND.
    And another smaller way to prevent it is to use a different theme on your sysNAND than on your emuNAND so you know where you are.

    I wouldn't call that "easily without internet" when menuhax is tons easier and works without internet too...

    Completely normal. 3ds's perform a soft reset after exiting sys settings. As stated above, themehax (homemenuhax or just menuhax) kicks in during sysnand boot and that's why it drags the system back to emunand (or wherever you configured your themehax to go to) after a soft (and hard) reset.
