    If you have Luma and AL9H, update your Luma then download the last 11.3 update, just to be safe.
    As for playing online, its safe however pay attention that you might get banned if you get caught cheating or using mods online.
    If you're just playing online for fun, you're fine.

    but thought it wasnt a good idea to update it as ruins the homebrew launcher and seems risky is there a way to revert back to 11.2 if needed then if im running luma and AL9H

    Nope. It doesn't.
    It's not.
    Make a nand backup in decrypt9. You can restore it later if you're really that anal about it.

    also when updateing luma should i get the nightly build or the other one as i got the other one as didnt wanna risk
    this is what mmy seller told me Essentially you can update to the latest version of the 3ds software without it affecting luma or a9lh, however it can break the home brew launcher. I believe there is a fix for that out and has to be downloaded from http://smealum.github.io/3ds/ ps how do i make a back up before i update dude im such a newb on the 3ds

    Download the homebrew starter pack from smealum's website and extract it to the root of your 3DS's SD card, alternatively you can just update Luma to the latest hourly which also fixes homebrew launcher.

    As long as you don't plan to access the Nintendo's eShop my guess is that you're fine, regardless you'll lose nothing by updating.

    Just update dude.

    The "homebrew launcher breaking," as you call it, is just you having an outdated version.

    All you need to do is update your homebrew launcher, and update luma3ds while you're at it (get the latest stable version, that's fine; or use the updater cia, it doesn't really matter) and then update through the system settings.

    If you really want to create a backup:
    • Make sure you have at least 2GB of space free on your (micro)SD card
    • Check your /luma/payloads folder; you might have a file called something like start_dec9.bin (the first part before the underscore might be different, it's the button to press and hold on bootup to load it)
    • If you don't have that file, go download decrypt9, rename it as above, and put it there
    • Cold boot your 3ds while holding start or whatever
    • Figure the rest out, make a sysnand backup
    • Copy the file it made to your computer
    • ???
    • profit

    Hi I want to pitch in but not steal this thread. I just did the same Luma and a9lh hack from 3ds.guide last night. following it verbatim I suppose I am on the latest Stable release of Luma......... and I am confirmed on 11.3. If I was to "obtain" CIA files and play online would I get banned or should I update my Luma...... to the nightlies?...... I just want a stable build.. and not have to update everyday to play online ha..

    You will not get banned for playing online with CIA files. You will only get banned if you blatanly cheat online or access the in-game online features for a game that hasn't been released yet. You also do not have to change to Luma nightlies.

    You do not have to update to Luma nightly, but you should be on the latest stable Luma.

    Don't play games onlines that haven't been officially released yet. That's how a whole bunch of people got perma banned for playing SuMo before release online. Unreleased game, even if it's CIA, is not safe for online play. After it's released officially, have fun. Until then, stay offline. Just have your fun offline.
