    Is it safe to update my Old 3DS XL (currently on emunand 10.4) to 10.5 on reinand? I hear something about Nintendo being able to detect emunand now or something along those lines. Is that true?

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: I've updated to 10.5 and reinand and online features seem to be working perfectly.

    I'm pretty sure that's only for New 3DS. You should be fine, but I'm an idiot sometimes, so don't take my word for it on 10.5.

    im not sure of the compatibility of the CFW, i think they all work on o3DS. just make sure you update emuNAND. And where did you hear nintendo can detect emuNAND? im not very up to date, but i think thats false.

    I'm on 10.5 (N3DSXL tho) and not having problems... If they can detect emunand on 10.5 they should be able to detect it on 10.4 too.

    Official reiNAND doesn't run on old3DS, try CakesFW instead.

    Reinand doesn't work on 10.5? It works perfectly on 10.4. Problem with Cakes is I don't think I was able to run Smash Bros. with it.

    but the official build doesn't run on Old3DS, only a mod of it.
    there's a reboot patch included with Cakes, is there not? I know one exists...

    I've not tried it myself but I heard it works. it's Aurora Wright's mod I think.

    Well I updated to 10.5 and reinand is launching perfectly. Online seems to work fine so no issues here so far.

    Thanks for the input, all!

    I have updated my emunand to 10.5 few days ago and don't have any kind of problems.
