I've had a o3ds which I swapped for this n3ds and downgraded. So know a little bit but just can't seem to update emuNAND via system settings. I've read this is/can be normal

the way is verry simple.
The Firmware file with this md5 : AAA5960A3061DA1F08D944D8E7017BD6 , works perfekt
i follow this guide, http://gbatemp.net/threads/homemenuhax-v2-1-support-for-fws-10-2-10-3.407005/ and i put the safe sysupdater
in the sysupdater folder.
In the folder must be in, sysUpdater.3dsx, sysUpdater.smdh, and SafeSysUpdater.3dsx.
I launch the Safesys first and check with button a, next back by finish to press a, in menu and go the file sysupdater and press the button for downgrade and complete.

What's everyone's opinion regarding the best CFW for an old 3DS? Region free, screenshots, high CIA compatibility etc.

Currently on 9.2 and thinking of just installing rxtools like on my AC:NL XL.

Old 3DSXL U.

Thanks, my sister has that type but the NES looking one. Any particular steps or just the same steps using sysnand in tutorial? I kinda had to follow a bit different stuff for 9.9.0-26U. I wanna make sure her 3DS remains safe and do my research first.

The cia's I used before were the full 9.2 cia's but the one from the megaupload link first instead of the actual thread.
