    Hi,

    Yesterday, I've replaced RxTools by Luma3DS (menuhax boot) and I have 2 questions:

    -When I try to boot into Luma3DS (EmuNAND) without firmware.bin in luma folder, I get an error telling that my SysNAND version is too old whereas it's on 9.2! What should I do to resolve this problem?

    -How can I boot into Homebrew Launcher! Since I've replaced CtrBootManager by Luma3DS, I can't access to HBL anymore (even if I boot into SysNand, do the Themes Menu thing, scan the QR + I've renamed the HBL boot.3dsx into "boot_hb.3dsx).

    Thanks!

    You can boot the homebrew launcher with the HBL CIA. As far as Luma goes, make sure you have it set to not boot SysNAND.

    I installed it but it still boots on MenuHax
    There's just Luma3DS boot.3dsx on my SD Card (there's not for HBL)

    Rename the HBL 3dsx to something else with four characters then hex edit the Otherapp payload to point to it.

    I found the solution by myself, but thank you very much!

    I am pretty intimated by 2.1.0 downgrading and installing cias on my SysNand, updating it etc :/
    What's really better than MenuHax & Emunand (I just play 3ds games and some GB/NES VC Games)?

    With A9LH you get brick protection, a 100% bootrate, you no longer need EmuNAND so you gain an additional 2 gb of SD storage, you won't have to install GBA games and DSiWare twice, and SD reading will be faster. With the new guide downgrading is a breeze and you really shouldn't have any worry of bricking. I've used it to hack two N3DSs without any problems whatsoever.

    It looks nice! I think I'll do it.
    Is there no problem by updating SysNAND (will it remove the CFW)? I heard something called FIRM0/1 protects the SysNand, is that true?

    Yep. Just read Plailect's guide. You'll get to keep your saves and everything since you'll be flashing your EmuNAND over SysNAND. The guide covers this as well.

    I see, thanks!
    If I wanna restore my 9.2 SysNand while I'm on 11.1, would it possible?

    Sure, so long as you keep a NAND dump of it.
