    Emunand will be created during cfw setup. It will be a copy of your sysnand at first. To update the Emunand Independently you need to unlink it, meaning after Emunand is setup you format your sysnand again. Then they will be independent from each other, resulting in two folders on your microsd. This will allow you to update the Emunand while your sysnand stays on 4.x.

    You should never ever go over 9.2 on your sysnand, as this will break any entry point. Once Emunand is set up you do everything over Emunand, which when you are on old 3ds you can simply update via settings, or a game. Just make absolutely sure you are on Emunand or you will break cfw compatibility.

    my old 3ds's version is actually 2.2 is there a way to update it between 4.x and 9.2 without the need of a game cartridge ?

    Yes with sysupdater but that would mean already having the possibility to install unsigned CIA. But easiest would be a game that installs 9.2

    Updating your sysNAND to 9.2 gives you the option of themehax, which many use to launch directly to cfw or emunand, without the need of an internet connection.

    Pretty sure CFW is easy to install on 9.0-9.2 without physical copies of games, there is literally a tutorial for it and it works fine

    I thought there is an easy way to boot emuNAND (rxTools) without internet connection just by using 3DS profiles.

    depending on your previous browser version and if the update has a internet browser stub (gamecard updates higher than 4.5 may have stubs depending on the game) then installing cfw will be hard and may require ninjhax or a flashcard
    while if by chance the game card update is higher than 4.5 and does not contain stubs then you are lucky so for safety and simplicity get one that allows him to update between 4.0-4.5

    it may take up to 5-10 minutes for the update depending on how low your current fw version is but if you can get away with it go for it here is a list of games you can use 3DS Games with firmware updates in the 4.1 - 4.5 range - EurAsiaWiki
