    I have a Gateway and was wondering about updating my EmuNAND. The thing is, I am not sure if SysNAND and EmuNAND are really separated, both are the same FW version. I don't want to accidentally update SysNAND... Is there a way to go about doing this and to make sure they are separated? Thoughts/help appreciated :)

    You can update your emunand even with linked nands, it doesn't matter.

    Ok, thanks :)
    Is it worth updating EmuNAND? Any benefits?

    The only benefit is being able to visit the E-Shop (Which wouldn't matter in emuNAND anyways since you can just download everything online) or getting rid of the update nag in emuNAND if that annoys you. That's all I can think of besides maybe a game update that you may need at some point... which you can also just download in CIA format anyways.

    Is an updated EmuNAND required for upcoming/newer games?

    No, it's only useful for amiibos, the theme shuffle feature and downloading updates directly from the menu. (but you must run freemultipatcher first)
