    All is well actually. I just recently hack my New 3DS XL and enjoying all its perks. After installing some new CIAs, I decided to take a break and put my 3DS to sleep mode and when I came back, I am surprised to see a notification light blinking blue and received a message about a system update. I decided not to update my system because I am afraid it might ruin the hack and my console. I also check google if there is really a new system update for 3DS but failed.

    My question is, what is this update? Is it safe to install? Current Sys 11.9.0-42U

    P.S. All of this happen just now.
    P.S.S I'm a noob in hacking so please bear with me.

    Thanks in advance.

    You update luma first and then to 11.9 - if you update the firmware first, the 3ds will boot to a black screen and you'll have to replace the updated luma file manually. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    He is already on 11.9 he said so in the op.

    @LeoDGreat did you delete any system titles like the h&s app for instance? Because that is why you will be getting a system update notice even though you are on latest firmware.

    I deleted Injected GBA games because it is corrupted and giving me error (ARM9 data abort) a while ago but its ok now. I also uninstalled some 3DS games to free up some space (via FBI).

    I manage to fix that error by deleting some title in red color and it magically fix my problem. I know I deleted some that are not related to the corrupted file because I only guess so I think you're right.

    So is it safe to update the system?

    If you have updated your system and Luma while doing CFW, I think it's completely safe to update now.
    Perhaps it only will download some system files that may have been deleted by any way.

    By the way, I also had this problem with some VC games installed from cias I got in a random site, and have solved by importing seed using FBI.
