    I'm on some Spanish CIA website that is actually trust worthy, but it says the CIA I want to download should be on a 10.1 firmware. Is this true? Can I install it without bricking my 3DS?

    Edit: I'm on 9.2

    Depends on the CIA, but if anything it should be 9.6 if on the New 3DS XL if it's not already cryptofixed

    Is it a game? Can you name it? You are being so vague here...

    There is no game that requires 10.1 as a minimum firmware, the latest is Monster Hunter X that needs 9.9

    I didn't name it so I didn't run the risk of getting banned.
    I'm trying to get Terraria.

    The game is Terraria if that helps

    your emunand needs to be updated to whatever the required firmware is unless the cia is spoofed

    Then I wouldn't be able to install CIA files would I? I'm using rxTools on 9.2

    Yes, but I wouldn't be able to install them if my Emunand is on 10.1. RxTools has to be on 9.2

    You aren't risking any ban for naming a cia you want to install.

    You can be warned and then banned if you start linking places to download them.

    But no, if a cia is a higher firmware from your system you need to firmware spoof it, if it isn't it will just give an error message when you try to play it, no bricking or anything like that

    Okay. How can I spoof it? Can you link me to a thread?
    Thank you for your help, btw. I really appreciate it. I can be a newb sometimes :P

    Have a cia installer on emuNAND - otherwise what is the point of emuNAND if you can't put games on it?

    What? No.

    You can safely update emunand to 10.4 and install cias using rxTools on it.

    Emunand doesn't need to be in 9.2

    So, I currently use rxTools on 9.2 firmware. Idk whether its Emunand or Sysnand, but I can tell you I boot into it through HBL. Would I just boot up my 3DS normally and update there? Or do I have to go into rxTools and update from that...

    You go to rxTools > emunand > system settings > update it.

    If you just turn on your system and update, it will update sysnand and screw you up.

    It needs to say RX-E in front of the firmware version before you update
