    How to Update your 3DS/2DS to 9.0 or 9.2

    If you want to boot rxTools as soon as you turn on your 3DS, then you need to set-up Menuhax; and to use Menuhax, you need to be on 9.0 - 9.2 firmware.
    Warning: This can brick your 3DS if done incorrectly! Be sure that you follow the instructions carefully!

    Requirements:
    • FBI installed in sysnand (Step 4a if you don't have Gateway or Ninjhax) OR any other cia installer on Sysnand
    • A rxTools 3.0 nightly (preferably the one linked in Step 2)
    Let's get started.
    1. Click HERE
    2. Click the CIA Format DLC's, Themes & Updates [Archive] result
    3. Click View Full Version : CIA Format DLC's, Themes & Updates at the top of the page
    4. Find the thread titled [MEGA] [CIA/BIN] MSET 4.X & 6.X backups, Browser backups, Update packs (All Regions)
    5. Scroll down to the section titled Updates
    6. Download either the 9.2 modified update pack for your region, or a 9.0 or 9.2 Full Update Pack for you region
    7. Once downloaded, open the archive and find the "updates" folder; place it on your SD card. There should be many cia files in that folder.
      • Example: SD:/updates/0004013000008003.cia
    8. Download Sysupdater
    9. Open the archive and put sysUpdater.cia on your SD card
    10. Insert your SD card in your 3DS
    11. Hold L while launching rxTools to get into the rxTools menu
    12. Press DPAD RIGHT until you highlight ADVANCED OPTIONS, then press A. Skip this step if using rxTools 2.5.2
    13. Go down to DEVMODE or PASTA MODE and press A
    14. After a few seconds, you should now be in sysnand; firmware spoofing is disabled but cias can still be launched in this mode.
    15. Launch FBI
    16. Install sysUpdater.cia (Destination: SD)
    17. Once installed, press HOME to see sysUpdater wrapped as a gift; unwrap it.
    18. Launch sysUpdater
    19. sysUpdater will ask you if you are sure you want to go ahead with the update; choose to accept it.
      • It will also tell you that you shouldn't be in Gateway mode, or have firmware spoofing. Do not worry about this, DEVMODE / PASTA MODE has no firmware spoofing, so sysUpdater will work as intended. Just be absolutely sure you are in DEVMODE / PASTA MODE (line 13), not RXMODE SYSNAND!
    20. Wait for sysUpdater to finish. When it is done, your 3DS will reboot into 9.0 or 9.2 firmware! You can now follow the steps to use Menuhax if you'd like.
    the downgrade process is about the same except you click downgrade.

    I'd like to update my 9.0U N3DS to 9.5, but I'm using the mset exploit and I've heard that updating while using an older mset can cause problems.

    Does anyone have any experience with that?

    Could I just run the update with the 9.2.0-20U files on there? or do I really need to downgrade to 9.0.0-20U and then upgrade back to 9.2.0-20U?

    So, I ran sysupdater in Pasta Mode and it went from Getting CIA information... straight to Successful rebooting in 10 seconds, it didn't even downgrade...
    Edit: I decided to try and update emunand again and it worked! I am now on 9.5.0-23U in emunand. Now 9.6+ needs to be cracked.

    It only took trying to update it 5 times and then it worked. I was shocked. One question though, must I be on the latest firmware(I know, not possible with n3ds) to play online with Pokemon and use Mystery Gift stuff?

    Ok, thanks. I am going to install the CIA updates, as I already have them downloaded. And with the eshop spoofing thing, I just have to run FBI and install them, correct?

    That's the thing I know for sure it will work for Gateway owners but for those who use CFW its hit or miss.

    I don't know according to @Tony_93 you only need NVER and CVER but I dont know im sorry I have no way to test since I don't use rxTools anymore. Remember you can always downwload CIA updates from the iso site.

    Ok, thanks. If you don't use rxtools, then what do you use?

    Oh, I didn't realize that you had a gateway. I decided not to bother with gateway since CFW is available and I own all the games I want, currently. So I just get CIA's of games I have so I don't have to carry around all my games.

    Does this tutorial work for Gateway emuNAND? Because the sysUpdater git clearly states that you shouldn't update your firmware while using Gateway.

    You can't update while using Gateway Sysnand, Emunand is not exclusive to Gateway or CFW so go ahead you just need to be in Emunand.

    It's a (U) 3DS, thanks.
    It just occurred to me though that the downgraded mset is not on my emunand, so problem solved, right?

    Gateway Sysnand? Is that the default gateway boot option?
