    Can somebody link me to a tutorial of how to safely uninstall cfw from a n3DS XL?...And an accurate guide on how to put CFW on it again? I have my original 9.2 NAND backed up if it is necessary

    All you need to do is format your SD Card. If you had A9LH, you need to install a NAND backup without it, and if you want to get rid of emuNAND too, you have to delete the partition on a computer.

    There's a A9LH guide I'm sure somebody will link that covers everything you need to install CFW ^^

    Ok, I do not have A9LH installed. So I just format my SD card and start from the post downgrade tutorial? Also on a side note for those that have experience with CIA installers and CFW. The reason I want to start over with the CFW is because something happened during an upgrade of ReiNAND and nothing I do will run RXTools, ReiNand, or PastaCFW. So, as a primary CFW would you guys recommend RXTools or ReiNand. If I'm not mistaken RXTools isn't able to work on any emunand above 10.5 atm. Also, as for CIA Installers I have always used BBM on o3DS and FBI on n3DS, but someone said BBM works with n3DS can anyone confirm?

    Just backup your saves with JKSV delete all files on the card (not format it) then setup Luma3DS or Aureinand if you don't want a9lh. You won't lose your Emunand this way.

    rxTools should still work up to 10.7. Though it's outdated. You could try Luma3DS. Also, to remove the emunand partition, you could just use the latest version of Emunand9 and format it without the emuand under the SD Format Options.

    You can literally follow the A9LH and stop at Part 4 Section I step 28. That way, you have FBI on your emuNAND/RedNAND.

    A9LH guide: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    This is assuming your emunand is bricked//not usable anymore. Otherwise, just switch to Luma3DS and don't format.

    I would feel much more comfortable removing my emunand, formatting the SD card and starting from scratch at 9.2. Just to have a fresh start in case the emunand is barely hanging on.

    The first option, correct?

    Ok then format the card using sd formatter 4 with format type full erase and size adjustment on. Don't forget to backup your saves with JKSV and use Luma3DS.

    After that, I just start from scratch and choose a CFW whether it be RXTools, ReiNand, Luma3DS, etc.. ?

    Basically.

    For Luma3DS, I recommend the A9LH guide. If you don't want A9LH, and want only rednand+menuhax, just stop at Part 4 Section I step 28. That way, you have FBI on your emuNAND/RedNAND. The FBI injected is just used to have an entry to install your initial .cia manager, so just install DevMenu//BBM through it after that and use that for your .cias installs, and you can keep the inject FBI as backup on your emuNAND//RedNAND.

    So, in your opinion Luma3DS is best? I'm very comfortable with RXTools, but I'm not against trying new CFWs

    I think it's the best, but you can try out the others if you want, to find what you like.
