    Download both payloads(go to their GitHub and download the latest release)

    Look for:

    Hourglass9.bin
    Decrypt9.bin

    Put them inside the folders Luma/payloads from the SD card of the 3DS

    Rename them to xxxx_H9.bin (for hourglass)

    And xxxx_D9.bin for Decrypt9

    xxxx being a button

    For example if you want to boot Decrypt9 with start button it would be start_D9.bin

    If you want to boot Hourglass9 from pressing the start button, name the Hourglass9.bin to start_H9.bin

    In what context? If you followed the guide as written you won't have an emuNAND.

    EmuNAND is a copy of your real system NAND (memory) run from the SD card. It can have data different to your real system memory (like be on a different firmware). It was required prior to a9lh because hax were limited to certain firmwares, so you would keep your real system on an exploitable firmware, and update your emuNAND so you could still access online and play more recent games. We don't need it any more though, it's for more niche applications now (eg having an emuNAND of a different region to your real system).

    No, they're stored in the SD card. You have to backup your Nintendo 3DS folder if you want to keep your games & saves when restoring a NAND backup.

    Interesting... Also, let's decide if I have a backup of my 11.2 sysNand (Luma+A9lh) and I decided to update my 3ds to 11.3. Can I downgrade it to 11.2 with out a enumand?

    You don't need an emuNAND for anything. If you restore the 11.2 backup, your 3DS will be on 11.2.

    Luma updater updates Luma (the arm9loaderhax.bin). At the end of the guide it tells you to update. You don't have to use Luma updater in the guide because you will already be using the latest version.

    If you have a9lh and the latest Luma, yes.

    That's the stable release. Hourlies and nightlies have more up to date code but may have bugs.
