    Hey guys. I have an o3DS with a 9.2 SysNAND and a 10.7.0-32U EmuNAND. The system says that there's a new system update everytime I turn the console on (booting on EmuNAND, of course) and whenever I try to access eShop (I'm not even sure I can access it, but anyway). If I want to use the eShop and/or play games online, I need to update my EmuNAND, right? Is it safe to update directly from the settings menu or do I need to do something else? What about updating the games? Couldn't find a definitive answer looking around, can someone help? Oh, and my NANDs are unlinked(is that the right term?), just so you know. Thank you.

    Sorry, forgot to mention. I use RX-Tools. Actually, the 3DS is not mine, it's my girlfriends. She only uses it to play casually and don't mind the console the way it is now, while I don't know much about homebrewing and stuff, so I'm afraid of switching anything unless there's a real need and all. So, to be sure, it's always (at least for now) safe to update my EmuNAND from system settings app? And what about updating the actual games? Is it safe to udpate them from the eShop as well, or should I just install a new CIA of the updated version (or a CIA for the update, on that matter)? Thank you for your time.

    You can treat your emunand, and all of it's in region games completely normal, though make sure you use system settings to update, and not the prompt to update upon boot, as that will update sysnand. Update out of region games with their respected cias

    Switching to Luma3ds is as simple as moving a few files along in the SD card and that's it. Provided you use menuhax/hbl manager as your entrypoint.
