    Hello guys, i haven't used my 2DS in a long time (i think 8-9 months) and today i decided to play some games wih it again...

    Before i begin i just want to say that i'm still using RxTools (yea i know)... Anyhow i updated the firmware (like always used to do), but this time w9hen i updated the firmware i cant boot up to EmuNAND anymore (SysNAND work if i remove the SD card)...
    All i get is this screen

    Everthing is black, nothing pops up...

    Please help, what can i do? :(

    Also is it possible to have Luma3DS with EmuNAND? :(

    Just swap out RxTools with Luma3DS, as long as it still supports whatever entrypoint you were using. In the future, I strongly recommend following 3ds.guide to setup everything with A9LH in SysNAND

    Yeah, update your CFW (which is using an old kernel, but the 11.3 operating system requires the 11.3 kernel)

    Of course, just don't select the "autoboot sysnand" in the options; but if you install A9LH and do NOT also use Gateway, emunand only brings disadvantages

    This. If you do use Gateway as well, you can use a SysNAND-only setup if you're on 11.2, but on 11.3 SysNAND with A9LH you need an 11.2 EmuNAND (setup the EmuNAND before updating SysNAND).

    Where is the guide? I used to save a guide, but it doesn't work anymore :(
    Is there a "new" guide?

    How will it bring disadvantages? I mean isn't it "better" to have EmuNAND instead of SysNAND?? With EmuNAND you don't mess around with the firmware and don't risk to update to the latest firmware and screw everything up... That's what i remember a long time ago.. I might be wrong though :D :P

    My SysNAND is 9.2, wont that work? :(
    I don't want to mess around with the SysNAND firmware :(

    The hack/CFW that the above guide has you install will allow you to update your SysNAND normally without losing your CFW. You can still use EmuNAND if you want, but the disadvantage would be slower boot times and wasted SD space.

    Wasted space on SD
    Much more work to replace SD cards
    Not compatible with DSiware
    Not compatible with GBA mode
    Slighly increased battery use, as the SD can't be stopped as long as the power is on
    Impossible to run the console without SD card or to remove it with the power on

    Non-issue if you use A9LH and a kernel-protecting CFW (all currently maintained ones except Gateway). You can update your system as much as you want with no risk of permanent damage (the risk is actually less than a non-modded system), and you can backup the nand at any time
