    hey probably like 6months ago I finally downgraded and installed emunand and cfw, rx tools, on 9.x something (3ds isn't in front of me) . I downloaded the Pokemon A/O creator app and it says now supports firmware up to 11. Since there is a new version I can't go online and trade Pokemon with my buddy. Wondering if and how to upgrade to 11 as I have no clue what I'm doing

    Thanks

    You can update the emuNAND without issues and play from there.

    But of course, since you're on 9.x i'm assuming that you're using MenuHax. So don't update the sysNAND or you will lose access to the emuNAND.

    Sorry I haven't been following all this 3ds stuff, so does that mean my emunand would b 11.0.0-33 and the sysnand stays on the 9.x?

    If so if I look up a guide for updating emunand to 11.0.0-33 that would help me?
    Thanks

    Exactly, and you don't even need a guide to update the emuNAND. Just go to system settings and update as normally.

    And also, if you're using a New3DS, the procedure is quite different.

    If you're on emuNAND, you can update to 11.0 no problem in the System Settings. If you're on sysNAND, do not update.

    To avoid this problem, I would recommend following this guide to install A9LH and ditch emuNAND entirely: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki

    I have the original 3ds settings on emunand and follow the prompts seems simple enough.

    I'll take a look at that, im not to worried though because I have my games installed on the emunand and then if I switch to sysnand they r gone so easy enough

    With A9LH, you would move your emuNAND to your sysNAND, so your games would be fine.

    I thought there was a reason I didn't do that when following the guide but I can't remember haha

    Edit: so another question can I always update emunand from settings or does it need to be "hacked" or w.e it's called

    Always safe to update from settings.
