    Hey Guys,

    right now, my 3DS is on Firmware 11.0.0 and I've Arm9LoaderHax and Luma (latest version) installed.
    I want to update my Firmware to the latest one (11.2.0?) but when I try to update via System Settings, the Update always gives me an error.
    I don't think that I've any modified System Titles installed :s.

    Is there a way to update my 3DS (New3DS EUR) to the latest firmware?

    Make sure the DNS is set to Auto, and not manual. TubeHax DNS messes with it.

    This will reset your home menu data!!

    First try loading up HourGlass9 as a payload, and:

    Clear Home Menu’s extdata by navigating to the following folder on your SD card: /Nintendo 3DS/(32 Character ID)/(32 Character ID)/extdata/00000000/
    EUR Region: Delete 00000098
    USA Region: Delete 0000008f

    Restart, after, then attempt to update. If not you'll have to redownload your home menu (fresh, unpatched cia from 3DNUS) for your current system version and install it with DevMenu or Big Red Menu so you can overwrite a currently used file. Then you can install updates.

    will try it when I'm at home, thank you!
    If it doesn't work, I'll answer here again.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    If you're doing this for pokémon prepping, you might be able to add the friends sys-module Nver. It basically spoofs things. The other, just a possibility, there's maintenance....or 11.8, because Trump is old Youngoos.

    Sorry. In the directions. ignore HourGlass9 and replace that with "Insert SD card into computer and delete the appropriate file". ^_^ Although you can do this with GodMode9 if it's already on your SD card.

    If you made a home menu modification, you will have to reinstall an unmodified home menu cia. You can get that by using 3dnus. The TitleID and version are found here: https://www.3dbrew.org/wiki/Title_list search the page for home menu, and the version will be the latest one.
