hi, sorry if my question is stupid, but my knowledge is outdated, so i figured i ask in here, just to be safe.
it's been a while since i last updated both atmosphere and my emunand.
i'm currently running both sys & emu nand on 10.0.2, and AMS 0.13.0.
since i have read in between about different AMS forks, and alternatives. which version should i update to? and should i update nand too?

oh, and 1 more question, i recently bought a bigger sd card, do i just repeat the initial setup through partitioning & hekate, and then copy everything over from the old card,or is there a different way to upgrade the sd card?

Which to update? You can wait for updating 10.2.0 for now if you aren't playing online to make sure everything works with it, so 10.1.0 is a good option. But if you play online on your sysnand than update your sysnand fw to 10.2.0, directly from system settings. Before you update your fw, you must update your atmosphere first.
How to update? Download the latest version of atmosphere and copy it to sd card. After that download fw files for 10.1.0 . Use Daybreak on emunand to update.
SD Card Transfer. I need to know how your emunand is. Is it hidden partition or is it files format?

i currently don't have any game i play online, hence why it's a bit dated. i was mainly worried about compability with newer games.

daybreak? i used choidujournx so far. i asume it's the same principle?

i split my sd cart in 2 partitons and configurated 1 with hekate to contain the emunand. no clue what the term for it is

what Ams version would you recommend? should i stay on 0.13.0? update to 0.14.4, or use some custom fork?

Then you don't need to update to 10.2.0. You should go with 10.1.0. But before updating fw you should first update your atmosphere as I said, just go with the latest version of atmosphere. Daybreak is choidujournx alternative that is said to be safer and it comes preloaded on the latest atmosphere. Download fw 10.1.0 files and just update the emunand via Daybreak. You don't need to update SysNAND.
For micro sd card follow this guide .
