    Hi. I have not been keeping up with what's going on with the 3DS scene and last updated my Emunand to 11.1.34-E. I would like to know what would be the best way to update my Emunand to the latest? Yes I have tried searching but am struggling to get to a answer. I know that I use Reinand to access my Emunand but other than that I'm not sure of specifics. Any help would be super appreciated.

    Follow https://3ds.guide on your sysNAND (you might have to hold L at boot or just boot without the SD card in and put it in after the home menu shows up), and follow the optional move emuNAND section which is near the end of the guide.
    Also, after booting into sysNAND, uninstall menuhax by changing the theme. It will interfere with the process.
    Part of the guide will be to update.

    Would I need to install from scratch again? My Emunand is currently decoupled from the Sysnand, I remember doing that bit.

    Are you running menuhax or A9LH? If menuhax then yes, you'll be starting from the beginning. If A9LH, then don't follow the guide from scratch, do this instead: put Luma 7.0.5's arm9loaderhax.bin on the root (https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases) then follow https://3ds.guide/a9lh-to-b9s

    Boot up without the SD card inserted, then put it back after the home menu appears. Change the theme. Power off, then power on (with the SD card inserted). If it goes to sysNAND not emuNAND you must have had menuhax.

    Power on the system with no card inserted and hold select. If you get the Luma configuration screen, you have A9LH installed and Luma installed to CTRNAND. If it shuts off immediately, you have A9LH. If it boots normally, you have neither.

    Once you know what you have, if you'd like everything you need all in one download, you could check out my InScripted AIO. It's on a certain iso site in their "CFW Discussions" forum. All you need to do is copy over the configuration in the "B9S Configurations" folder that matches your hardware, and then go into "Installers" and copy over either the contents of the "A9LH to B9S" folder if you have A9LH, or the "One & Done" folder if you do not.

    "A9LH to B9S" will run the B9S Installer automatically on boot. After installation, just hold left on a reboot after configuring Luma, hit home, select "Scripts" and run the cleanup script.

    With "One & Done" all you have to do is enter the homebrew menu, and run OldLoader. You may have to wait a few seconds for it to work, but you should eventually see a menu with 3 install options. Just pick the first one. When the system reboots, configure Luma. It will probably crash with Menuhax installed. But it all depends on whether you set it up to boot SysNAND or EmuNAND. It should be able to boot your EmuNAND fine. It's easy to uninstall the Menuhax, but it's a waste of time if you plan to transfer EmuNAND to SysNAND, because that's going to wipe it out anyway.

    Once you have B9S installed, you can decide what to do with your NANDs. If you have any saves you need to backup on your SysNAND for GBA/DSiWare games, you might want to take care of that (there's a copy of Luma Legacy hotkeyed on Y you can use to boot to it temporarily to check). Once you're sure there's nothing you need on it, I include a script in "Extra Options" for transferring EmuNAND to SysNAND. First use the "NAND Backup" ones to make a backup of SysNAND, then just run it. It will do a safe restore that preserves your B9S. At that point, you can just update your SysNAND to 11.5

    The official guide recommends deleting EmuNAND at this point by backing your card up, reformatting, and copying everything back over. You can do that if you like, but it's a lot of trouble given the relatively small amount of space reclaimed. If you don't need the space, just restore your 9.2 SysNAND backup to EmuNAND (the easy way to do this is to move it to the root of the drive and restore it with Decrypt9). You can setup Legacy to run EmuNAND and have a very fast way into a *hax homebrew menu. Rosalina does a good job with most homebrew apps, but there's some it just will probably never work with. So, it doesn't hurt to have *hax as a fallback.

    If you decide not to switch your NANDs around, and you want Luma to boot your SysNAND, reboot and hold Y to boot with Legacy. Once you are at your home menu, just pick a basic theme (like the black one) to kill Menuhax, reboot, and you should have regular Luma working with SysNAND. At that point all you need to do is setup Rosalina.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Also, if you're not in a big rush, I'm planning to release R5 tonight. It adds the ability to configure your hotkeys via scripts (in BootCTR9 or with Luma's chainloader). Just performing some final tests.

    Definitely Menuhax from doing those tests. Thanks so much for all the advice just what I was looking for, I'll get stuck in this weekend.
