So I was running running FW 10.2.0 on EmuMMC and 0.15 Atmosphere with a 400GB SD card and unpatched Switch and I don't ever, ever go Online with my CFW but due to only being on FW 10.2.0 I really need to update to FW 13.0.0 so i'm not left behind.

I also currently have 10.2.0 on my SysNand but rarely use this or go online although I'm not banned or anything.

Anyway today on my EmuMMC I've updated to Atmosphere 1.1.1 and the latest sig patches and all my games and Atmosphere are working great but i'm getting confused on how to update to FW 13.0.0 using Daybreak.

I've downloaded the latest 13.0.0 firmware from Darth's website but all the guides I find seem overly complicated and seem to say I need Hekate ( which i don't normally use as I boot straight into atmosphere ) and lockpick and I need to dump lots of keys but I'm sure I backed up all my important files when I originally built my EmuMMC

So do I still need to do all of this again..or can I just load up Daybreak from the Atmosphere 1.1.1 interface, select the OFW 13.0.0 from Darths website on my SD card and kick of the update ?

You can just update to 13.0.0 using Daybreak. Make sure you select the exFAT update option if your SD card is formatted as exFAT (FAT32 is highly recommended instead).

Left behind by who? I'm still on 10.X and majority of games still run just fine. Even the newly leaked Metroid Dread works on firmware 11.X. You do not need to be on the latest firmware.

What's the benefit of upgrading offical firmware and is it worth it. I'm running at firmware 11 and curius if should upgrade console to firmware 12 or 13.
I use homebrew so curius if I lose that or gain stuff.

Updating the firmware is only for running games that require higher firmware versions or features found in higher firmware versions. Homebrew don't run better on higher firmware versions. In fact, some don't run on higher firmware versions so its not recommended to update unless absolutely required for a game or online play.

And as of today I finally had to make the jump, thanks to ACNH 2.0

So far no one has been able to make it run on 11 and I didn't want to wait so I went to 13/Atmo.
