    i posted in anothe section but i think this section is better to post.

    i have my o3ds xl on 6.2 and i want to update it to 9.0 - 9.2 so i can use themehax can i use my sky3ds to do so i looked on 3dsdb and found these game Tomodachi Life needs 9.2E to run (i am EU)

    if i load this to my sky3ds will it update to 9.2? and is it safe? or is there somthing else i need to do, would hate to update past, i have a backup of my NAND but i dont really want to hardmod if not needed.

    thanks

    Does your 3ds have a working Internet Browser?

    Rxtools devmode + sysupdater. There are already a lot of thread asking that, research.

    With 6.2 go

    NH2 > Mini pasta > NH2 > FBI > Install sysupdater > mini pasta > sysupdater to 9.2

    Yes. Use your SKY3DS -> Cubic Ninja -> Pasta CFW-> Ninjhax 1.x -> FBI > Install sysupdater -> Pasta CFW-> disable firm launch -> sysupdater to 9.2.

    Or the below:

    i used 3DNUS to try and download the 9.2.0-20E update but it keeps getting stuck at this

    Code:
    Downloading 0004013800000002 v17120
    Title has 1 contents.
    Downloading file1...
    
    i tried 4 times and i left it for over an hour each time

    i can't find anywhere else to download the update from (one i found on the iso site said not to install to sysNAND because it will brick)

    Have you extracted the 3DNUS folder before running it? I know that when I tried it while it was still in the zip file it wouldn't do it, but once I extracted everything to a folder it did.

    The one on that iso site works correctly in sysNAND, I installed it some weeks ago. 9.2 with AGB_Firm, TWL and others patched.

    9.2 was removed from the servers you need to go to another site that hosts the files you need. Old gbatemp would be cool with that kind of stuff :/

    If you have rxTools go Dev mode, install sysupdater, and update to 9.2 with Sysupdater. Always make a Nand backup before doing anything

    I used the 9.2 pack with patches (MSET and other cool stuff).
    Install sysUpdater in sysNAND. Boot DevMode, run sysUpdater and install the 9.2 pack. In my case, it did work.

    It is not available from 3DNUS anymore. You have to get it from the ISO site.

    Go to the site, go to the "CIA Format DLC's, Themes & Updates" subforum, click on the thread titled "[MEGA] [CIA/BIN] MSET 4.X & 6.X backups, Browser backups, Update packs (All Regions)", and click on the link that states "9.2.0-20E (Full)". This is the correct file you need.

    Now, put the latest rxTools nightly on your SD card, along with sysupdater, and the correct FBI to inject to H&S app (not required if you can use Ninjhax 1.1), put the updates into a folder on the root of your SD card called "updates" and install sysupdater. Now start rxTools while holding 'L'. Go to Advanced, Developer Mode (or DevMode) (make sure you do NOT launch rxMode SysNAND or you will brick), launch sysupdater and update. Your 3DS should automatically restart.

    If you are unable to install sysupdater, make sure you create a file called title.db in the proper folder on your SD card (Nintendo 3DS/[random characters]/[random characters again]/dbs/title.db) You will have to create the dbs folder. Boot up your 3DS and go to System Settings. Press Data Management, Nintendo 3DS, Software, Reset.
