    Can i update my 3ds xl to the newer version without losing my CFW I'm running Luma3DS CFW right now. Just curious if in the future if installing .cia files would require newer FW/CFW. If i don't need to update i won't worry about it. Just thought I'd ask because the only games i'll be downloading in the future is Pokemon Sun & Moon and Mario Maker 3DS when they are out.

    Thanks

    As long as you have a9lh you are always safe to update. So go ahead and update.
