    I just successfully got redNAND working (I have "Emu" next to my firmware version). Is it now safe to update to the latest version while in redNAND?

    Yes, unless you're using a really old CFW.

    Should be, as long as it says Emu.

    Isn't redNAND like Palentine and stuff that requires a 4.x console and has a 10% successful bootrate?..

    • Q: What is the difference between RedNAND and EmuNAND?
      A: RedNAND and EmuNAND are both different types of NAND redirection with small differences in the way they are handled behind the scenes. The main advantage to using RedNAND instead of EmuNAND is that RedNAND will always use the smallest NAND size the device offers, regardless of the size of the SysNAND chip. For example, a New 3DS user with a 1.8GB internal NAND chip will only have to use 1.2GB for all RedNAND backups.

    I think you can use either, but older CFWs might not like RedNAND.
