    I'd have to check what I'm on at home, but yes. I'm running quite a few things actually.
    I just want to know how to update properly without messing things up.

    update the emunand, not the sysnand.
    if you update the sysnand, it's game over for you

    If you're running menuhax+cfw, make sure your nands are unlinked.
    If so, you can safely update your emunand without removing the sd

    if you are a returing member to the scene and havn't touched your 3ds for a while, first thing you should do is update to 9.2. Follow this guide on how to update to 9.2.0. From there follow this guide to get the latest cfw.
