I've had CFW for a while now, but I don't know what to use it for other than piracy and coldbooting to emuNAND.

You want a different cfw right?
Why? If your cfw works just fine, then don't change it.
I have seen these new cfws and arm9loaderhax, cool and all but I don't need them. I'm using RXTools and it works. I'm not changing it.

Talk to me when you accidentally update SysNAND. A9LH is clearly superior. It's even more of a install-n-forget experience than Menuhax+emuNAND.

You know there's more than just Luma in the CFW world. In fact, I've made a lovely list for everyone to check out to see them all

But please stop using RXTools, its grossly out of date and there's far better options.

People use luma more than others because it's one of the best in terms of features and being user friendly. It's the happy middle ground between other CFW that offer more features but not noob-friendly, and something like Salt that is install-and-forget and very noob-friendly but may not have as many options.
But yes, rxTools needs to stop being used. Even if they continue to go the menuhax coldboot method (which is inferior to A9LH) Luma is far superior at this point compared to rxTools which has little to no development at this point.

I've used RXTools since there was a downgrade option for 10.3 I believe.
Since around January, know that.
I have never, EVER had a issue with updates, because I make sure everything is ok. Never ever accidentally updated, and I doubt it will ever happen.

I don't care about the other CFWs, RXTools gets the job done.
Emunands, "game backups" and firmware updates. Good enough for me. Hell, I don't even play much of the newer games anymore.
I believe that arm9loaderhax is permanent. if I have it in my 3DS, I can't sell it at this game store.
If it works, stick with it.
RX is easy, and simple. I like it.

Exactly. With A9LH, you don't need to make sure everything is OK (as long as your CFW has firm protection). Have fun "being careful" while I go and brick->restore my SysNAND with A9LH and have extremely fast boots :)

Arm9loaderhax can be removed with a 9.2 backup or by safea9lhinstaller by itself.
Also, it is way slower and less reliable than modern cfws
