    Luma3DS has reboot patches for old3DS, so games like MH4 and Smash work on Luma3DS. ReiNAND doesn't have the patches, so they won't work on ReiNAND.
    Luma3DS has a user-friendly configuration menu at boot, ReiNAND does not.
    Luma3DS has GBA/DSi built directly into the launcher, where ReiNAND has an external loader for them.
    Luma3DS has built-in Payload Chainloading, ReiNAND does not
    And those are basically the major feature differences.

    luma is better.

    in all seriousness, luma has more features, and is just more user friendly. it's also the cfw used in Plailect's guide so more people are inclined to use it over another cfw for which there aren't instructions for within the guide.
