    i'm noticing now we must be on the latest FW now to go online w/ MH4U/Pokemon/Etc, i see almost no point in staying on 10.3 (that an di want to get Pokemon Yellow VC on the 27th, so i'd need eShop access anyway)

    However will i still be able to install nonlegit cias (non signed ones not pirated one etc.) still via BBM/FBI etc while on 10.5? (EMUNAND) (My Sysnand's still on 9.2 and i have an O3DS)

    I have a 10.5 emuNAND and can easily install CIAs using BBM and FBI.

    I had NTR when I was on 10.3 but I didn't use it enough to warrant having it so I got rid of it before I even updated. I would assume that it still works, check for the latest NTR version and put that on your SD card.

    I use NTR, run through RXTools though, and I can install CIAs just fine using BigBlueMenu. On 10.5 emunand, 9.2 sysnand

    All that you lose by updating your emuNAND to 10.5 is memchunkhax2, which means no downgrading and no installing legit CIAs. Though with a backup which you presumably have you can downgrade emuNAND as long as your sysNAND remains on 9.2 and can also install any CIA. Essentially you lose nothing by updating, at least if you have a backup so that you can revert back if Nintendo has a trap we're unaware of.

    You don't need memchunkhax2 to do either of those things on emuNAND. You can downgrade with sysUpdater at will on emuNAND (but why would you want to downgrade emuNAND, aside from debug testing?), as well as install any CIAs.

    somewhere
    - Not on EmuNAND.
    - It'd remove any unsigned CIAs going from SysNAND 9.2 > 10.5 (but why would you do that?)
    - Not on SysNAND, if they're legit signed CIAs.

    sysnand and emunand are the same 'thing' - if a pirated cia would not get removed on emunand it wouldn't get removed on sysnand.
    but naturally on 10.5 we don't have hacks so they won't be playable without hacks.

    nothing will get removed, right :)

    BigBlueMenu, it's built from the official CIA installer made by Nintendo. Personally, I prefer it over FBI, but that's just my opinion.
