    I am wanting to know if it is completely safe to update my cfw new 3ds from sys 11.8.0-41 to the latest firmware every where I google online I do not find much details of it an ill be honest im new to this hacking 3ds scene a lil I have a lot of 3ds cia games an my own 3ds games ive purchased over the years installed on my system an I dont want to lose access to them if I do update my 3ds an then I lose access to cfw an everything on my system as in custom splash screen, an custom themes no longer work nor badges either an yes ive unlinked my Nintendo account just incase it riskes me getting banned so I didnt want to risk it knowing how Nintendo works nowadays keeping track of banning people,

    so I unlinked my account so my question is how do I update my system safely an if it is possible do I have to back up my system which is not a problem but I need like a step by step instructions please dont hate me for asking for details ive spent a few hours trying to find anything an im unable to find anything about my firmware just something about firmware 9 an 8 which is obsolete completely an has nothing to do with the 3ds system nowadays but if anyone does know anything about this matter im having please help me on what I require as in files an other info I might need to do this process.

    I mean, it wouldn't help to have a more up-to-date sysnand backup, but you don't have to make one.

    Thank you everyone it worked successfully an i backed up sysnand an everything works smoothly no issues an no issues i was just worried if it didnt work my 3ds would just be a paper weight then cause i dont plan on buying games anymore for the 3ds due to the switch being out.

    You need to link back the account which had the games purchased. They are all linked to that one account.

    But if i use that one i might get banned i only linked it due to me being allowed to update games if possible id assume?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I relinked it but my games arent there why

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Nvm i i fixed it but i do not want my account linked tho is there a way to use a new account an not lose games? Does that mean i cant access 3d eshop? I think i lost access after accessing eshop an when it set up.

    Do i require a linked account for online play? If i choose to an for apps? If so how do i bypass the issue with losing my games again? I want to keep them not lose em i mean theres no homebrew that restores licenses? Or something

    Nope. If you change accounts you cannot enter eshop without it removing any games not linked to the account. For online I believe you do as it requires you to log on. There aint no homebrew that does any of that. Gotta keep with not using eshop on alt

    Tbh im really surprised i mean i own alot of cfw game systems like ps3,psvita,Wii,i did used to own a wii u, 3ds but still what im quite surprised about is how the 3ds hacking scene works its a odd one an ill explain the ps vita has homebrew to reset licenses on downloaded games an owned ones if i delink a account to no longer use one it brings my licenses back, same goes for ps3,

    idk if its just me but im like really surprised tho how far the 3ds hacking scene came dont get me wrong im glad i can hack my 3ds but one thing that i do really sish existed was that one ability to restore licenses on a new account that im using, idk i guess ive grown accustomed to that with my other cfw consoles but the 3ds i was looking everywhere for it

    but i guess im shit outta luck with linking an account then it seems as you said indeed does happen an my games go poof gone basically till i relogin relink up resync eshop then i have to go into godmode9 an unlink my account so i no longer have an account linked die to that account being my primary account everywhere on nintendo consoles im not risking losing my switch games lol but still i do wish the 3ds could have that one ability i do admit tho the 3ds when installing games is a bit tricky even with gettin my 128sdcard to work with devmenu an bbm i literally had to sacrifice half of my storage which sucks lol i was forced to decrease the sd cards storage to 90gb in order for the apps to work otherwise when i boot em up i get an internal arm11 error an crashes my system tested also with my small sd card an it works so i decided to decrease storage i read an no issues very odd with those cia installers tho.

    If you dont care about if ya purchased the games or not. You could dump the ones you bought as a cia and install with FBI. Its one way that it makes the game not link to any account when used.

    You can use JKSM.
    http://github.com/J-D-K/JKSM/releases
    Back your games up often. As for your lost games, the easiest solution would be to find .cia files off the Internet. As links to such a site are illegal, I cannot say what they are but can confirm that they do exist, and are not terribly hard to find.

    but half of em dont work as in to install they just fail an i use devmenu only since fbi cant install big files i dont know why, i i also have BBM but i rarely use it, but i have no idea what to do anymore

    Since ive tried everything i can possibly think of i mean this is messed up on how my 3ds refuses to install some of these games an most of em are pokemonx,y,sun,moon,omegaruby,alphasapphire,ultrasun,ultramoon an supersmashbros3ds with dlc,an update data, like those all fail to install an also mario an luigi dreamteam,an browsers inside story,detectivePikachu i been trying to install an ive spent three days with this problem an still cant fix it ive tried numerous versions from numorous different websites an all do same outcome an dont install... Please help

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    An also yes i can install cia games ive done it with a couple its just these games I'm having major trouble with an now im lookin for help here an i have no idea what to do i heard getting python may increase the chances for the 3ds to install games but where can i find python an how can i install it? I've looked everywhere an no one has a tutorial ive also tried decrypt9 but booting from homebrew homebrew launcher doesnt boot shows black screen with nothing on it an goes to homescreen. so I don't know anymore on what to do really an i really need help.
