    How to update your 3DS emuNAND firmware version without connecting to the internet

    Here's a small guide on how to update your emuNAND firmware with .a .cia format update pack reather than connecting your 3DS console to the internet.


    A 3DS console with an emuNAND partition

    A Gateway flashcard or a 3DS console running a CFW ie. rxTools etc

    DevMenu or BigBlueMenu on either your Gateway card or installed on your CFW internal SD card

    An internal SD card


    Always install a higher firmware than your console is already on, you can downgrade your firmware but you need to follow a different method.

    Make sure 100% you are updating the emuNAND of your console.

    Always use the correct model version & region update pack for your console

    Never update a N3DS emuNAND over 9.5

    1. Download the correct firmware pack for your console from our CIA Format Updates section here - http://3dschaos.com/threads/mset-4-...-all-regions-11-1-packs-added-16-10-2016.446/

    Make sure you download the correct region pack for your console & for the correct system

    O3DS = 3DS/3DS XL/2DS

    N3DS = New 3DS/New 3DS XL

    2. Connect your internal SD card to your computer & load the whole "update" folder onto the root of your SD card

    3. Eject your SD card from your PC & put it back into your console.

    4. Turn your console on & boot into emuNAND mode either with the DS exploit or internet exploit.

    5. Launch DevMenu or BigBlueMenu.

    6. Move over to the "Import" tab & scroll down to the "update" folder & open it.

    7. Press L+R+A to install all files in the folder.

    8. After all files have installed your console will re-boot & when you next boot into emuNAND mode you will be on the higher firmware version.
