    Hi folks. I'm new here and new to 3DS hacking in general. I used Plailect's guide to setup LumaCFW and A9LH on an O3DSXL. Everything is working fine and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. However, I have some lingering questions, mainly Do's & Don'ts now that I have everything up and running.

    For instance, one of the last steps of the guide was updating my firmware once everything was installed. Can I continue to upgrade my firmware, or should I stay away from official updates? Can I use the eshop for legit downloads? What happens if I use the "Download" option on a game's main menu if the game was installed from a .cia?

    I've made backups of everything, including my sysnand. My main concern is bricking my system by doing something I shouldn't. I've been tinkering with some of the options in the homebrew menu and FBI, so any tips or cool things I can do that I may not know about would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance!

    Yep if your sure a9lh is all correctly installed and your using latest luma then it is safe to update. You can still use eshop normally (you have to be on latest firmware to access eshop) if you've installed a CIA from your region it will show purchased in eshop not download.

    Thanks for the info. Usually my google fu is pretty good, but I was having a hell of a time finding anything specific.
