    Hi,

    I Am New with CFW and now running B9S with Luma 8.1.1. Is it okay that i am using my EmuNAND? And also, Is it okay to have My SysNAND as 9.2 and my EmuNAND as 11.5?

    Thank You..


    P.S. New Here At The Forums. :)

    You can do that if you want but it will cause you issues and has no advantages (unless you want to change the region of the emuNAND so you can run two different regions on the same console).

    And welcome!

    Thanks for the Reply Quantumcat :)

    Was Wondering what are the advantages and disadvantages of using EmuNAND instead of SysNAND?

    • You have to install DSiWare and GBA games on sysNAND as well for them to work on emuNAND
    • If your SD dies you lose all your data (i.e. if you don't want to lose your data you have to make a backup of emuNAND regularly)
    • You lose 1-2GB SD card space
    • If your console's SD slot stops working you lose access to your data
    • There are all sorts of unexpected behaviours/problems that can be troubleshot (eg NNID problems) but since sysNAND-only is the norm, less and less people will know how to help you. Even if your problem is not caused by having an emuNAND it will discourage people from helping you since there is a chance it's caused by something they don't have experience with.
    There are no real advantages to having emuNAND - you can restore a sysNAND backup as easily as an emuNAND one, and B9S is installed to sysNAND always so you aren't getting a clean/unmodified sysNAND.

    Yes you can follow https://3ds.guide/move-emunand
    You might like to first make a backup of your emuNAND and SD card contents (I think the guide doesn't make you do this) so you can guarantee losing no data (if something goes wrong).

    I don't think so. And both show as 11.5 U on System Settings

    Need help here. I've not long ago updated my O3DS from A9LH to B9S. I then updated to the latest FW. Roms load OK but each time I try and use the likes of NTR or even enter homebrew, my 3DS crashes. I get the error seen in the photos. Is there any way of fixing this? If so, any help and advice with this will be very much appreciated.

    You still have to accept the firmware update, so just decline it.

    I searched on CIANgel as saw Samus Returns is available. Am I dumb and this was just a video or something? It doesn't release till Friday, is it safe to download?

    Seems weird to me since I could never find Hey! Pikmin and had trouble finding Miitopia and people would say wait till someone adds it to the keys site and that was weeks after release. I didn't know games could even release early in this way so it seems to good to be true.

    I am planning on getting a physical copy of Metroid anyway because I want it but it's tempting to start playing early if it's safe.

    11.5 is as easily hackable as 11.4 so you can just let it update. And as @Walo said, you can always choose to not let it update.

    As long as the Title Id and encryption key exist (and are correct) a .CIA can be downloaded from the CDN using that info as long as it's available on the server regardless of release date. You still can't play it until the encryption seed is released however, and that will not happen until release day. So think of it like a pre-load.

    Hi,
    I got b9s and want to install cias on my 3ds. The most games worked without a problem. Some games were installed but when I started them the screen went black and a few moments later I was back in the home menu. Tried different sources for the cias now every game works except monster hunter stories, its always the same black screen and then im back in the home menu. Is there a trick or is this a problem with monster hunter stories?

    No, once it is hacked it is hacked. And 11.4 has less ways to hack than 11.5 (11.5 can use DSiWarehax, 11.4 only hardmod and ntrboot) so you should just update.

    Hold Select on boot and see what Luma version it says you have.

    May be a stupid question, but does the NTR CFW for screen capture work on New 2DS console, or does it have to be a 3DS version?

    Ok so the transfer process has been a complete disaster.

    First things first. I realized that console region also included the country you set your profile as so that was quickly fixed and was able to move things along. I wasn't able to pick the "essentials" wireless transfer since the 4 GB SD card was still too small to receive the data, so I had to choose the "via PC option". It transferred a some system data through wireless and prompted me to manually transfer the SD files. I moved the data from the n3DS 4GB card back onto the old 64 GB card since I had a few save files I wanted to carry over, but since it offerred to overwrite some files, I only moved what wouldn't overwrite anything.

    Supposedely, even though any games downloaded would need to be redownloaded, the previous save file would have been transferred over and allowed me to continue where I left off. I tried with two games I redownloaded and it had no save files. I went to Manage Data from the 3DS Settings and while it found no save files, it had all my GBA Injects greyed out and with a small cross to them.

    I then tried opening my friend list since I'd assume that at least carried over and it said there were no Miis created and I had to do that first. That weirded me out bad and put the original 4 GB SD card back on and it also had no Miis or friendcode.

    So I basically transferred my emunand system but now I can't access anything from the old system onto the new one. Plus I ended up having to reformat my old system.

    So a few questions.
    First, what exactly happened and how can I salvage at least some of my old account. On SD > Nintendo 3DS, There's 3 system folders, one with today's date which is where I think the save files from the old one should go or something.
    Second, Could I technically restore my old emunand on my console? It seems to be on a clean 9.0 now. I think I

    Edit: My eshop data (funds, redownloadable content) is on the system itself. So that's something I guess.

    Snooping around https://3ds.guide/move-emunand I figured this could be what may be the issue. But a few peculiarities arose and I really don't want to screw up.
    On the first step regarding DSiWare, on SYSNAND TWLN -> title, instead of a folder 00030004, there was a 00030005 and 0003000f folders. (no biggie I thought and did the same copy over to 0:/gm9/out”
    Then on step 4 "Move Emunand to sysnand" things weren't not compatible at all. First, there's no [E:]Emunand Virtual option but there is a [S:]Sysnand Virtual folder, which also has a nand.bin file. When I select 'NAND image options', instead of "Restore SysNAND (safe) I get "mount image to drive", "update embedded backup" and "verify file".
    Since that was very different, I decided to ask here what might be the issue but it's so confusing...
