    Did you even try GodMode9? You know that there is no writing to critical stuff without unlocking it via a button sequence and that there is warning for everything?

    I set up the "Bonus Drive". What next?
    What can I do with it and how do I get rid of it?

    It's a drive, put stuff on it. If you want to get rid of it, restore a nand.bin or zero out the bonus0x?????.bin file in virtual NAND.

    Is there way to create rednands without wipe sd card data? or multiple rednands on the same sd? (i can convert to emunand with emunand9).

    I'm trying to figure out how to create "emunands" on 10.7 nand (without gw or others methods limited to firmwares <9.2).

    Thanks.

    I was wondering, if we had a 1.8GB NAND, would it be possible to have an Emunand in the unused part of the NAND?

    No, that's too small.

    I am seeing "8: BONUS DRIVE / IMGNAND TWLN" in the readme, says that the home menu can format it. How does one even set that up? What can it be used for outside of GODMODE9? I've got a n3DS XL if that helps at all.

    Yes, even for a CTRNAND.

    It's in the readme, "You may set up the bonus drive via the HOME menu on 3DS consoles that provide the space for it.". If the option doesn't turn up for you, your console doesn't have that extra space in NAND. Currently I don't know of any software that would provide access to this memory or even use it in any way, so this is useful for GM9 only, as some kind of on device storage. Maybe other's will follow suit and this drive will be more useful in the future.

    Just found that this became a part of the A9LH setup. I honestly use these programs (by these, I mean Decrypt9WIP) to make dumps of game carts, so I'll stick with Decrypt9WIP. It's much more familiar to me.

    I do have the option, figured that meant Nintendo's home menu. Explains why I couldn't find it.

    How would one go about accessing the drive? About what precent of 3DSes have it?

    Thanks for the great software.

    My N3DS has an additional ~600MB of space after the end of the actual CTRNAND. There are consoles that have even more. O3DSes always have very little to no additional space, and about N3DS / 2DS, just an elaborate guess, but newer consoles are more likely to have mroe space. And, well, as I said, only GM9 can access it right now. You can also dump it and access via OSFMount on PC.

    I'll just look at your implementation then, might make some sort of POC.

    Is there anything that Decrypt9 does that this still doesn't do? I remember that you posted a list on the subredit for version 1.0, and a couple of things on it kept me from switching.

    Can you turn off system update notification to?

    This is the list (for the most recent nightly):

    If you can live with that, use GM9 over D9. Most likely the last release will be enough for what you need, too.

    Short answer: GM9 can do basically everything. But you need to find a tutorial on how to do it.

    Well I tried but haven't found a tutorial, yet.
