    Sure, you just sort-of do the process in reverse. Dump the save. Restore to cart with the ROM loaded in GW. Rename the file manager's new .sav file to the title ID of the ROM.

    and card 2 games it recognizes and writes inside the rom instead of making a save file?

    Yes. It recognized it going the other way, after all.

    No problem. If you think of anything else, feel free to ask. Though if it's about the AIO it might be best asking on that other site since I don't have a thread here for it yet. Oh and, nice avatar. Samurai Champloo is one of my favorites.

    Yeah the anime is one of the best :D. One question i thought of still, is it possible to buy a bigger sd card later and somehow mirror the complete partitions of the sd card (sysnand and emunand) to a bigger one without hassle? so nothing gets lost and i can just plug in the new sd card and everything works as before?

    Yes, simple backup and restore with B9S (or god name thing app - already forgot name of it)
    Then move all sd stuff to new sd

    Well, SysNAND is on the actual system, so, all you really need to backup when upgrading cards is the EmuNAND and the card's contents. Of course, you would have to format EmuNAND on a new card first, so you'll have the partition to restore it to. Godmode9 doesn't currently have restore scripts (I've been working on getting some approved by d0k3, and I'm planning to include them in R6), but an easy way to restore an EmuNAND for the moment is to mount the backup and copy "nand_minsize.bin" from the I: drive to the E: drive.

    Wait, what? But I restore it before...
    Maybe it was not Godmode9 but hourglass

    oh ok. so then i really dont care that much. i dont have anything special on emunand since they are linked so i can just put in a new sd, start gateway mode with pressing b while booting, format a new emunand and everything is as it was before, after i synced the tickets again?

    also with the syncing of tickets, its syncing and not overwriting right? so no harm if i click sync from emunand to sysnand even though i only installed stuff in sysnand and not emunand?

    Yeah, it was probably Hourglass9 or Decrypt9. Those have easy restore features where you just select the file. But I think we're close to getting the restore scripts finalized. Just a few extra safety precautions have to be added to prevent unnecessary brick risks.

    Keep in mind that GW will use your SysNAND to format EmuNAND -- it will be on 11.5. You can always downgrade it of course, if that's easier for you than restoring a backup. It might even be faster.

    Synchronize technically just means making both copies identical. It's just copying one ticket file over the other (maybe one day we'll have advanced database editing, but, probably not anytime soon). If you copy your EmuNAND tickets to SysNAND after installing to SysNAND, you just lost the tickets for everything you installed. So make sure you pick the right one.

    does it work to go into the systemupdater app in sysnand and then downgrade the emunand or how would one downgrade emunand while not being able to go into emunand to run the software? i cant remember if the sysupdater gave me the option which nand to update/downgrade..

    Luma can boot your EmuNAND. Just hold L. Then you can downgrade it.

    oh how is that? so while booting holding l will bring me into my gw emunand via luma? i realise there is more complicated stuff happening in the background than i thought :D

    Luma has the option to boot up to 4 EmuNANDs. It has for a while. It uses L to boot whichever option you don't pick for the default (L + a d-pad direction will pick a specific one, if it exists, if not, it will run the first one). That's why I didn't place any hotkeys on that (nor select, so that you can configure Luma). Cakes supports 4 too that matter. Skeith appears to support up to 10. Not that I've tested it. The only way to create 10 would be manually via "dd" in Linux (or a similar low level copying tool for Windows, or a hex editor that can write to raw partitions). Besides, just imagine how much time it would take. ReiNAND currently boots EmuNAND by default (hold start for SysNAND). Though when version 6 hits, you'll hold R for EmuNAND or provide a zero byte file to make it the default. For now it only sees the first one. Still, another option you could use.
