    So I bought a brand new 2ds with mario pre-installed and removed the sd card and put in a new one before installing rxtools.

    So I updated to 9.2 for themehax and formatted the sysnand to unlink the nands, now I wanted to know if I can get mario to show back up as the preinstalled game by putting the original SD back in?

    As the folder ids are now different If I use the original sd card it just recreates new management data and if I try copy over the data from the original folder and put it into the new folder it complains about it being corrupt.

    Anyway round this?

    Preinstalled games are installed in NAND iirc.

    Not sure that's the case, on the original SD I can see what can only be the Mario game a 600-700mb file, in the title folder.

    Well, you could try to use it with signpatch sysNAND or to download and reinstall the legit CIA.

    Yup. IIRC legit CIAs are packed with legit tickets too

    To get your pre-installed mario game back, you have to download it from the eshop, this means linking a NNID to sysnand
    Installing a downloaded legit CIA in devmode, from mario IS NOT 100% the same as having it redownloaded from the eshop!

    But for this time being, you can't redownload it in sysnand, cause eshop spoof does not work anymore with the eshop spoofer from smea's installer package

    So the only option is having it installed in emunand, since you unlinked nands, it's no use having it also reinstalled in sysnand (thus taking up the extra space)
    If there's a working eshop spoofer for 9.2 sysnand, then you can redownload it from the eshop if you link a nnid to your sysnand

    If you wanna do this all in emunand, that's easy :P
    Be sure emunand is 10.3, Link a nnid to your emunand and go into the eshop and redownload mario.

    How is a pre-installed game linked to the eshop? Or how could the eshop know that my 2DS came with a pre-installed game and allow me to redownload it via a NNID?

    The game is linked to your consoles serial.
    a Pre-installed game is tied to your console, not your nnid, but when a nnid is linked to your console, it knows, you have the right to redownload the game cause it was pre-installed on that console with the correct serial! that is now linked to your nnid, since nnid gets tied to your consoles serial etc...

    Thanks for explaining, I just installed it via devmode in rxtools in sysnand to the sd card, rebooted back to the unpatched sysnand and mario shows up and works with a supposed "legit" CIA.

    This way works, I know it's not exactly the same but best i'll get.

    I know it's not tied to any NNID as i've never connected, so in the future for instance if this console were updated and signed into the eshop, I could redownload the game via there as it'll have never been linked previously?

    Yes if you ever update the console to latest firmware, then link a nnid to it, you can redownload it from the eshop.

    Anyway, if you have emunand on 10.3 and have a nnid linked, go to the eshop and i bet you can redownload it from there to. But since you unlinked it will install the game in it's own 3ds folder tied to your emunand
    Keep in mind, when you do so, you don't have the same save on both sysnand and emunand
