    Is anyone else having a much slower running 3ds after 2.0b2? I did update emunand to 7.1 but it seems that overall my console has been really sluggish.

    I know entering emunand is slower....but I think this was to prevent it hanging on occasion

    By sluggish do you mean it's taking a long time to boot up - with a blue screen ;-)

    or do you mean the home menu is slow?

    or do you mean games run slow?

    Like overall slow, takes longer to open from sleep, longer to close tasks really

    Sounds like it could be the speed of your SD card, what class is it?

    You should probably buy a better SD card, the ones that come with the 3DS aren't that great.

    Its how emunand is. Your loading from the SD card which had much slower access times than the internal nand. So loading apps and waking up take a while longer and you'll see a black screen for a while.
