    Ok so, my problem here is that I have an emuNAND setup on my 32gb sd. Yesterday I tryed to used 3ds.guide/ to get a CFW over my new SD (64gb). After a few moments I finished the step:
    Step 7
    The problem here was that I can't update somehow. So I plugged in my SD Card and accidently formated it. ( yes I know im dumb and don't ask me how I did this :mellow: )

    Now I can't start my 3DS from the 64GB card or any other card except the 32GB where all my Stuff is located (emuNAND). Now I don't wanna do something from here on because if I delete something on that 32Gb card my DS is fully bricked I guess?
    Can someone help me out so I can get other SD cards working again?:blush:

    You need to extract your emunand from the 32gb one and inject it into the 64gb one

    Ok that was my plan too but can you explain me how?

    edit:// before i've done the stuff on the 3ds.guide I was able to use other SD cards without any problem, so why did this change?

    You need arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your SD card.

    • Ok well, but why won't my ds start without any sd card?
    • Lets say, I'll start from the beginning from the 3ds.guide, I just have to add the arm9loaderhax.bin so my DS boot and then I can do all the steps?

    Don't start from the beginning. Just add arm9loaderhax.bin to your SD card and your console will boot. If you want to be able to boot without an SD card then you need to follow steps 7-12 on section VI in https://3ds.guide/installing-arm9loaderhax

    Put arm9loaderhax.bin on your SD card............
    In case you can't work out what I'm talking about you download it here https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/releases/latest

    This is linked on many of the pages of the guide.

    Yea I know but, the guide says I have to be on 2.1.0, but I'm on 9.2.0
    I'm sorry but I'm a noob with this "new" tutorial.. since i've done this a bit different for about 5 months lol

    Just put it on the root of your SD card. It is required to boot. If it says to put it on when you're on 2.1 that's because it's the first time in the guide that you need it. But you need it forever after. I won't repeat myself anymore, you can either put it on your SD card or not, it's up to you. But if you don't, your console will never boot again. As I already mentioned earlier, once you do that you can set it up so that the console will boot without an SD card.

    Well, I'm sorry for beeing an idiot but I fixed it. Thank you dude.

    Well nvm that, I copyed the arm9loaderhax.bin to the CTR NAND but I still can't boot without an SD cart.

    Okay I restored my NAND backup and im fine. Now I fixed it!
