    Hi y'all!
    I'm an absolute noob who just got his hands on an a9lh system. Unfortunately my system is in Japanese and I have no clue what the heck is going on, so I've been wondering about the possibility of installing a US region-changed emunand. But, like I said, I've no idea how this stuff works. I've been researching for quite a while now. I believe someone mentioned that Plailect's guide works perfectly fine if you change all "sysnand" to "emunand", can anyone pls confirm?
    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your reply!
    That guide is exactly the one I was talking about.
    Why should I change my sysnand though? Isn't a region-changed emunand much safer and easier to work with?

    You can save some space on your SD Card :)
    If you create an emuNAND, your SD will lose 1-2GB for emuNAND Partition.
    So you can play some Custom Virtual Console (CVC) games easily with sysNAND.
    If you use emuNAND, you need to install CVC games twice on both NANDs to play => Lose more space :)
