    Hello !

    I've got one question about unlinking NANDs.

    I've got about 14 games installed with brazilian method BEFORE the installation of redNAND and who are working on redNAND.

    So before my sysnand dump.

    and one after my installation of redNAND, and installed by sysNAND.

    Obviously this one is not working on redNAND.

    If i unlink my nand, will pre-rednand installed game will still working onto rednand ?

    AFAIK unlinking makes all your currently installed games unplayable.

    So why games installed before rednand are still working in rednand ?

    And the one installed the same way but post rednand doesn't ?

    Probably because the ticket is missing from redNAND.
    Some data is shared between sysNAND and redNAND because it's stored on SEEPROM. If you unlink the NANDs the unique ID (which is stored in SEEPROM) is changed on both NANDs and no longer matches the unique ID the games are linked to. Therefore none of the games will work anymore. At least that's what I've gathered from reading forum posts.
