    So I managed to get the 3ds all ready and it works. Since changing themes removes a lot of stuff, I wondered, can I go to the themeshop and download the themes I already purchased? Or does going to the shop mess with the hax as well?

    If your NANDs are unlinked then you can safely change the theme on emunand

    I dont know what unlinked nand means. Is it risky to try out checking the theme shop? If not ill just check it out because I have no clue what you're saying means :P

    it means just formating your nand or emunand in the seding so that wen your in nand mode the data in your sd card dont get shared with your emunand

    Your nands are linked most likely if you are asking this question. You just need to format your sysnand and you will be all set.

    The sysnand is the one on 9.2 right? The one where I hold the a button to manage? Sorry for ignorance.

    So just to be clear. I can remove the sd card from the 3ds, turn it on, go to sysnand, format the sysnand right? The person who helped me with the hax told me to never switch on the 3ds without sd card, but apparently its okay to do that?

    Btw thanks alot funnystory I appreciate it. One last question, are there any cons for unlinking them? I imagine if you wanna keep your firmware on 9.2 you shouldnt really care about your stuff being on that firmware since u cant really do much with it. But maybe im missing something

    I havent started yet. Thanks for the advices
    Actually no, now that i've looked at it, which leads me to believe i may have already formatted it.

    I actually already used tinyformat alltho im not sure if it was for sysnand format. I do know that when I did, sysnand was allnew starting from the introduction. Does that mean that im already set and may not have to go through the steps in this thread?

    if you did the setup process for sysnand then you've unlinked them.

    Aight cool. So can I just download the themes now from the themeshop, and also activate the themes through the official theme menu? Or do I use the themes through chmm2?

    you can use the theme shop on emunand if it's the latest (10.5). you can also use CHMM2 for custom themes.
