    Is there any way to recover from this? I intended on deleting the sysnand dbs but instead hit my emunand. My CIAs have disappeared and now it wants to repair my sdcard, formatting my data. I'd appreciate any leads on either restoring my CIAs or backing up the saves somehow.

    Again, the only thing that happened is that I lost the title.db and import.db from emunand.

    Does doing the repair change the encryption keys? Cause I thought maybe I could just install the CIAs and just copy over the title data. I realize this only would work if it doesnt.

    your only chance is to reinstall your CIAs and see if that keeps the save

    So I go ahead and do the reset, install the CIA, and copy over the .sav file?

    I have the SD card currently backed up.

    did you backup your SD before you deleted the title.db and import.db because then you can restore them.

    If not best bet is to install CIAs and see if the saves restore.
    if they do then reinstall all your cias then you can bak it up and do the reset
