    I just updated a 4.5 console to 9.2, yet I accidentally renamed the emunand and sysnand backups as the same name. The sysnand is 4.5 and the emunand was on 10.3 and cannot figure out which is what.

    Is there a way to check each file apart?

    If you have a hardmod, you can probably just bite the bullet and flash one of them to your system. You have a 50% chance of installing the 4.5 NAND. Otherwise, if you don't, keep both of them, name one that you'll flash, and if it happens to be 10.3, you can just downgrade to 9.2 and reflash.

    I was hoping to see if there was tool/app that could load the file and display a version number, etc.

    don't flash anything on your system, flash it on your emunand and you'll see ;)
    you won't find version strings cause the nands are encrypted..

    Make a backup of your current emunand then flash one to emunand to identify which is which. Then put your emunand back.

    Sorted it. The file labeled (2) was emunand 10.3. Don't do stuff when you have lack of sleep:P

    Maybe you could you know check the time created for the files etc and figure out which you put there first?

    Edit:nvm didn't see your above post

    Nah, to do that requires the decryption of the NAND. You could do that manually with the 3DS though, if you had the time. Good to see you had it sorted out though.

    if you remember which one you created first, you can sort by date created and you will know when each dump was created if the time is earlier.

    if you right click on a blank spot on the bar where the other categories are, you can add date created to it.

    Flash them to your emuNAND, that will keep your sysNAND safe and you can figure it out from there.

    Did you rename it with (1) and (2) or not? If not I'd say #2 is the 9.2. Since this kind of happens when you place two of the same objects in the same map without overwriting.

    Tbh, I can't remember, as I dumped the two files in the same folder and went to rename one of them, yet in a blink of an eye they were renamed (1) and (2) as in shown in the picture.
