    I let my nephew on my console in emuNAND mode using the camera etc. Some how all my CIA games and theme packs have been deleted, all my saves are still visible via BBB .3ds. I'm confused.

    I know that it happens if you go to data managment in sysNAND, not sure how it could happen in emuNAND.

    It was in Gateway mode I left him, but for I know could have gone back in to sysNAND. Also I'm not even signed in to be able to use eShop.

    He must have accessed data management in the console def whilst in SysNand. This deletes all your CIAs and the SAVES.

    true. but only if sysnand and emunand are linked. So question to OP: are they? Then that's most likely what your nephew did.

    I am unsure if they are linked, but they are on the home screen of both nands the cia games show. But says unplayable.

    You need to know if they are linked or not. You have some more reading to do.

    Did you enable parental controls before you handed your hacked console over to a child?

    then the sysnand and emunand are linked. You need to format sysnand in order to unlink them and avoid future hazards.

    My guess is that your nephew went into system settings/eShop while in emunand, kicking him back to sysnand and went into data management.

    From what I've heard, sysnand deleted the CIAs because they didn't have tickets not because they weren't legit. That's because you haven't unlinked your sysnand from emunand. You really need to think about doing that if you want to avoid this happening again.

    No, they only get deleted when sysnand and emunand are linked (i.e. both are using the same folder on the SD) and you enter data management in sysnand which will recognize all cias installed via emunand as invalid

    I can confirm to you that I enter the emunand data management all the time and no cias have ever been deleted.

    Thanks guys. Cleared things up for me. He won't be using my hacked console anymore :) no harm done by him as he didn't have a clue only being 5.

    Your choice but I would be fine handing a 5 year old my hacked console provided I had parental controls turned on and did just a little bit of training. I also wouldn't let a 5 year old loose on my PC logged in as Admin. :)

    That's true, I don't have any settings on as it's the first time his used it. Therefore I had no idea this would/could happen but now it has I am aware of what can happen.

    He's 5 and doesn't know better, but you don't really have an excuse to not unlink your emu and sys nand in the first place.
