    I'm kinda new to this CFW thing. The problem is that my SD right now is only 4GB, and I need more space. Thanks.

    Yes, you can just copy and paste to another SD.

    yes, if you use emunand, you need to extract a backup, format the new sd card for emunand, and inject the backup. then move all the other files normally

    and of course don't format your previous sd card til you've tried the new one in your 3ds.

    If I used this as I guide, would it be considered EmuNAND? Sorry if it's a stupid question lol

    emunand is basically rednand, so if you followed part 3 of the guide, you have an emunand/rednand

    so 1. take old sd card
    2. open emunand9 tool and save nand.bin, eject old SD card
    3. copy that to the new SD card and inject it
    4. recover emunand from nand.bin
    5. copy and paste the rest of the old SD cards files to the new one

    right?

    yes, that is basically all you need to do

    in emunand9, there should be a nand backup, and nand restore option under emunand. Backup, backs up the emunand to a file on the sd card. once you transfer all the files to your new sd card, relaunch emunand, run emunand restore and restore the backup to emunand (after reformatting the sd card to support emunand)

    EDIT: saw that directly after post

    emunand. sysnand is stored on the device memory itself. emunand is stored on sd card.

    You only need to do this is you actually want to keep your EmuNAND, by the way. I ditched mine.

    It says,

    "EmuNAND not found on SD card.
    Backup EmuNAND to file: failed!
    Press B to return, START to reboot."

    depends on if you setup emunand or rednand, the bottom part of emunand9 should tell you.
