    I went to redownload four swords from the eshop and they only show up on emunand 9.4 but won't play. When I go back to 4.5 sysnand, the game isn't there, only on emunand.

    Your sysnand is unlinked from emunand. You won't be able to play it on your sysnand because you would have to update it before it will let you use eShop or relink it to an NNID that bought the game.

    I would have had told you just to flash emunand to your sysnand, but you already have it updated to 9.4, so obviously that would be a bad idea. About the only thing you can do is boot into gateway mode without emunand and install a CIA of the game to sysnand. Issue is, you won't be able to play it without being in gateway mode. So you're out of options unless you have a 9.2 or older emunand that you backed up that still uses the same NNID as your emunand. At which point you can just flash that back to your sysnand via the downgrade menu.

    Can't he do any of the following things?
    • flash a backup of a linked emunand using emunand tool
    • backup system nand, inject into emunand using emunand tool
    • format emunand anew

    Yeah he could relink nand by flashing a 9.2 or older version of his emunand to sysnand. That's if he backed it up before he updated it to 9.4. Otherwise he'll have to format sysnand and recopy it to emunand.

    Not sure why you'd want them relinked though. Issues arise from doing so. Like having to unwrap games/homebrew installed via DevMenu/BigBlueMenu/BigRedMenu and not being able to organize the icons (they would constantly reset due to interaction with sysnand)

    He wants four swords on sysnand. Can't he just:
    1. Dump sysnand
    2. Backup emunand
    3. Inject sysnand backup into emunand
    4. Update emunand to 9.4
    5. Download four swords
    I just tried that. I bought picross e on emunand, then did the process above. It didn't show up on sysnand :S

    Sorry for the bump, just a question if my sysNAND is linked to emuNAND and I download a game from e-Shop(yes I know that 9.6 is still not supported), will it be playable on both sysNAND and emuNAND ?And will the save file also be universal (Progress-wise) ?
