    I have a 4 gig SD card and I want to switch to a 16 gig I formated the SD card using palex or something like that guide and copied all the files over.now when I use luma it boots back to homebrew or freezes.if I put the old SD card in it works just fine tho.is there a step I'm missing

    update:
    ok this works if you dont want to keep booting into menuhax
    and have emunand installed follow this guide
    https://plailect.github.io/Guide/installing-arm9loaderhax
    very quick took 10 minutes

    For the sd card fix do this
    download http://www.paragon-software.com/home/pm-personal/eshop.html
    and http://www.alexpage.de/usb-image-tool/
    here is a link to the guide i used
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-transfer-emunand-to-another-sd-card-working-on-new3ds.383684/

    this is the new way to transfer the emunand i couldn't get it to work tho

    Yup I also tried a regular format and a quick one
    It boots to the homebrew menu it's just luma that won't load I just tried a 32 gig SD card so I have no idea what the problem is

    Do I need to redo menu hacks or something I assumed a copy and paste would work

    You need to copy your emuNAND to the new card. The easiest way to do that is to backup it with emuNAND9, format your new card in emuNAND9 (using one click setup) then copy all the files over and restore the backup.

    Are you using an N3DS?

    imageUSB the 4GB SD to the 16GB SD, and then extend the partition to fill the card.

    Hold up - if you are using N3DS (*NEW* 3DS) you can upgrade to A9LH EXTREMELY easily. So you are definitely on N3DS?

    If you want to switch to A9LH (And I highly recommend it mostly just because it's so easy with N3DS), start here. It took about 10 minutes (give or take) for me to switch from menuhax to A9LH.
