Unfortunately due to the stupidity of Nintendo's design team, you'll have to unscrew the battery lid off the n3DS so you can take out the MicroSD card and extract the emunand partition using the emunand tool so that you can inject it into your new MicroSD card. You have to setup emunand again with gateway menu on the new card first though. Then you can use emunand tool to inject the emunand you extracted from the other card. You need a PC with an SD/microSD card reader to do this FYI. One reason why you have to physically remove the microSD card from your n3DS. Which is a bit of a chore for the n3DS unfortunately. :P

Get emunand tool. it's in a thread not too far from the same section of the forum you posted this thread in. Use that to extract the emunand from your 4gb microsd card. Then setup emunand on the 32GB card using Gateway's menu. Then take that out and put it into your PC and use emunand tool to inject the file overwriting the emunand Gateway created. Voila! You transferred emunand to a new card. :D

    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
