    How do I do that? I've installed A9LH and both emunand9 & decrypt9 work when the appropriate buttons are pressed on boot. But I want to check if AuReiNand works aswell

    Try running a homebrew app, if it launches then you know you're in AuReiNand. Once you have AuReiNand's "arm9loaderhax.bin" file on the root, arm9hax will automatically boot up that bin file, which will be AuReiNand.

    Just like how Homebrew Launcher looks for boot.3dsx, arm9loaderhax looks for arm9loaderhax.bin

    Edit: You also need an aurei folder, with firmware.bin in it for your 3DS type (n3ds or o3ds)

    Try pressing select right after booting. You should see AuReiNAND configuration options ;)

    If you're not using bootctr9 or arm9select. It shouldn't even boot without aureinand arm9loader installed. You can try not holding any buttons and it should boot with sig patched. Easy way to check is try to launch any homebrew cia

    Depends on if you swapped emunand with sysnand already. I cant tell you if you need to unlink the two NANDs without knowing what steps you've done already. Did you create emunand from sysnand recently without using tinyformat to unlink? If so then yes need to use tiny format to unlink the two NANDs.

    One easy way to check if they're linked is to add a folder in emunand and see if it shows up in sysnand. Or arrange the icons differently, etc.

    I have a clean emunand (so I just created one with emunand9 after installing aureinand). When I go into system settings after AuReiNand boots up, it should say GW before the version right? Bc I don't see it

    Aureinand doesn't modify the version string. If you installed aureinand's arm9loader.bin into the root of your sdcard, then it should be bootint directly into emunand by default. You can confirm by holding select on boot and see if aureinand config shows up. (3.12 aureinand and above)

    Dont swap if you havent yet. Figure out your problem first. That db error looks like because you didnt launch eshop to initialize db. Try doing that first. It doesnt have to go into eshop, just launch it and refuse to update if prompted.

    Good, now figureout if the nands are linked and use tinyformat on one of them to unlink. (if you have nnid setup already you probably want to run tinyformat on sysnand). And then proceed to update emunand to latest 10.7 and enjoy using it. I wouldn't swap sysnand with emunand right away until you understand what that means and the pro and cons.

    My tutorial told me to turn on "Updated Sysnand Mode" but according to the AuReiNand official post:
    Does this mean I can delete emunand without harm? I only have a 4gb sd card so getting rid of emunand to free up 1gb would be great

    If that is what you want, yes turn on updated sysnand mode. You should however take a backup of 9.2 emunand after you swap the two and store it somewhere safe for when you need to run something using 9.0 firm.
