    Can you rename a cia file to anything of your liking? I know it has to have the .cia at the end of the title, but will renaming cause any problems? I want to go into Blue menu and delete some files that aren't compatible with my system. I have no idea which is which though, because they're all code xD

    You can rename the cia, as long as it has the .cia filename on the end.
    As for deleting software, if it's installed, you can delete it by opening settings>data management>nintendo3DS>software

    Wouldn't doing that delete all other cias installed? It's better to use a cia manager such as FBI or BBM to remove user installed software.

    No, because it's like uninstalling something you downloaded from the eShop, you just delete the game/app that you don't want.
    i.e. I installed a pokemon emerald cia that didn't work so I just deleted it using the settings app.

    It's safe to do while in Emunand.

    Did it via emuNAND with good results. Thanks!

    What happens if you do it in sysnand? Some source I read said never to go into the 3ds software data management section or it would delete all CIAs installed.

    If your NANDs are unlinked, visiting Data Management in SysNAND can and will delete all your CIAs you have installed. It's pretty much advised to just visit Data Management in EmuNAND for obvious reasons.
    On the contrary, once I downgrade, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be the noob that accidentally does this. :gun::nds:

    Oh thanks! I unlinked my NANDs and I'm planning to emunand to 10.3 just so I can download my eshop games back. not sure if it's worth it, though. I do own the games afterall and can just install them by other legal means.

    Is there any way to check and make sure the NANDs are unlinked? I am almost positive mine are, but it'd be nice if there was a simple way to check. Installing something to nand, I guess, would let me know, because it would install in both sys and emu right?

    And yeah, i'll probably do it by accident too :wacko:

    So, what would you list as things that you certainly should not access Via emu and sys NAND?

    If you have 2 different folders inside the "Nintendo 3DS" folder on your SD card, they are unlinked. Once unlinked, the Software Management on your sysNAND and emuNAND won't touch one another.

    I copied the contents of my GATEWAYNAND SD card over to a bigger one, and even named it GATEWAYNAND. But for some reason, its not recognizing the emuNAND. I cant hold all of my games on a 4 GB card and wanna upgrade to 16 GB without having to redo the rxtools process again. Any help?

    Edit: I suppose I'm supposed to go to gateway's site and format my SD card there?

    Yep, format emunand on your new SD card using gateway's launcher.dat
    After that you should be good
    Also: use rxtools to make a backup of your current emunand so you can inject it into the new emunand
