    No matter what i try, i can't restore my emunand.bin or nand.bin. I get the error "No usable file found" even though it acknowledges that there are a nad.bin and emunand.bin on my sd card. I bricked my emunand, and i have a restore from right before i installed a9lh, which was a few days ago. I accidentally restored my 2.1 bricked emunand when installing a9lh on another 3ds, since the wrong sd card was inserted (long story). I figured maybe it would have something to do with me unformatting and re-formatting my sd card, but then why can't i restore my nand? I'm so confused and i have no idea what is going on. Please dont tell me i have to format my emunand. I'm figuring that's all i can do now.

    I'm also having an issue like this. "No usable file found" when trying to restore to emunand. Ended up taking the SD card out and putting it in a non a9lh n3ds just to use the gateway emunand formater. For some unknown reason the PC emunand tool won't recognize a emunand9 formatted emunand.

    ok now i'm really embarrassed. I was using the most up to date versions of Emunand9 and Decrypt9, so i assumed a month-old version of otp helper would be the same. I was wrong. RIP me. Please take this down.
    Right!? OTP helper doesn't care as much so i use that.
