Do AGBSAVE, TWLN and TWLP partitions need to be moved over?

    I installed A9LH a few weeks ago and followed an old guide to transfer over the emunand to sysnand. At the time, it was only suggested that I should transfer over the CTRNAND partition to emunand and that did the job. To be more specific, I swapped the CTRNAND from my 10.7 emunand to my 9.2 sysNAND and vice-versa. I now have 9.2 emunand (with just the CTRNAND) and 10.7 sysnand with just the CTRNAND.

    The newer guides are suggesting I should transfer over AGBSAVE, TWLN and TWLP as well. Will it hurt my sysnand setup if I do not have these installed?

    Also given that I have played plenty of games from the time I installed A9LH, is it still safe to copy over these NANDS now? Or will doing so mess up my save files etc.

    I've added a bit more context in the opening thread.

    Just to clarify, it would be safe (and wiser) for me to transfer these partitions over to my sysnand?

    all the twl/agb stuff on ur 10.7 nand is still 9.2 from what i have read(and why it becomes an issue) and the 9.2 emunand still has the 10.7 files. all the twl/agb stuff has to do with is gba and dsi ware. so that would be the only things that could get messed up

    Thanks. I'll make backups of everything and then transfer the NANDs over. I feel a lot safer knowing I have a9lh installed

    Just a bit of explanation:

    If you don't transfer the TWLN and TWLP partitions, you'll have outdated partitions and won't be able to play any DS games (even legit carts).

    AGB_SAVES don't need to be transferred, but you may loose save games if you don't.

    I did not transfer TWLN and TWLP partitions, only CTRNAND.

    I don't have issues to play nds games or everything else, it may be related to the fact that I had linked nands at the time?

    That could be. Did you ever update your system normally since then?

    Yes I did, but at the beginning I did not update and did not have any issue. Right now I'm running 10.7 sysnand. (when I switched, I switched my 10.X emunand with 9.2 Sys)
