    I'm actually thinking about just forking my own 3ds-multinand and making something like "nx-multimmc" or something like that.

    I remember you gave me the idea for the name back then. :rofl2:

    This was the solution, lol. Now i'm all done and booted into atmosphere like normal, is there any way to tell if i did it correctly? Also, is it safe to turn AutoRCM back on without corrupting my sysnand?

    Well change the theme and switch console name, reboot to sysnand and see if it persists, I left my sys white and emu black

    i think it best way
    Go to SX website > download their latest boot.dat > copy to the root of your SD
    Download payload.bin for activating payload via your chosen tools

    SX OS Bootloader Menu
    > Options
    > EmuNAND
    > Create EmuNAND
    > Hidden Partition on microSD

    You will get "successfully done"
    Go to Atmosphere GitHub and download the latest release 0.9.0 and extract all files/ folders to the root of your SD

    Create > emummc folder on the root of the SD

    Create > emummc.ini file inside of emummc folder

    Copy and paste this to emummc.ini

    [emummc]
    emummc_enabled = 1
    emummc_sector = 0x2
    emummc_nintendo_path = Emutendo


    all we need for Atmosphere emummc
    Emutendo = Nintendo rename after > Create EmuNAND

    Don't use SX OS's method as it creates it as the first partition and isn't always stable, it's better to manually create the partition for AMS, if you're using SX OS then sure; if you have nothing to contribute to this thread but that then I suggest you open a new thread for your method; SX OS method for me just crashes after 1st boot.

    I’m having trouble creating the emummc.bin file. Whenever I try to create it in the command prompt (I’m on Windows btw) it creates a 1kb file for the emummc.bin file, which doesn’t seem right to me.

    Thanks for the guide. I think I understand every step except finding the first sector of the emuNAND partition using gparted. Where exactly does gparted display the sector information, specifically, the first sector?

    Make sure you have enough disk space and you're creating it using BOOT0/1 and your roughly 30GB rawnand bin, it's not finding the rawnand bin

    Right click the EmuMMC partition in Gparted > properties and it'll be there.

    I like it better this way. The emuMMC partition is set up as the first partition. If later you upgrade to a bigger microSD card you can simply clone it and then just expand your FAT32 partition, where if you already have your emuMMC at the end it'll be trickier.

    Just wondering, is there anything less stable about having the emuMMC partition at the beginning of the SD card?

    It messes with the switch somtimes if something gets changed, the switch looks at the first partition for the norm storage; that's why I don't reccomend it; you can easily upgrade from my way aswell; just use dd to out a image of your EmuMMC and then do ya stuff and write the image back on.

    I just want to make the simplest way for everyone I personally believe that SX is quite a quality in creating Emunand
    and atms can use it easily

    Yeah if you're using SX OS, this is EmuMMC for AMS, first partition can cause issues if it's set for emuNand if things change; I understand where you're coming from but this method is bullet proof.

    So I found the problem is when I ran the sector # through google to convert it to hexadecimal, it added 0x in front of it. I took it off and it worked.

    I don't see anyone else commenting on this, so maybe it's just me, but I'm having a hard time reading the black on dark gray text.

    An unrelated question: will it be possible to create an emummc from our existing "dirty" nand while restoring our clean backed up pre-modding nand to the system? Or is it necessary to erase everything on the SD and create an emummc from scratch?
