Trying to upgrade to a bigger SD card, and after having no luck with simply cloning the drive, I read that this is because the EmuNAND partition is invisible to most apps, and that I should use GodMode9's backup/restore scripts instead.

Though I successfully backed up the SysNAND awhile ago, attempting to run the EmuNAND script results in the error: EmuNAND backup failed

Hope someone can help. Thanks.

EDIT:

I've now also tried emuNAND Tool and Multi EmuNAND Creator, neither of which were able to detect an EmuNAND on the SD card. What else can I try?

EDIT Again:

Ok, I used USB Image Tool to backup & restore the drive (then expanded the partition with Partition Wizard), and that seems to have successfully moved everything over. Problem solved for now.

Still curious why the backup failed though. Is this something I ought to have a backup of?

Oh, that's why it's not working. I do have boot9strap. Didn't realize they're mutually exclusive. I just went with the first thread google suggested. Thanks for clearing this up.

You can use EmuNAND with B9S. I have EmuNAND on 9.2 for hax installation and others for testing. Technically I use RedNAND, but I never had any issues. Might be an issue with GM9.
