    I am on part 4 of the guide and I just updated the emunand to 11.0.0 and then I backed it up. However, it's saying the size is (min size) 1240mb and i'm thinking,"uhh okay but my actual sysnand size is 1.8 gb and if I tried to restore the 2.1 unbricked emunand to the sysnand wouldn't that FUCK IT ALL UP since they are conflicting sizes??????????????

    Can someone help? I really don't want to brick, especially considering this isn't my own n3ds. It's my friend's and he trusts me with this since i set my own up. However this emunand size difference didn't happen with mine.

    Does it happen everytime you dump it?

    Because you selected min size, it basically won't backup all the empty space.

    Yes. I've dumped the emunand 3 times now. Each time it is 1240mb.

    No, I didn't select the min size option. I've been doing the very top option to backup emunand.

    If it's a valid dump from your emuNAND and you dumped it multiple times with the same result, then it will flash fine to your sysNAND.

    RedNAND uses minsize by default. This is normal.
