    There isn't a huge benefit to emuNAND anymore other than maybe a quicker restore/faster turnaround time for messing with things. Also out of region emuNAND and GW use.

    The easiest way is to make a NAND backup of your emuNAND. Then use D9 sysNAND restore option (Keep A9LH) and just flash emuNAND backup. Everything stays as it was.

    Between insane and insecure
    There's no reason to keep the emuNAND anymore. It's a waste space you can use for more games~
    Edit: I am so glad that my 12,100th post was spent shitting on emuNANDs

    probably at home
    I'd suggest using easeus partition to melt the one gb back to your regular partition. Correct me if I'm wrong because I don't use A9hl yet :P

    Any partitioning software worth it's salt can merge the two partitions without much extra work.
    If you have spare time and patience, just copy all the files off the SD to your PC and reformat the SD.
