    Hello, do any of you guys know a program for windows that backups and injects SX OS emuNAND hidden partition on the microSD card, like "emuNANDTool_1.0.3.exe" does for GATEWAY emuNAND on the 3DS. If yes then please give me a link, please.
    Thank you in advance.

    From memory, isn't the emunand just the files in /sxos/emunand? I don't recall it actually partitioning the micro SD like we used to on the 3DS. I'm fairly sure you can just backup those files.

    Ahh thanks for the info! I'll just stick with the old one since it seems far more convenient lol. Hope you can both find what you're looking for!

    It's either or, but having it on a separate partition should be less prone to corruption, as well as being somewhat faster. But yeah, it's a bit less convenient.

    Wow that got off topic quickly, I want a simpler method then now:
    -dump NAND (save it on PC).
    -create emuNAND (just cloning NAND from inner partition to hidden on microSD and change Nintendo folder to Emunendo).
    -factory reset NAND to separate the two.
    And after something goes wrong with emuNAND I need to do:
    -remove emuNAND (losing everything added after the NAND dump).
    -restoring dumped NAND.
    -creating emuNAND again!
    -factory reset NAND again!!
    -and add everything I lost in emuNAND again!!!
    A way to backup the emuNAND, and inject it would be a faster and simple way.

    The tool you are asking for does not exist.

    In that same thread someone linked the windows version of the tool used on linux/macOS, the commands should be similar.

    Oh now I see, but it still to complicated maybe SX OS 3.0 will have a emuNAND backup function, I'll wait, thanks.
