    So, I've never used emunand before. I'm on a dirty sysnand and i want to do some "experiments" on my oldest, clean backup.
    If i understood correctly, using this tool i should be able to create an emunand on any sdcard directly from my backup. Is that right?
    Do i need to do anything on the system or sd card prior to using this program? Also, i'm pretty sure that the original backup was on ofw 4.1 without exfat support... How should i prepare my card for that to work?

    Thanks for the help!

    How big is your partition size? Make sure is equal too or bigger than the nand file sizes your copying.

    You can check it with a software called MiniTool Partition Wizard

    Yeah you can pretty much use any backup nand you created previous or newer to any sd card you want too just make sure you got enough space before attempting cuz it'll create a new partition in the sd card that takes up partial of the main storage size.

    To use Emunand with SXOS you have to create a non partitioned empty space of 29GB at the beginning of the SD card, every other partition must start after the 29GB empty space. So the first partition on SD have to start after 29Gb, than you can use Emutool to copy your backup on this empty space setting sxos as target (remember to activate Partition Emunand after restore is finished).

    Ciao!

    Does it work with a resized emuNAND? I am getting error:
    [​IMG]
    (Watch the statusbar to see it didn't fail at the beggining). I started it as Administrator.

    Can you add support for smaller/bigger emuNAND? Thanks in advance.

    No, sorry. It works only with standard image size.
    At the moment I suggest you to do a copy with a tools like win32diskimager and then expand the Fat partition with a partitioning tool like Minitool Partition.

    I'm trying to find the time to correct bugs and add features, but I'm not able to.
    If someone have some spare time, let me know.

    Ciao!
