    So, Whenever I try to backup my Emunand on Godmode9, it would say "Emunand Backup Failed". Is there any way to fix this?

    Basically, my DS is starting to break, and, by backing up my Emunand, I could Restore my games and saves. I basically might get a new one. I'm trying to Backup my EMUnand so I don't lose everything.

    I can't-

    My Circle pad, Buttons, Touch screen, and Directional pad don't work unless I access my mods.

    This can be caused by a faulty touchscreen. When there is some dirt in between the edges and the touchpanel, the digitizer "thinks" some point is permanently pressed down. When permanent touch input is detected, the buttons are disabled in the Home Menu (not in GodMode9 though).

    Possible reasons:
    • As mentioned: Dirt. Carefully clean the edges. Do not use metal objects!
    • A screen protector. Even if it has been on the screen without problems for some time… It may have moved a tiny bit and cause the issue. If there is a screen protector, try removing it.
    • Defective digiziter. Replacement is some work. I do not know if the 2/3DS systems boot to the Home Menu without digitizer. It might be worth a try to disconnect the ribbon cable. Maybe the console works without touch input (good enough for backing up games and saves!)
    As long as using GodMode9 works, it should be possible to backup all needed data for using on a different system.
