    What happens when you try to extract emunand with the tool?

    Use win32diskimager to clone you micro-sd card,then write the clone to the bigger one.

    The tool states it has found a wrong emunand partition size and fails out. The output file is very small. It's likely because it's looking for a emuNAND the size of an OG3DS, but the N3DS NAND is about 400-500MB larger in size.

    Ah I see...in the case then cloning the drive would probably work.

    Yeah I wish I thought of that last night but oh well. We all may have to live with two SD cards for the moment anyway until GW fixes the large SD issue with system updates. I was hoping to get 9.5 on my 64GB card, but I'll live with strictly CIA's on it for now and the latest firmware on my 4GB.

    OK it is working via Win32DiskImager.
    But is it normal that I have empty activity log after system transfer ? o.O
    EDIT:
    Not working, it kicks me back to sysnand (but gateway rom select menu is opening?!)
