    I have a question regarding the EmuNAND, I'm on EmuNAND 9.5.0-23U and wish to make a fresh format on the system(EmuNAND).

    So here's the question:
    If I format(Format System Memory) the EmuNAND via System Settings(not via Gateway Menu), will it format back to a fresh 9.5.0-23U or will it affect my SysNAND? Thanks so much in advance. :D

    Only the emunand, but backup your sd card content just in case.

    It won't touch sysnand as long as you're absolutely sure you were in emunand upon entering system settings

    So yeah, you'll get what you want!

    Just keep in mind that it unlinks emunand from sysnand so your home screen on emunand won't have any of the stuff installed on sysnand

    edit: oh yeah like the guy above me said you're gonna want to backup the SD card contents as it will probably wipe all of it which may include some of the games, apps, theme options, etc. you have on sysnand

    Wouldn't it be easier to just take out the SD card when performing the format ?
