    Hi,
    After over a year of use, for some reason my GW emuNAND doesn't boot anymore
    Before that, I used freeShop and downloaded Metroid Prime Blast ball, and at the end of the download it gave me an error and also the 3DS black screen with "An Error Occourred" and now I can't return to GW mode emuNAND
    What can I do about this?

    I don't have a backup.. How do I reformat it? Just format the SD card?
    Because I really don't want to do that, it's more like the last option I would take

    go into the gateway launcher menu and go over to the format option your sd card will not be formatted only the emunand

    OK
    Will it delete saves, downloaded titles and CIAs installed or only the emuNAND itself? Because last time I did it it formatted the entire SD

    It will delete all saves, downloaded titles and cia and give you a new emunand.

    Sysnand will be fine though.

    Well it kinda sucks
    Can you explain me how do I find Metroid Prime Blast Ball title on SD card on PC and delete it? Maybe it'll help

    Doubt it, but if you want to try - copy the nintendo 3ds folder to your computer, and then delete it from your sd card.

    Then try to boot emunand. If it doesn't boot, then deleting that game did no good - because that's where it's stored.

    Find the title ID on http://3dsdb.com and look for it on the SD card in SD:\Nintendo 3DS\<ID0>\<ID1>\title\00040000\ folder.

    Blast Ball doesn't exist on this database :(

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    OK I kinda found the only possible option for this by looking on web for it's size and looking for the last modified date and I deleted it and it doesn't help at all

    Just to make sure, the one you deleted was 00040000\00175300? That's the EUR Blast Ball according to the title key site. Other regions don't seem to have the title key uploaded.
