    I am thinking about transferring my Gateway EmuNAND to a larger capacity mSD card (Currently using 8GB mSD in my N3DS). Anyway, what are my options as far as card size and how to transfer EmuNAND? I know there is a sticky guide on here and I briefly looked at it, but concerned about the graphical glitch where it won't display GW in front of the Firmware version on EmuNAND... What do you guys think on how I should proceed? Thoughts/help appreciated :)

    1. Create a new emuNAND on the new SD card (put launcher.dat on it, go to the Gateway menu and choose format emuNAND)
    2. Use emuNANDTool to backup the emuNAND on your old SD card
    3. Use emuNANDTool to restore the backup to the new SD card
    4. Copy all files from old SD card to new SD card

    Done :-)

    Wow, thanks :)
    Where do I get the emuNANDTool?

    Update: I found the EmuNANDTool, but page says I need a hard-modded 3DS to use? I am confused...

    You can also use OTPHelper, Emunand9, and any other NAND backup programs.

    Try https://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-tool-release-and-support-thread.359239/
    I like emuNANDTool since it's really easy to use. You put your SD in the computer, run the program, and select restore or backup. If you choose backup you get asked where you want to save it, if you choose restore you get asked where you want to get the backup from, and that's it. Other programs could be independent of computers though, and you might like that better.

    Ok, after I format EmuNAND and everything, how do I go about updating it? Is it still safe to update EmuNAND and also use Gateway?
    Also, when I put the new mSD card in my N3DS, it gave a message saying "Could not detect a microSD Card. The software on the microSD Card could not be displayed". What do I do?

    I am formatting EmuNAND now and was going to update it after. Before I update, is 10.7 still the latest FW? Wanted to confirm that before I go through update... Thoughts/help appreciated :)
