    So i've been to see an hardmodder in some place, (Somebody accidentaly updated sysNAND so i went to him ) he told me that the data and game CIA's dlc's ( all emuNAND ), that i could have installed will be wiped out, even if the emuNAND data still in SD card.
    Is that true?

    I guess so ? ô_o
    Since I can't think of any other way to recover the emuNAND files
    To be honest I kinda put myself in the same position as you yesterday. :rofl2:

    Oh it should be a bad shock :c
    I mean if i have the long letters and numbers folder is there anyway to use it?
    I also have an emu backup but i backed it up when i just created the emuNAND (and not sure games are recovered with emu backup..)

    If the backup is from the same emuNAND as the last one you used you should be able to get your files back since you still have your folders with many letters and numbers
    Just don't format your SD Card and backup your files and when your 3DS is repaired, restore the backup with Decrypt9 :)

    Well if all you said is good,i'll have back my games! (I felt bad each times i saw a fire emblem wifi battle video in my TV's youtube :( )
    Let's hope the hardmod works nice (though i won't be doing it this week not enough time )

    Keep your SD card that has your games and emunand in a safe place, send the 3ds for repairs using the 4gb sd card it came with. When you get the 3ds back, get back on 9.2, and stick the sdcard back in. launch your cfw/emunand and you should be back where you started.

    The emuNAND and hardmod are completely seperate. Even if he uses emunand's NAND for hardmodding, you only lose data if your emunand is on 11.0.

    By which case, you can still downgrade with the hardmod.

    Though my emuNAND is on 11.0 i don't think it would be used for hardmod though..
    But as Gold_Up said if i still have my emuNAND data folder and my nand backup,all should be fine right?
