    Guys I have a 9.2 sysnand and a9lhax installed. How do i go about wiping emunand and only having a sysnand that i can then start fresh and install a new emunand. Am i stuck as i have a9lhax installed?

    I messed my 3DS up bad and i can boot to sysnand and emunand but i want to wipe everything, including nand and sd card, and start clean with a a clean 9.2 sysnand and a clean 10.6 emunand with fbi installed, all while keeping A9LH, I can't boot into decrypt9 or similar on emunand as i get red screen :(

    You'd think mate. I think you press L&R at boot but I just get a black screen.

    He said X, not L&R...

    If you followed the guide written by Plailect, decrypt9 should boot when you hold X while booting.

    If it doesn't make sure the Decrypt9WIP.bin is in your a9lh folder.

    I forgot to quote you, sorry lmao.

    Anyway, X button was for cakes as Plailect's guide was using cakes until recently.

    Do u have access to enter FBI or HBL? U can try enter drecypt9 by other ways besides the bootmanager.

    I have a sysnand on 9.2 that Aurienand thinks is an emunand so have to autoboot the 10.6 emunand using the sysupdate flag file.
    I can get into HBL on my weird setup booting sysnand and going through browserhax but get a red screen on decrypt9 and emunand9, to be honest I just want to start again but keep a9LH as not sure I can now remove it. Before all this. I restored my 9.2 sysnand to emunand as I messed up my perfectly working autobooting 10.6 emunand

    I got really confused by what actually u have now. So, after all this dumps and restores do u have a Sysnand 9.2 flashed to an Emunand? And it auto-boots on Emunand, this is it?

    Dont rush anything more, try to get a more experienced response first, but from my point of view u still have a working sysnand so if u can ever enter a decrypt9 it should not have problem restoring it providing u have a backup.

    I don't know what you did, I'm trying to make sense of what happened, but I can't. Are you sure you didn't just update sysnand by mistake and now you think you're booting into emunand when you're actually booting into sysnand?

    Yeah I messed up my emunand so I got into decrypt9 and restored my working sysnand to my emunand that's when the issue started. Aurienand wouldn't boot into emunand without holding the R button. I now have a working 9.2 sysnand and a 10.6 emunand but Aurienand will autoboot into my 9.2 sysnand unless I put the sysnand flag file in the rei folder and then it will autoboot into 10.6 reinand. I don't have a way to boot hombrew in my 10.6 emunand. That's why I want to start again. Get a fully working 9.2 sysnand and then create emunand and get FBI or Hombrew menu cia at least into my emunand and have Aurienand autoboot my emunand.

    No mate. My sysnand is running 9.2 and let's me get into Hombrew launcher using browserhax. It's like my nands are switched in Aurienand. My emunand is running 10.6 and has a save manager on it that boots.

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

    Lol, how would I tell. A9LH is working and boots me into the nand which I think is sysnand running 9.2, I have folder in it that tells me it's sysnand. Emunand or what I think is emunand has a save manager cia on it that boots and works and is running 10.6

    Are there any real problems though? It sounds like you can keep that setup just fine since with a9lh, sysnand is equal to (and a little better than) emunand.

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

    It's not as easy to tell as when you had menuhax for obvious reasons, but like I said previously, Aureinand knows which nand to boot up even if you don't through the flags. Just trust it. You've most likely updated sysnand on accident thinking it was emunand and that's fine. You really don't need to do anything else. Just make sysnand your main.

    I'm getting it. And you are saying u can't open drecypt9 neither via emunand or via bootmanager? If no, so there is something that was badly done in someway. U said u cant enter HBL on your 10.6 nand, if u followed plailect's guide, u should have FBI installed on this, right? If so, install cubic ninja\OoT and you will regain access to it.

    Edit: corrected quote.

    if u already have a9lh, u need to learn how to launch a9lh compatible payload.

    run emunand9tool, u can format sdcard for clean storage without emunand partition.

    I had a fully working setup with fbi in my emunand so there was no need to follow the guide, i have tried using a9lh to boot into decrypt9 i have black screens. Right now i have either updated my sysnand to 10.6 and have a working emunand on 9.2 that can boot into homebrew launcher but get a red screen on decrypt9 and errors using dev menu or fbi to install cia or aurienand has my nands confused.

    All i want is to have a 9.2 sysnand with a9lh as wont be removing it, and then i will create a new emunand

    try different arm9loaderhax. the objective here is to run emunand9tool or other payload which u need to reconfirm your a9lh is working fine. for starter u can try bootctrl9:-
    https://github.com/hartmannaf/BootCtr9/releases/

    download latest version, put all files in sd card. edit boot_config.ini. u can configure which button to pressed to launch specific payload. for an example:-
    https://github.com/d0k3/EmuNAND9/releases

    example config you can try to boot emunand9tool (without presing any button on boot)
    [DEFAULT]
    path = /EmuNAND9.bin
    delay = 1000
    offset = 0
    payload = -1

    Why? I had that thought process too, but (at least with Cakes) you can block FIRM updates. If Nintendo decides to exploit the console(s) to overwrite the FIRM, they'd be able to do it regardless of SysNAND / EmuNAND.

    so the arm9loaderhax i have right now is for aureinand yeah? i will try this when i get home :) the fact i can boot into two nands and the fact that they n3ds wont boot without the sd card tells me a9lh is working though

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

    well because right now i cant do much. If i can get one nand that i can run homebrew and install cia files onto it, ill be happy, i can get into homebrew launcher and thats about it.
