Also some questions about Emunand.

Does it behave the same way SysNand behaves? In other words, to fully shut down still have to reboot into SX menu and shut down from there? Still have to use AutoRCM (unless I want to short rails every time I boot)... etc... basically everything is the same functionality wise, except I can be on latest firmware on the emunand?

Thanks!

EDIT:

For anyone looking for a guide, the process is quite easy.

1) Wipe the SD Card and format as FAT32 (32GB or larger SD)
2) Boot into SX menu (hold Vol+ on boot)
3) Create Emunand from there (hidden partition). (Will take about an hour)
4) Once back in proper OS launch SX Menu (via photo album) it should say you are in emunand (if cant boot make sure you are on SXOS 2.8 or later)
5) Download Switch update and ChoiDujourNX (look up a guide how to update, make sure you are in Emunand when you update). Process is basically just run ChoiDujourNX and pick the Firmware folder.

Thats it.

Yes. EmuNAND/EmuMMC behave exactly the same way as SysNAND.
And yes. For SX OS you have to reboot to sx payload and shutdown from there or hold power button to ferce shutdown it. Or you can use ams with proper shutdown.
With 4.1.0, you can use caffein to reboot to cfw.
But the first point still stands. EmuNAND/EmuMMC works just like SysNAND.

Thanks. Is there a guide to making the transition?
