    So, I've done everything from Plailects' guide until Section IV - Copying RedNAND data to SysNAND.
    And now my 3DS is loading the Hourglass9 when press START right after boot and the Decrypt9WIP when I press X after booting.

    Now here comes the tricky part:
    I have a 2GB SD that came with my 3DS. Right now - after doing Plailects' guide - I can access only 958 MB of it because of the ---NAND partition on it. At Section IV, the guide asks to copy emuNAND_original.bin to the SD card. However, the size of the file is 988,8 MB so I can't copy it to my SD.

    Tried using Emunand Tools MAX (I'm using a Mac to do this) to restore the emuNAND_original.bin, but still not booting properly.

    In summary:
    - I have backups of emuNAND and sysNAND on my computer
    - But I have no space on the SD card to save it and restore from Hourglass9
    - Searching on the internet I found Emunand Tools Max (for Mac) and tried restoring with it
    - 3DS loads Hourglass9 and Decrypt9WIP holding the shortcut buttons but it's not booting and it shows a black screen

    Should I use Windows to try this? Or should I just buy a bigger SD?
    Please help me!

    My guess is that the tool you're using doesn't handle redNAND properly, both of these would be good to try! ;)

    You could try doing the sections in the reverse order. Back everything up, then Remove your emunand from your SD card using emunsnd9, then copy everything back and you should have room to put your emunand_original to restore with hourglass9

    You should get a bigger sd card, probably 8gb+. I use a 64gb one myself.

    To clarify OP, do section V first, then section IV

    I can see no reason why it wouldn't work. But upgrading your SD card later is definitely recommended :)
