    Hey guys, so it's been a while since I've messed with any of this stuff. Could someone just remind me how to backup as well as restore my NAND? I'm on ReiNand with a9lh.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jack

    Rather vague. Could someone give me a bit more descriptive help?

    Press start at the same time you power on you 3DS, the backup menu will appear, search for Decrypt9 and select the option you need (Restore or backup NAND)

    I can't seem to boot into it. Select boots me in ReiNand config, RB attempts to boot me into emuNand(which doesn't work because I don't use one), LB attempts to do some funny business with ReiNand and firmware, and the d-pad and face buttons don't do anything. Holding start just gives me a normal boot. Thoughts?

    Strange, are your arm9lh and luma full actualized?

    Well, I run ReiNand instead of Luma, but I would assume so. This isn't a fresh install, I've been running on CFW for months now.

    Luma is the same than Reinand, so dont worry. Lemme check a pair of things.

    So I'm a genius. I loaded my SD card into my PC, and I deleted decrypt9 when I was cleaning up my SD for space *facepalm*. I have all the decrypt9 files on my PC, just need to reinstall.

    If you don't want to mess with changing any settings or changing your ReiNAND, you can just do this:
    • Download the decrypt9 archive
    • Rename arm9loaderhax.bin on your SD card to arm9loaderhaxold.bin
    • Copy arm9loaderhax.bin from the decrypt9 archive to your SD card
    • Boot your 3ds and you'll go straight to decrypt9
    • Do what you need to do in decrypt9
    • Power off, rename arm9loaderhax.bin to decrypt9.bin, and arm9loaderhaxold.bin to arm9loaderhax.bin

    As others have said though, changing to Luma will allow you to have a boot menu when you start up so you can quickly boot to other a9lh payloads like decrypt9 by holding down keys on boot. But the above might be quicker and easier if you just want to run decrypt9 as a one-off.

    Hahahaha, that explains a lot dude, good thing you realized. Don't touch files unless you know exactly your SD structure.

    What it was is that I had already made a SysNand backup, and I was like,"oh, well I won't need to do that again!"

    Decrypt9 reinstalled and bound to L+R. Thanks for all the help guys. (Making a notepad of my key bindings so I don't forget and look like a dumbass. :'( )

    If you do switch to Luma, you can use a nice splash screen which will show you the buttons to hold down to boot various payloads such as decrypt9 :)

    May switch to Luma just for that.

    If you do, you can look here for some nice splash screens:

    https://splash.3dsthem.es

    Some are just images, but others have button layouts on them to show what button to hold for which payload. You just have to name the payload files correctly to get them bound to the correct key. I believe the Luma installation instructions cover it in more detail :)
