    Hello to the lovely community, I have some things that I would like to ask and thanx in advance for anyone willing to take some time and answer.

    Last week I saw the whole 3ds.guide through successfully. (2Ds 11.00.35 EU)

    1. The process was performed on a 4gb SD and I would like to upgrade to a bigger one. How does this work? Do I just copy the files from one to another or is there an app that somehow gets the files and injects them to the new SD?
    2. I installed a CIA (Project X Zone 2) and it indicates that I should update. Although I can bypass it and play the game normally, should I update? is there any risk? (noticed that games also require updates from time to time)
    3. I install CIAs with FBI. if I want to uninstall one, do I just do it by going to the settings of the 2ds and remove it from there? Read somewhere this might cause an issue.
    4. Can I generally safely update now that I have a CFW, although I am on the last FW I would like to know.

    Thanx once again, looking forward to your answers. Keep being cool!

    1. Just copy the files over (unless you have emuNAND, but you probably don't). If the card is bigger than 32 GB make sure it's FAT32 formatted, Windows won't let you format drives larger than 32GB to FAT32 so you'll need a 3rd party tool.
    2. Updating games is fine, but for out of region games you'll need to find the update in CIA format or use CIAngel/freeShop to install it.
    3. Yes.
    4. Yes.

    Thank you very much, just to be safe how do I know if I have an emuNAND? will there be a particular folder on my SD?

    If you only followed 3ds.guide and didn't have CFW before installing A9LH, then you don't have emuNAND.
