    SysNAND is essentially the system, and you don't want to screw it up. EmuNAND is a clone of the SysNAND, that runs off the SD card and if the EmuNAnd bricks, you can always fallback to a sysnand and create a new emunand of it.

    Short answer:
    You don't need an emunand unless you're paranoid about bricking.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Emunand9. It's also a hidden sector on your SD card.

    If you do have a9lh, you shouldn't be too worried as a9lh offers brick protection so you can restore your sysNAND backup if anything terrible happens

    Get EmuNAND9 from github.com/d0k3/emunand9/releases and put the emunand9 bin file into your Luma\Payloads folder of your sdcard and rename it to x_EmuNAND9.bin. Make a backup of your entire sdcard to your pc, then turn off your 3ds and turn it back on while holding x to boot into emunand9. Choose complete emunand setup. Boot into the luma3ds configuration menu (hold select while booting) and disable "autoboot sysnand" and "use sysnand firm if booting with r". Then restore your sdcard's backup. Voila.

    If you've got a large SD of 64 gb and above, it honestly can't hurt to have an emuNAND.

    As somebody who bricked their console while stuck 3500 kilometers away from my PC and my 3DS restoration equipment for over three weeks, I can happily say that i am using emuNAND from now on. I'm never getting stuck without a 3DS ever again, while away from home!

    I just fixed it today and setting up emuNAND as we speak.

    Far less than two gigabytes if you use the 'redNAND' implementation of emuNAND :)

    Yes

    No

    That's one of the main reasons emunand was created

    Yes

    A9LH DOES NOT have brick protection. The CFW running from it does, (or doesn't). That said, an emunand is unnecessary with A9LH as Luma3DS carries the brick protection. You're just taking up extra space on your SD card for absolutely no reason. By all means use it if you want but you're not adding an extra layer of protection if you already have A9LH. Emunand was a thing to keep it separate from sysnand so you could have a hackable OS updated without removing them. With A9LH, it's basically set it and forget it until an update comes out. Whether you use Emunand or Sysnand, A9LH works the same way.

    Brick protection is dependent on the CFW you're running from A9LH. Not A9LH itself. Gateway anyone?
