    (yay tenth post)

    OK, so I successfully downgraded my 3DS from 10.5 to 9.2 (yay again) and then proceeded to install EmuNAND, and, according to this guide (maybe any other), step 6, I need to put a blank text file in the "Nintendo 3DS/<id0>/" folder, <id0> being the combination of numbers and letters that form the folder's name. But then, when I look inside the said folder, it got not one, but three folders with random characters as names! (Also IDK if it's common problem, I didn't know what I'd search for (like, the keywords)) So what should I do? Which should I put the text file in? I dunno if I can attach a photo or something, If you need it to solve this problem, just ask and I'll put it here right away.

    1 is your sysnand
    1 is your emunand
    1 is your old sysnand/emunand that you have formatted (this one is useless and can be deleted)

    Noticed something: Two of them have only one folder inside them, and both start with a "6". The other one has two folders and starts with an "a", and one of these folders has a folder named "Nintendo DSiWare". Maybe this is the one I'm looking for?

    As manuel said, one is a formatted sysnand you can get rid of, the only question is how to identify which is which.

    If you didn't already installed an emunand, you have 2 useless folders and one which is your sysNand. You should delete all of them an reinject the SD back to the 3ds. This one will automatically recreate the right folder to keep

    It's too risky, what if I delete the wrong one?
    What if I put the blank file in all of them?

    Nothing. The system will recreate the one to keep automatically.

    from the looks of it, the odd one out of the three is probably the real one, otherise you could do trial and error. Take out all the folders and restart the 3ds with one folder in the sd card at a time

    SD backup is taking quite a lot of time, will be finished in 14 minutes.

    And does that mean that if I use the wrong one it'll be recreated as well?

    Rename "Nintendo 3DS" to something else, maybe "Nintendo 3DS-Old". Load sysnand and emunand. Compare the folders. Delete the one missing in the new "Nintendo 3DS" from "Nintento 3DS-Old". Delete the new "Nintendo 3DS". Rename "Nintendo 3DS-Old" back to "Nintendo 3DS".
