    Hello ! I want an homebrew to switch between two partitions, because I have a little problem, it's possible, prompt at the boot of the console (payloads.firm) in luma config, or an homebrew cia/3dsx

    If it's possible or already exist say me please

    My sd is 128gb and I want a little partiton for gba games (don't prompt why)

    What do you want to mean by "two partitions"?
    edit: ah, ok. The two partitions of the sd card, right?

    I just don't know. If you have issues with gba games, try to format your sd card to fat32 with 32KB cluster size.

    Why not just run your 3DS games from emuNAND and your GBA games from sysNAND? That wouldn't be all that hard to setup and it'd give you the result you're after.

    If you're basically asking for an emunand for GBA, you'll have to install them on sysnand as well, so it almost defeats the purpose

    I mean, you can partition your SD card from ubuntu easily with gparted, but I don't know how the 3ds will react. It will probably only recognise one partition

    I have a idea (only works with sighax because you can't rename the Nintendo 3DS Folder): When R is pressed at boot switch the Nintendo 3DS Folder with another 3DS Folder (with GBA Cias installed) and launch sighaxpayload.firm, also works with gb/gbc/nes/snes.

    The only way you can do this is with EmuNAND, which is a partition. It is possible to have more than one and have Luma boot one of your choosing.

    If you don't tell us what is that problem or why an emuNAND doesn't solve everything, you're going to have to explain why, either by yourself or after we ask.
