Hey,

so I formatted my SD Card today (32GB SanDisk Class 10) because FBI was installing veeeeery slow (UM would've needed like 5 or 6 hours). Before I formatted it I copied all files to my Desktop and now copied it back to my SD card. Now all I can see is the usual Home Screen without all my games/themes.

I don't really know what happened so I hope you can help me get all working again. The System version still reads ''Sys 11.6.0-39E'' so SysNand should still be installed shouldn't it? What step should I do next? Can I get my old games/themes back? If not how do I reset everything without messing anything up (I fear I could somehow get to stock firmware where it isn't possible to get SysNand back without things like HardMod?)

My knowledge is very limited since I just followed the awesome guides on the internet up until now so I hope you understand my problem and can help me out.

Edit: I formatted to 32FAT and used Luma 8.1.

Ok but right now I don't have anything on my Home Screen anymore besides the stock apps so how do I get the Homebrew app back for example?

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Oh I realized my mistake. I just copied my ''3ds'' file onto the root of the sd card and didnt take all the files out of it first. Now it works again but I didn't have to reinstall my games is this normal?

yea I just copied my whole sd card so I guess it was in there somewhere, the 3ds made a new one since I started it once without having all files on the root but I just merged them together again, so I guess all is fine hopefully, thx guys!

is there a difference? I just moved the ''Nintendo 3DS'' folder into the ''3ds'' folder and then copied all the files in this folder to my root. btw the ''3ds'' folder I'm talking about wasn't the one that's needed for the whole cfw stuff I jsut gave it an unfortunate name, I guess I replaced the Nintendo 3DS folder then I didn't know there was a difference between merging and replacing.

Don't worry about it, merging just merges folders with the same name together instead of removing the old one.
If the 3DS make a new "Nintendo 3DS" folder and you merged it, new files could be with old if they are not overwritten.
The 3DS is very picky about its files and file structure on the SD card.
If it works, it works.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM

  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:

    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm

    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
