Somehow i've got a new switch which is BANNED, and i want to move my current switch's emunand data to banned switch's sysnand so that i can use whole microSD card as a storage.

I've found a way that MIGHT work but i'm not really sure, and i don't want my new switch to be bricked.

So before carrying it out i want to make sure if this is the right way.

This is the way i found out : there's Hekate backup&restore tool, and i made a backup for emunand area, both [SD eMMC BOOT0&BOOT1], [SD eMMC RAW GPP] with [SD emuMMC RAW Partition] button ON, put the files in the restore folder.

After that in the restore section, i will restore the files with [SD emuMMC RAW Partition] OFF, so that the partition area can be restored on sysnand.

Will I be able to migrate emunand data to sysnand with this?

Technically that should be possible but 1 mistake and you have a lot more to worry about.
Dumping your savegames with Checkpoint and reinstalling all your games will lower the chances of bricking your Switch.

Did anyone tried this? I like to do it on the same switch (not 2 different devices - emummc was created from the same device).
I don't want to re-install everything new.

Should be possible.
