    In Decrypt9WIP:
    1. Backup emuNAND to emuNAND.bin
    2. Restore sysNAND using emuNAND.bin
    Done

    **MAKE SURE YOUR EMUNAND VERSION IS STILL ON A VERSION THAT SUPPORTS HAX (NOT 10.6+)**

    If you're running A9LH, I don't think so; otherwise, downgrade EmuNAND before backing it up.

    Does your 3DS boot without an SD Card? If so, you don't have A9LH installed.

    Yep i load up just fine without an sd! Tbh i think it'll be easier if i just start from the top and format my new sd. This all happened because i tried to upgrade to a bigger sd card and transfer my emunand from the old one to the new one. Anyone have any instructions i could follow to get it done?

    Both of those don't sound right... Homebrew apps launch in whichever NAND you ran them in. Additionally, EmuNand is a replica of your sysnand until you "unlink" them by formatting sysnand. Are you saying you accidentally formatted another EmuNand, which copied sysnand over to emunand and replaced your old one? Do you have any EmuNand backups or perhaps a SysNand backup before you formatted/unlinked SysNand?

    What are you trying to achieve?

    Well i formatted the new sd to start from scratch. I'm just trying to send ,my emunand from my old 16gb sd to a bigger 64gb one so i can have more space.

    The first step is to format the new SD card so it has an EmuNand partition. If your computer reads the new SD card as "EMUNAND9SD", then you've already done this.

    Run Decrypt9 and dump EmuNand.bin from the old SD card. Press select to unmount the SD card (keep the system on)
    With the system still running Decrypt9 and both SD cards out, copy your fresh EmuNand.bin dump over to the new card root. You can also copy all your other files over if you wish.

    Put the new card in the system and press B to exit the Unmount menu. In EmuNand Options, select "Restore EmuNand" to write EmuNand.bin into the new card.

    From there, you can copy all your files over (if you haven't in the previous step) but otherwise that's all you need to do. You can delete the EmuNand.bin off the SD, but I'd keep it somewhere safe on your computer, perhaps under the name "EmuNand_migrate.bin"

    Use EmuNAND9.

    Same way you did the first card, run emunand9 on it and create a new emunand (to overwrite with your old one)
