    Check the "Nintendo 3DS" folder on your SD

    If there are 2 folders, your NANDS are unlinked.

    Setup a theme. If sysnand and emunand have the same, then your nands are linked.

    there are several folders, but when I set a theme in emunand, the emunand does not boot anymore :(

    something with menuhax, I guess...

    Weird...
    If your nands are linked, that means that if you install an app in emunand, you will see it in sysnand, and vice versa.

    That's "Nintendo 3DS". The "3ds" folder is for homebrew.

    So maybe your nands are unlinked. To be sure:
    -try to install a gba game into emunand (not the sysnand). If you get "an error has occurred ..." then your nands are unlinked!!
    -Change the theme (if you see it only on the nand you install it, then there are unlinked)
    -Install a cia (if you see it only on the nand you install it, then there are unlinked)

    yes, every .cia I install is ONLY on the emunand. still, when I change a theme in emunand, it does not boot into emunand anymore. I guess that is has something to do with menuhax?!

    I just want to use a basic pre-installed theme and I read that changing the theme kills menuhax.

    You don't need menuhax on emunand, so yeah kill it by installing a basic theme!
    To have homebrews on emunand, use the homebrew launcher cia!

    You can change theme in sysnand and keep menuhax by using menuhax installer. On emunand, just use chmm2 (and be sure to unistall menuhax)
