    After messing around with things (TinyFormat, damn you), I've erased all the games and softwares I had on sysNAND, in an attempt to copy them on emuNAND.
    I know that in EmuNAND9 there is a way to clone NAND.bin to emuNAND, but doing so makes FBI work less efficiently (it still install games, but not DLC). I was wondering, how do I clone NAND.bin to sysNAND?

    With a hardmod I would assume, I don't there's a way to do it without hardmodding.

    use gateway.menu
    download latest gateway launcher.dat from official web site.

    put .dat on your root of sd card and put 3dsx on 3ds folder like another homebrew.
    then launch gateway menu from hbl.

    holding dpad up and select downgrade.

    Downgrade? Wait, I don't need to downgrade anything... I have Cakes CFW with the two NANDs unlinked, I just want to clone the previous NAND.bin (got when CFW was installed) to sysNAND. Like "Clone NAND.bin to EmuNAND" in EmuMAND9, got it?

    Sorry, I'm a total noob lol

    Holding up WHILE pressing A writes back the NAND.BIN onto the NAND ... it doesn't downgrade anything.
    It's a "hidden" feature.

    I have no fucking idea.
    Why do people ask questions in the tutorial section? If you just had a quick search on google you would have found your answer.

    Well, then... I must boot GW from the HB menu, and then press A while holding L, right?
    One final question: where must NAND.bin be placed?

    And I've googled it, and didn't find anything... Also, I'm new here, so I don't know exactly where to put my threads. Sorry for the mistake.

    I need to do the same - I made a SysNAND backup just after downgrading to 9.2 and I want to restore to that backup.

    Could someone help me in finding the Gateway menu?

    According to Februarysn0w, there is an official site... If you find it before me, would you post it here? I'll do the same if I find it before you!

    So I decided to just restore my NAND.bin to EmuNAND to save a whole load of kerfuffle (don't plan on pirating anyways) so yay :D

    Ah! TRAITOR!!! I thought you were my frieeeendddd :c

    I'm quite an idiot, forgive me lol. Good luck!

    However, that GateWay thing worked! I now have a fresh sysNAND!
    After done this (and clonend NAND.bin to emuNAND), I was wondering... Now that I have identhical sys and emu unlinked, is there a way to link them again? You now, for that FBI thing, and get it full operative. I'll then dump H&S, inject FBI, and unlink them again, this was my plan.
    Is it possible to link the two NANDs again, then?

    Question. If you create a nand backup then downgrade, can you restore the backup once you're on 9.2 to go back to 10.3 for example?
    In case the downgrade partially downgrades?
