    I updated my o3DS rxtools emunand sometime ago from some version to 10.7 and lost all my CIA games. I want to update to latest version now but how can I do so without losing my CIA games?

    Strange issue you have there, try using Luma, maybe that will solve it. ;)

    What even was the point of replying to this thread? Oh wait, your name.


    There is no reason your games should have been deleted when updating your Emunand, check the free space on the SD card, maybe they're still on there, might need the Nintendo 3DS folder adjusting

    Have you tried backing up your stuff then updating? Also, please stop using rxtools. It takes 5 mins to switch to luma and get more reliable support

    You didn't switch your NAND, like flash your sysNAND to your emuNAND?
    Also please stop using rxtools and switch to a more up to date CFW
    And honestly, stop using menuHAX, setting up A9LH is completely foolproof and the risk of bricking has almost been completely eliminated. It also takes a lot less time to set up. Trust me, it's worth the effort to update, clinging to old stuff like MenuHAX and RXTools just isn't worth it.

    I really don't wanna spend much time even if it's worth it; I got LOTS of cia games installed it would be a nightmare reinstalling everything. I'll just switch to luma much easier.

    Doesn't AL9H only use sysnand or will it work with emunand?

    EDIT: NVM I'm just reading the Plailect guide on how to transfer from emunand

    I installed A9LH with Luma, works great. Only reason I bothered was because 100% boot rate biggest factor for me :)
