    I'm following the a9lh tutorial and I just got done backing up emunand and system nand with OTP helper. I transfered the backups to my PC then was about to do the 2.1 downgrade but I noticed my sysnand is 1,933,912 but my emunand is 1,269,469?! I been running gateway for sometime now on my Japan new 3ds since 3.1 came out and my emu and sys nand always matched were never different. Is this normal? I should add that I started fresh from part one of the tutorial so I wouldn't have any problems

    Thanks in advance

    Also I'm able to boot lamaCFW emunand perfectly even with the mismatched nand sizes

    first, it's luma3ds.
    second, do not use the gateway emunand to downgrade, use the sd emunand

    "Started from part 1 of the tutorial" so its not gateway emunand. I used emunand9

    I'm on 9.1j and I really don't think my gateway did anything to my sysnand since I used emunand every time and menuhax to boot gateway menu. Let's just forget about the gateway I'm just installing A9LH with a fresh 32gb sd

    Did you use RedNAND on a N3DS? If so, that's normal as RedNAND uses a min size.
    If you're super paranoid, just copy the backup onto your SD and run it through D9's NAND verification tool.

    gateway DOES damage the sysnand. you should do a clean install of 9.2 just to be safe

    If Luma boots then he's fine.

    OK thank you. So I should be fine flashing this emunand to my sysnand after 2.1 downgrade and unbrick

    Assuming you're using a redNAND you should be good. In any case, if you're not sure, run the backup through D9's validation (it'll tell you)
    OTP Helper will check the validity of your downgrade as well.

    Size difference between sysNAND and emuNAND is normal. I'm pretty sure emunand9 backs up redNAND at a minimal size by default.
    I just finished my 3rd A9LH and the difference between your emuNAND and sysNAND are exactly what I experienced.
    Good Luck!

    Seeing as you installed A9LH, you can just update. It will be a while until we see 12.x though ;) First we will get 11.1.
