    Why not update EmuNAND to 10.5 now that ReiNAND supports it.

    Why bother? I've seen people say this, but I don't see the point. No new features have been added past 9.5 that are of interest to me. And every single game I download is already cryptofixed or whatever else may need to have been done in order to play them, so the whole idea of updating my EmuNAND just sounds like a needless hassle. I'm sure it's safe and probably pretty easy, I just don't see the point. Until a new feature is implemented in a future FW update that I NEED to have (getting Amiibo support and theme shuffling were the last big updates that I cared about), I'm just gonna stay put.

    That's nice and all, but updating gets rid of the need for cryptofixing.. It's like the PSP scene.. If you're comfortable where you're at, then stay put. I don't see a reason not to update. That's just me.

    If I was the one actually applying the cryptofixes, I might care, but lets get real, I just get them from a certain site where people are uploading every single title these days cryptofixed if they need to be to begin with. I'm in no way restricted or inconvenienced by keeping my emuNAND where it is, so as I was saying... why bother?

    hey there Xenon Hacks, while being "by Sandisk" and "ships from and sold by Amazon" (and Prime eligible) certainly lowers the chance of being sold a counterfeit or "scrapped series" MicroSD card, I can say from experience that it does not always eliminate the risk. I'm pretty sure you can google fake microsd cards sold by amazon, or something similar (haven't tried to, myself), and find many cases. Maybe Amazon have tightened things up, but I'll just say that I've had a couple of incidents that make it clear that either Amazon itself knowingly engages in selling dubious goods, or, more likely, are sometimes ripped off by suppliers in china, or middle men in the wholesale process. By "dubious goods", I'm referring to counterfeit/copy and/or sub-retail-quality scrapped cards which are made at the real factory but don't meet standards and are not meant to be sold, or cards from "unsanctioned manufacturing runs", where some rogue manager runs the factory in the middle of the night, producing cards that either all have the same serial number, or using a non-standard series (as was the case with a fairly well-known incident involving Kingston cards a while back).

    anyway, the fact is, even brick and mortar retail outlets, if they have their own buyers sourcing these things in the PRC, could end up in a similar situation. so i'm in no way dissuading anyone from buying from Amazon. truth be told, i would say 75% of all items aside from food, paper products (toilet paper, paper towels etc), and other consumables, i purchase via amazon. they really should do a better job of policing the place though. recently some ass monkeys were selling "256GB microSD cards" for about $15-30, and of course the feedback was insane.. tons of fake 5 star reviews, and tons of 1 star reviews pointing out that the item was totally fake, and only held about 8GB or 16GB .. It was fulfilled by amazon, too. you'd think with the mountain of complaints, they would have acted swiftly, but instead the item sat there on their site for a long time. this was around black friday last year. some people said maybe they meant 256 gigaBITS.. but even then, that would be 32GB, and i don't think it held that much.. even if it did, that is HIGHLY disingenuous of both the seller and amazon, as the listing very clearly implied that this was 256gigabytes, and was a large-capacity card.

    wow that went way off topic.

    Actually I did want to do that anyway. Other CIAs so far work fine, but Story of Seasons isn't working for some reason and I think I need to update ReiNAND. How would I go about updating emunand form 9.5 to 10.5?

    I've been using a 128gb card for a while now - a Sandisk one - and it works just fine. I was originally using a 32gb Samsung one but followed a guide on here to move my emunand over to the new card, and I've had zero issues - it's currently around 95gb filled :)

    I was thinking that i should only use SD cards on 3DS.

    While this all very true, you can help yourself by staying away from "unknown" brands. Taking a look at "128gb microsd card class 10" there's TONS of no name brands that are less than half the price of known brands like PNY, Sandisk, Samsung, etc. Although even this can't save you all the time. This is a rather old article, but very interesting:

    128GB is great. Just buy it officially from somewhere, do not buy from China/Japan/Ebay.

    Wow, that is worrying. I don't think I'd be able to tell if a card is real or not. I might need to do some research on how to spot a fake 128GB kingston. The store here has them at a brick and mortar location so if it's fake I can get a refund, though the particular store does a lot of grey imports.
