Is there an easy way to transfer EmuNAND to a new SD card?

    The guides I've seen use a program to clone the sd to an image and then expand the partition. In my opinion it's fairly simple, but is there an easier way? Has anyone written a tool/script specifically for that? I thought of n1ghty's emuNAND Tool but it seems to require both SDs have an EmuNAND partition and it doesn't seem to support RedNAND.

    Wouldn't that require to dump emunand to file, redo rednand setup on new SD and then restore previous backup NAND to new SD? I wouldn't call it easier, it's about the same.

    That's as good as it gets, although I'd recommend emunandtool.

    Wow, you want it to be simpler than this. You really are lazy aren't you. :rofl:

    I guess it at least doesn't require tools outside the 3DS. Correct me if I'm wrong since I haven't backed up/restored NANDs in a while: If I make the backup as emuNAND.bin it will be saved at the root of the SD right? But when restoring it needs to be inside a "EmuNAND9" folder in the root?

    Not really about laziness, it's for a friend who now lives far away sadly we can't seem to coordinate our times to use TeamViewer or similar.

    I'm pretty sure they can be restored from root. I haven't used emunand9 in a long time though.
