    Question on the title. I have a 100% legal N3DS with over 20GB of original content from eshop.

    I really want to downgrade and setup Reinand but i don't really want to download EVERYTHING over again.

    Its possible to do that?

    I managed to do it. Your content is linked with your NNID, and your ID is linked to your console hardware. So when I formatted my Emunand to unlink my Nands, I copied my Nintendo 3ds folder over to the computer and after the format, it erased my legit eshop content from my Sysnand! Oh no! But since formatting doesn't get rid of your Nintendo ID (It doesn't even sign you out), I just copied my stuff from the 3ds folder to the new folder it created for my Sysnand and all my stuff was there, including saves.

    The only thing you have to worry about is your downloaded games needing a higher firmware than 9.2. (RIP, Ironhax.)

    I can't use my legit games in emunand and make my emunand my 100% system after all?

    Thanks, i already done a lot of downgrades and Rxtools / CFW on O3DS but never on my N3DS.
    I know a lot of things btw.

    I questioned that because in a lot of tutorials i had to use Tiny Format cia to format my sys/emunand and then i lost my games (but can download it again with NNID linking).
    Now i want to downgrade and install emunand / cfw reinand without having to download everything again :P

    thanks indeed. Gonna try it, i think.

    nope, no issues, just pay attention to what files you are downgrading with (n3ds) and backup your sd card before emunand setup
