    Thanks for the super fast response.

    Should do, although I know little about EmuNAND. So if you have one, that could be a factor.

    I do, and that is what I am worried about. I remember something about it storing the emunand strange to where a copy paste wont work. Hence the question.

    Unless you have an EmuNAND, then yes.

    If you do have an EmuNAND, then read this.

    Perform a EmuNAND backup using Decrypt9. Then Copy-Paste. Boot into Decrypt9, and recover EmuNAND.

    I edited my previous post with a link. Also, use the search function next time instead of making a new thread; I found that tutorial with a single search.

    I did search and all I got was a topic about someone bitching about Mario Maker. Thanks for the link!

    Nice join date!

    Yeah, GBAtemp's search can be a bit funky; I find Google to work better for finding topics most of the time.

    Haha, you too!

    If it's an SDXC one, you'll need to format it to FAT32 with a 32k cluster and set the partition to primary with Minitool partition wizard.

    After that it's just a matter of copying everything over and you're good to go.

    If you got EmuNAND, you could dump the EmuNAND with decrypt9 and make a new EmuNAND partition with EmuNAND9 (I believe you can also inject the EmuNAND dump with it)

    Using an external third party tool can be used to extract and inject it

    In a Nutshell, Make a New Emunand, Then Restore Your Emunand Backup, You should really use A9LH its a lot better

    Why do you need to backup emunand and all that complicated stuff? You can't copy things over, but you can make a 1:1 image of your existing SD card, then write that image onto your new SD card. What Xiphiidae linked is the best, and easiest way to go about this. Messing with decrypt9 etc. is just completely pointless.

    You really should install A9LH tho.

    I tried the link, the USB Image Tool keeps giving me an error and wont dump the SD card. I tried with decrypt9, dump the emunand, copy, paste, then I installed the emunand, now I cant boot into CFW, starts in the regular firmware now. Not sure what I am missing or doing wrong here now.

    Will it still boot into emunand with your old SD card? Or is your emunand setup completely hosed?
