    So I formatted EmuNAND on my 3DS so that I could update it to 9.4 and then I downgraded to 4.5 after that. Before doing it, it said that it would delete everything so I just backed up my 3DS SD card. Well then after formatting I put everything back on and nothing came back on the 3DS menu. Why is this??

    I had Animal Crossing downloaded and I don't really want to lose that save so I guess what I'm really asking is how do I get the save file back? I already re-downloaded it (the game).

    If you backed up your nand (you should have), restore that as well to get your games back (but it will put you back on 9.2 or where ever you were)

    Try using Folder Renaming trick (I posted it in my latest thread).

    Basically you:
    1. Backup SysNAND to SD CARD
    2. Format EmuNAND
    3. Copy stuff back to SD
    4. Remove big SD-card from the device/format SysNAND (for unlinking)

    Right?

    Just if anyone looks for it.

    I figured I could do this but I want the 4.5. Is there a way to maybe extract the save or somehow inject that save from the SD backup I have?

    When you transfer stuff back to your SD card make sure you delete the "Nintendo 3ds" folder before copying the old one back. That's what I had to do and it worked
