    Hi,

    I have a 9.2 EU N3dsxl MH4 edition with the game installed on internal SD.
    I'm trying to understand if there are any special requirements to install the OOT exploit.
    My main questions are the following:

    1) Do I need to open the 3ds to remove the internal SD card?
    2) Is there any risk to delete the game when installing the exploit?
    3) Once I successfully install the exploit and update the emunand to 9.5 will I still "see" the installed game and be able to play?
    4) Will my current, original savegame be available in emunand?

    At the moment I'm just looking to install the eshop updates for the game, and play online with the legit copy (preinstalled).

    Thanks for the help, if there is a specific guide to follow I don't mind a simple link as info seems quite fragmented at the moment.

    Right around the cornerâ„¢
    1) Yes/No, you need to transfer the launcher.dat to your SD card. Either remove it manually or use the wireless SD management app.
    2) No.
    3) Yes.
    4) Yes, as long as you don't unlink SysNAND and EmuNAND that is.

    So I've re-read the gw instruction manual and they keep mentioning to insert a sd card in the n3ds for emunand use that will be formatted, but this is the card with MH4 on it. I'm in the process of backing up the game data and will take it from there.
    Any experince with this who can give advice?

    thanks

    Backup your sd card content, choose format emunand then restore the sd card content. I did that with my zelda LE and I still have the game on my sysnand.

    It should be, but personally I direcrly connected the micro-sd to the pc.
