    So I just helped my girlfriend downgrade to 9.2 (everything went fine first try, old3DS) and set up emunand using Emunand9tool, and the December 5th RXtools nightly. everything worked fine, all her games and everything showed up. She bought a new SDcard today, and again using Emunand9tool we formatted the fresh, never before used sdcard. I then copied all the files from the old sdcard to the new one, and used Emunand tool to inject the old emunand into the new sdcard. However, now when booting into emunand none of the games show up, and fbi fails installing due to "database does not exist."
    Inside the "Nintendo 3DS" folder are now two more folders, a new one, and the old one I copied to it.

    Should I have copied the "Nintendo 3DS" folder to the new sdcard before formatting emunand to ensure the nands were properly linked?


    EDIT: I solved the problem by just deleting the new folder emunand9tool created.

    (`_っ´)you might know but its just a reminder : To unlink NANDs you need to format one of them ( If sysNAND take out the SD Card )

    The goal is to keep the nands linked. I'm sorry if my post isn't worded very well, I'm tired.

    What's the point of keeping sysNAND and emuNAND linked? I forget.

    You don't have to install GBA games in sysnand, CIA save games carry over between NANDs, i forget what else.

    I personally put the nintendo 3DS folder inside the SD card after I formatted on GateWay

    Makes certain things easier like installing gba and dsiware games.

    This happened to me, too, and I fixed it the same way. I'm curious why it happened, though. I know that EmuNANDTool didn't format my sysNAND, but I thought it had for a second. Does anyone know why EmuNANDTool does this?

    My guess is where it tries to set the SDcard up after formatting, but has no foundation to build off of. So it just sets up a new Nintendo 3DS folder, then when you copy everything back, the 3ds starts looking at the first title/ticket.db in the file system, which is the one emunand9tool created.

    That's just not exactly what I expected to happen when I formatted it lol.
