    I'm trying to update a freind's o3ds emuNAND to 10.5 but whenever I access emuNAND after upgrading it says "Preparing to start the HOME menu" and then it goes completely black. I made a back up of his emuNAND so I just restore it and try again. Anyone know what's going on?

    Maybe some data is corrupted?

    I remember having this exact problem. I think it was because menuhax was installed on that emuNAND (since it was a copy of the sysNAND on which there used to be menuhax before it got formatted).
    You should have a Nintendo 3DS folder in your 3DS, and several folders with ugly names in it (and a "Private" one, but no one cares). What happens if you rename the biggest (in size) one of them to something else (just add a "lolnope" at the beginning, you'll need that folder later) ?

    If it is because menuhax is set up in emunand, just click on the thememanager and it should delete it off your emunand.

    That's menuhax indeed. Hold L when it says 'preparing' (or any other key(s) you've set up of course), that should get you into the home menu. Then select a theme.

    Sorry I couldn't respond (internet died). I've tried holding L when booting emuNAND but that doesn't do a thing. His 9.2 emuNAND works perfectly fine but it's 10.5 that has the problem. Why would menuhax become a problem when upgrading to 10.5 when 9.2 emuNAND has a theme.

    What I had to do is I had to delete the user data on my SD card. It's okay, it will make a new one and redownload all your content when you need to. It'll be in the "Nintendo 3DS" folder, as a folder with a bunch of numbers in the name.
    (if you unlinked your sysnand you'll have two, the bigger one will undoubtably be your original)

    When you delete it the emunand will start properly and make a new one. :)

    What's the difference between what he said and what I said ? Not that I care, but I wonder why you only fixed your problem now and not before. If that's because my english isn't understandable (which can be the case sometimes, I'm French), I'd like to know what wasn't clear.

    You are too kind. OP was expecting the solution in the first line. Your english is good enough. Just a matter of TL;DR and post time. OP just went to the first solution it found, and it was the latest post when he got in.

    Ok, makes sense. But since I really already had times where I said things and people understood other things, I still asked if that was the case again here, we never know.

    From my experience: if what you are trying to say is not complex, don't write too much. More text usually leads to more mistakes.

    I actually liked more the "L" solution. It was more clean, and no reinstalls needed.

    Aha, actually, if I remember my frantic attempts to fix hte problem and my googling on it I'm pretty sure your post actually clued me in to how to fix it, Hayleia. Then I promptly forgot that this was the thread I found your post in and just saw the last post of a person having issues and I talked about it. So sorry about that. :x
