    I wanted to do a system transfer from emuNAND to emuNAND and I figured all I would need to do is swap SD cards and it will work on the other system. That is not the case as I just learned the NAND backups are unique to the internal motherboards they were made from.

    I still have backups from both 3DS systems and nothing is bricked, can I recover from this and try again but this time go from emuNAND to NAND?

    Restore the original emunand respective to each, and restore the Nintendo 3DS folder you originally had.

    Once you ensure both have the folders they did (or at least the host 3ds has all its files), ensure you still have a backup of the /Nintendo 3DS/ folder from the host 3ds then do an online-based system settings system transfer to the dummy NAND (both must be on latest firm) and then copy the host Nintendo 3DS folder over to the other system's SD root

    Restore everything to their respective SD as CripsyYoshi said, then do a normal system transfer through system settings

    In my experience, if you get asked to, choose to transfer SD manually (since one of my SD had 50GB of stored data, and the target has 16GB max), when done, copy the now transfered Emunand in the target SD to the source SD (or copy the files from the source SD to the target SD), as long as you keep your Nintendo 3DS folder, you will keep your games and saves even if they don't appear in the home menu, legit games will appear when you link your NNID, reinstalling your CIAs will make the pirated ones appear (when trying to install, FBI will throw a "already installed" error at 0% and the game will show up, with your saves and stuff).

    If your target SD has more space than the source SD you don't have to worry.

    If I remember correctly, when the transfer is done it will try to connect to the net to "finish the transfer" and it will error and retry, you have to disconnect your wifi so the console let you off.

    Of course, this also means the target emunand will be lost (unless you backup beforehand).

    What should i use to restore the emunand to the source SD card? I tried emunand9 and it makes an emunand but its just a duplicate of the blank nand on the system. Maybe I'm choosing the wrong setting here, what should I be using?

    Use this tool on your PC.
    1. Download the tool
    2. Put in your sd card to your computer
    3. Open the tool
    4. Choose to inject nand
    5. Choose the backup
    6. Let it inject

    for me, system transfer from 2ds emunand 10.7 to n3dsxl updated sysnand 10.7. the only thing lost during this process is the invalid ticket info.
    "reinstall" the game will solve the problem.
    or backup ticket before system transfer

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of merory card are you using and what kind of 3ds. Is the home menu slow to pull up when press the home button.

    People actually use the 3DS browser for legitimate purposes other than browserhax?

    Whenever I used the tool and try to inject my emuNAND backup I get this message

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/87121071/emunand.png

    It keeps asking me to format my emunand again, which I've done twice already. Maybe I'm not doing it right, which option am I suppose to be choosing in the menu?

    I restored my emunand using decrypt9 and its much more easier to use than emunand9, no offense.

    Now I got a new problem and I'm hoping someone can help me figure this out and no I have not system transferred over yet. I went to go check the eShop for something and then I get an error code relating to my Nintendo ID not being linked so I go into system settings and check it out and it says this ID cannot be used on this system. I tried unlinking it and do the whole setup process again by signing in with an existing ID and I get this error code 022-2597 and it says I have my Nintendo ID linked with another 3DS system. I own this ID and neither the sysnand or emuNAND have this ID linked and I cant relink, I even tried formatting the system to see if that would resolve the issue and it didnt.

    Any ideas?

    What happens when you try to link sysNAND? Same? If you don't find a solution, you can call Nintendo and get them to manually unlink your NNID from wherever it's linked and link it back to your system (you'll just have to tell them your console's serial).
