    You have to install them to sysnand using FBI with destination set to NAND.

    They still need to be installed on sysnand if you want to play them in emunand.

    A quick search in the forum would have answered this question.

    DSiWare gets installed to TWLN section of NAND. The most harm you could do to your 3DS is brick TWL mode. Just keep a backup of TWLN and you'll be fine. :P

    I saw in that pack of DSiWare, was a title that I have desperately been trying to convert to CIA.
    I want to know, if I install that CIA to my SysNAND, while I have a legit copy of on my EmuNAND, will it still work? I feel there might be an encryption error.

    I have never tried since I never bought a single DSiware before, but I have installed some and had them working in emunand by installing them to both NANDS.

    But I don't see why it wouldn't work, you can always try and delete the cia afterwards if it doesn't work anyways.

    Yup, that's what happened to Ruby...

    She has legit DSiware installed in emunand but it doesn't work because they aren't present in sysnand.

    No. it just means you'd only be able to use your DSiWare on sysnand. That assumes it was emunand you formatted. You can backup sysnand first as I think the format will wipe TWLN as well. Just restore sysnand after you formatted emunand and you'll get your DSiWare back on sysnand.

    Oh yeah, I forgot you can format emunand instead to unlink them, sorry about that xd

    Is the web browser from the DSi I guess... Someone found a way to dump system titles from the DSi long ago.

    How does it work?
    You boot it like any DSiware cia from the system menu I guess...

    Useless if you ask me...

    So you can either have DSiWare or unlinked nands but not both?

    Well you can have both. But the process would be complicated. I do have some legit DSiWare on sysnand. Sudoku was one thing I got. But my nands were already unlinked when I downloaded it. I had NNID on both emunand and sysnand while they were already unlinked. I was able to do that by manually transferring movable.sed and system save data from a 3DS I used to own to my 3DS XL. (my main motivation was to get my old Friend Code back). I got my FC back and because the old 3DS used to be on the same NNID as my current one, both nands are currently linked to my NNID while still being seperate. I simply downloaded Sudoku from eShop using the eShop spoof cia to get past the update check.

    I didn't have any DSiWare on the old 3DS at the time. If I did I would have had to redownload them. What makes them "legit" is the tickets for them stored on CTR_NAND. Unlike the DSi, tickets for DSiWare aren't stored on TWLN anymore.


    Don't just copy and paste a movable.sed from a different console to your new one though. You have to alter it first by removing some data and altering the header. If you don't have experience messing with NAND, it's probably something you shouldn't attempt. A bad movable.sed WILL brick your console. Or your emunand depending on which NAND you messed it up on. :P

    How did you accomplish this, Sir? I must know your ways.

    I don't know if it would be this easy to do now a days. Back then the movable.sed and system save data I migrated over was already linked, so I didn't have to go through the menus to relink it.

    In your case I think you'd have to spoof eShop update checks before you can relink an NNID to sysnand. (that CIA that does it should do the job. I forget what it was called though so you'll have to do some searching)

    It should still be possible though. Let's assume your emunand is currently linked to your NNID and your sysnand is too. But they are still linked to each other. You would have to format sysnand to unlink them. This would unlink NNID from your console. As a result your NNID on emunand would stop working. If you can spoof the update checks for eShop/NNID you can just relink sysnand after formatting it. This would also get NNID working again on emunand without you having to do anything to emunand. Whether NNID works or not is all serverside. Once you get your console relinked on Nintendo's eShop/CDN servers, your emunand's NNID will work again.

    Not trying to sound mean, buddy. But I can't use your software.
