    Hi it occurs to me that when I am using emunand 4.5, there are some games (newer games) that won't boot. My guess is these games require feature in emunand >4.5 or the so called new encryption after 7.1?

    If I am going to stick with emunand 4.5, is there an easy way to identify which game can or cannot run on emunand 4.5? Easy way like reading at a certain byte within the file would be great.

    And just to confirm, if I am to patch or spoof them, that still 100% won't work or there is just a chance that it won't work?

    No need to ask why I want to stick with emunand 4.5. Thanks

    Why don't you take a look and see what that link provides you. It does answer one of your questions.

    Ok, I see, a lookup site. But not really complete.

    I just found out if you use 3DSExplorer, look into the PlainRegion, if you see SDK 7.1 or above, then that game is not compatible with 4.5 (someone please verify this)

    You know you can update your emunand offline with a game, or with UpdateCDN if the problem is the internet connection.

    I don't see why he wants to stick it out on emunand 4.5, but that is his question.

    I think you can have two emunand
    One sd card, 4.5
    Another sd card with 9.5

    Generally yes, when a game has been compied with a higher SDK, usually it won't work. However there have been exceptions to this. Such as Persona Q which I think requires a firmware of 8.1 . I don't know how they did it because I'm just beginning to understand how to convert 3DS roms to CIA and I am unsuccessful so far.....
