So I am in the process of installing Emummc on my Switch. I have used CFW in the past before only for save editing my saves once in a blue moon and always offline while I do it, but I figured that now to be safe I install Emummc. My question is I mainly plan on using Emummc to just save edit my saves as I only play single player games. If I edit my save on the emunand, can I transfer that save to my sysnand by any chance?

yes you can use checkpoint or other utilities. But you said that you used CFW on sysnand? so if you ever plan on going online on sysnand restore your nand. but first create an emummc of your sysnand and problem solved?

In the past all I've done is use Hekate to get to edizon and edit my savefiles, nothing more. So my goal is pretty much to just use emummc to do that from now on instead of just using my sysnand for it. But since emummc and sysnand are somewhat separate what I was wondering if any saves file I edit on emmunc can be transferred to sysnand.

Yes, they can, with Checkpoint but that would involve booting CFW on sysMMC to restore the save... This defeating the safety you're trying to achieve with emuMMC

If you boot CFW on sysMMC you are running the risk of a ban. The risk for save editing single-player offline games seems relatively safe, it's no guarantee... And it doesn't help that no one has been getting banned recently so we don't really know what Nintendy is up to.

The safest way is the make emuMMC and play the games you want to modify there and leave sysMMC alone.
If you're going to boot CFW to recover modified saves from emuMMC then you are wasting your time for the same exact risk and might as well just keep modifying saves on sysMMC.

It's best to not touch sysMMC with CFW at all.

Thank you for taking the time and detailing this for me. You pretty much answered my questions.

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    But this is the general chit chat. Nobody responds to questions.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.
