    So I transfered my brothers Menuhax o3ds to Menuhax n3ds. I chose wireless transfer. The process went fine until the final reboot. It failed the final step because the target system had linked nands -[facepalm]. This was about a week ago. I canceled the transfer on the n3ds and logged into the nnid on it. I formatted the o3ds to use it. I have a emunand backup of the o3ds from before the transfer.
    My brother is really bummed that he lost his saves. Is there any way I can recover them?

    Actual formatting (not tinyformat) deletes everything on the SD card, so no. You could recover Mii Plaza and anything else that saves on NAND, from your backup.

    I'm pretty sure the data is on the n3ds microsd, but encrypted for the final format. That never happened though.
