Did you only restored your emummc backup into sysnand and thats it? For testing purposes I want to do the same (I have my original unmodded sysnand backup if I want to revert back). If you could share how did you do it'll be great.
You should just need to rename the backup files to say sys instead of emu.

Even though it's been answered, yes it can be done. I would backup the eMMC using emutool and convert it to hekate backup format then restore it using hekate.

Read what? It makes no sense.
Why it makes no sense? If his switch is already banned or his switch is not connected to internet or protected with incognito+90DNS (yeah... I know Nintendo can have the means/power to ban any suspicious console), or simply he doesnt care at all if his console could be banned, I dont see a nonsense action to restore a emunand to sysnand. Plus, with nand backups there is always a way to restore it to a clean state.

Why risking a ban? The op didn't say that he is banned. And why such a nonsense with restore the emuMMC to sysMMC? You can just restore the emuMMC backup to the emuMMC partition? Why messing up with the nands?

Hacking/messing with a switch implies different risks, thats something almost everyone know when hacking their consoles. Maybe he needs more storage; why not restoring a emunand backup to sysnand to free space on sdcard with the emummc partition? The tools are there for such things. Only OP knows his own intentions. Making fun of it or disagree with him cant help at all. Anyways, good it can be done!

    well, if you get a gud enuf PSU, you could futureproof it incase you actually need the gpu down the line

    very gud case, but make sure you have the kinda PSU with very flexible cables
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    i know people with this exact case
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Nah hog tie the cables
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I'd like one with support for a couple 3.5" bays though
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    not that, some psu like those corsair rm series stock cables have very big knicks that make it impossible to fit in there
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    my friend had to order some custom cables for it
