    Hi guys, I've been running RXTools on an O3DS for over a year near now. Unfortunately, I didn't really keep up with the homebrew scene at all and sadly updated tonight. I was just acclimated to updating fine for the past year with no problems, but now I can no longer boot into RXtools. My sysNAND is completely intact and so are the files on my SD card.

    My question is are my save files lost? Is there no way at all for me to transfer them over to, say, A9LH?

    UPDATE: The issue has been resolved. With the help of the friendly, smart, and very patient user SirECK in the GBATemp Discord. I switched to LUMA and was able to keep my saves intact. Thanks for the replies everyone! I'll make sure to not make the mistake of not reading before updating again.

    a9lh is just a hack to bypass some sig check. The game saves are still on your emunand so I think there is hope. Since I have never been in this boat I can only speculate on what to do so bare with me.
    RXTools is dead on 11.3 because nintendo patched something. So first question. Do you have a nand working backup of your emunand pre 11.3?

    Thought. If you restore your 11.3 emuand to nand on your 3ds with a9lh, in theory it would boot just the same. emunand is just a copy of nand running on the sd card.
    Doing this should be fine as long as you have a backup of your real nand.

    Also whats your system running? ver?

    Thank you so much for the prompt reply! I do have a file called NAND.bin on my PC in a folder called RXtools, although I'm not positive if this is a backup of the sysnand or emunand.

    You can always extract your emunand from the sd card with a software tool

    Just switch to Luma, then you can boot into your emuNAND with no worries. You don't have to have a9lh.
