    Hey guys, I was just installing themehax, but when I was moving files on my SD card, I accidentally merged the "Nintendo 3ds" and "private" folders and I need help to fix them.

    What do you mean by you "merged" them?

    I dragged the contents of the Nintendo 3ds folder into the private folder.

    Can't you just copy and paste them back?

    'Nintendo 3DS' folder goes at the root of the SD card.

    the scrambled letters and numbers folder goes into the Nintendo 3DS folder.

    Easy.

    Ok, I put the scrambled files in the Nintendo 3ds folder and I have a "private" folder at the root containing "Private" and "app" sub folders.

    Nope, it still didn't work. This is so strange, as I have always had the "private" folder at the root.

    Can you redownload your apps from the eshop? I would suggest starting afresh, but if you need to stay on a low firmware... (then again, there's EmuNAND...)

    I have literally 30 apps, and lots of save data, so restarting is a huge last resort for me.

    Honestly, I'm out of ideas. Did you accidentally rename one of the scrambled folders? That's all I can think of.

    That could be it. If I did, would I be screwed?

    Possibly.

    Though, do you have any backups of the contents of your SD card lying around anywhere?
