    Hey I have several questions: :)<br /><br />1. Is there any way to use Action Replay Codes in .cia installed games when you use Luma and A9LH?<br />2. I have hacked my Nintendo 2DS. I ordered a bigger SD Card now. How do I transfer everything? I mean the system, CFW, a9lh just everything? Do I have to redo all that stuff on my new sd card?<br />3. There are alot of homebrew applications. What do you guys use on your console which is useful?<br /><br />Thanks. :)

    Nobody answered in the noob paradise thread. :(

    Action Replay codes on 3DS: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nitrohax-homebrew-action-replay-alternative-now-working-as-a-cia.438638/

    If you want to switch SD cards, all you have to do is transfer the files. If you have an emunand, make a backup of it and create new on the second card, then restore the backup. (If you followed Plailect's guide, you don't have an emunand).

    Edit2: Sorry, made a mistake. To use cheats on cia games, you need NTR custom firmware. It doesn't use action replay codes, although I don't think AR works with 3ds games.

    Simply plug both sd cards into your computer. Then highlight all the files on the old sd card that has all your files, copy them, and paste them onto your new sd card.

    Nothing at else to do, it's completely safe. People buy new sd cards all the time and it changes nothing (besides the amount of storage).

    For good apps you should just dig through the forum and install what you like. Start with Freeshop / Ciangel and maybe look into Romhacks through Hans, install something like bootanim9 or ctr9, install homebr3w and scroll through it and look if you find something interesting and so on. There are many good apps here by many skilled devs

    The new sd card should be formatted as fat32. I recommend the following homebrew:
    - JKSV
    - chmm2
    - custom badges give me that badge
    - homebrew launcher
    - check out some emulators
    - star updater for"(luma3ds updater)
    - freeshop
    - encTitleKeyUpdater for freeshop
    - ftpd
    - fbi
    If you play pokemon:
    - pchex++
    - poke homebrew bank
    - ntr cfw

    The formatting part applies mostly to sd cards over 32 gb. If you order one of these, then before transferring the files do the following:

    1. Download emunand9 and place it in the luma/payloads folder of the OLD sd card under the name y_Emu9.bin.
    2. Boot up your 3ds while holding y.
    Press select, which will unmount your sd card. Now you can remove the old sd card from the 3ds.
    3. Insert the new sd card and click select again.
    4. Navigate to sd format options and choose format without emunand/rednand.
    5. Your card is now formatted. Go ahead and transfer the files

    Edit: Be careful not to choose format without emu/rednand while the old sd card is there, or you may lose all your files.

    unless you use an emunand setup, which you shouldn't have after the a9hl guide, its as easy as copying everything to the new card.
    just make sure not to put the new card in the 2ds before you put all the files on it

    Hm Okay it's a 32 gb card. Do I still need to format or can I just put it in? :)

    All sd cards must be formatted as fat32 for the 3ds to be able to work with it.

    It should be fine, but formatting will do it no harm. It's really up to you.

    Pretty 100% sure they need to be fat32 to work with the 3ds if they're 32GB or bigger. But sure, go ahead and try.

    They're FAT when they're 2GB / 4GB / 16GB. They're FAT32 when they're 32GB / 64GB / 128GB / 256GB.
