    Correct me if I've made a mistake.

    AuRei SysNand = Pasta ?

    Proof:

    GW and Cakes sysnand can load unsigned code such as HBL cia, but no CFW entrance.
    With AuRei 9.2 SysNand, I can enter GW and Rxtools with HBL loader, using 3dsx file.
    Also, minipasta works this way.
    (Nowadays, there is no A9LH entrance pasta)

    So I feels that AuRei SysNand has no differences from Pasta.
    It can also be used for updating or downgrading sysnand with sysupdater.

    Am I right ?

    AuRei's Updated Sysnand mode locks writing to firm0/1, so it can be updated while keeping your hax and cfw, which means there's no need for emunand anymore.

    Pasta simply boots sysnand with patched signature checks, if you update, you WILL lose your hacked stuff

    There's this beautiful thing called a firmware.bin that allows you to do all kinds of things, for example, run launchers! The reason why cakesfw and GW can't run launchers is because the patches they have screw that stuff up iirc, but Aurienand doesn't have said patches that screw it up.
