    Soo, my new SD card is arriving today, and i was wondering what i should do.

    Currently im using RxTools 2.6, but i was thinking of going 3.0. Any advantages/disadvantages? Are they compatible?

    > Put Gateway launcher on SD
    > Install EmuNAND
    > Make Rxtools 3.0 Launcher dat
    > Replace it with Gateway launcher
    > Once its all working, extract old EmuNAND from old SD
    > Import it on the new SD

    Is this the right approach?

    Gambia, The
    You dont have to format Emunand anew.
    Just replace the rxTools folder on your SD card. In 2.6 you had the firmware.bin in the root of your SD card, afaik this has changed for all version 2.6< by either: Putting the firmware.bin into rxTools/sys or the firmware.bin being replaced by a folder firm that has to be put into rxTools/sys (check out the description in the nightly build you want to use).
    Also the browser adress to launch rxTools changed in version 2.6< from launch.rxtools.net to https://dukesrg.github.io/?rxTools/sys/code.bin

    I'm guessing it's more stable? Also, if you get a firm folder don't place it to rxTools/sys but directly in your rxTools folder :) And there is no need to create any rxTools launcher.dat file, it's only used to start the gateway menu.

    Okay, then yes, you have to format emuNand on your new SD card.

    Best you follow the steps here:

    If you do all these steps and in the end just copy all of the contents of your old SD Card on your new SD card it should work just fine (I did this myself not too long ago).

    After that you can update rxTools to 3.0, if you want.
    If you just want it to work, you can stop right here and dont bother.
