    Hi guys, I installed a9lh/luma cfw to my 2DS (11.0.33E) yesterday. I am planning to change my 4GB SD to a 32 GB one. So, how can i transfer files and cfw (sysnand) to my new SD. Is there any tutorials about it ? If there is where can i find it ?

    Just drag all the files and folders from the SD card to your desktop then back to the new SD card.

    I moved from a 64 to a 128 - simple drag and drop worked fine for me.

    Format the SD card in FAT32 (should be the default in Windows, because your SD is not bigger than 32GB, but check just in case, don't use NTFS)
    Copy the files from one SD to the other (drag and drop)
    And that is it.

    (if you wanted to update to a SD bigger than 32GB then you would need a special tool to format it to FAT32, but it is not your case)

    You need to make a backup of your EmuNAND, create an EmuNAND in your new microSD and restore the backup (you can also restore it to SysNAND). After that, just copy/paste all files.

    If the new card is larger than 32gb, you must format it as fat32 with 64k cluster size. I used this

    Then you don't have to make a backup.
    The process with emunand is harder, but thankfully emunand is not used as much anymore.
