    Maybe i'm not the only one, i'm using SX-OS and i have installed some .nsp on my emuNAND just to be safe, then, all of a sudden, when i turn on my Switch it says that "The current game isn't available, download it now" and now i have to re-install every nsp. Any idea why? OF COURSE my emuNAND is 100% offline. Never been online with it.

    Mine did the same when I connected online, not sure if it was real nand or the emunand though. Just know it did the same to me.

    if you start ofw or cfw's like reinx with sd card inserted then switch will wipe your nintendo folder claiming "it was used on another switch" ;)
    if you want start system from your NAND i sugest to take a emunand sd card out. cheers

    Real NAND. I tried to connect to the e shop with sysNAND. After that my emuNAND .nsp were all gone.

    Sorry about the earlier comment. Unnecessary on my part.
    Not sure about the difference between Real NAND, sysNAND and emuNAND. I'll do some research - which I should have done in the first place!

    "Real NAND" and Sysnand are the same thing. Emunand(Or TX's version of it at least) is a shadow copy of your Sysnand that runs from the Sysnand itself but is independent from the sysnand

    TX might not test and experience enough about linking nands when creating emunand. And there doesn't have any well guide or user's manual from them yet and won't have to.

    The reason why your installed games on emunand has randomly archived is that when creating emunand, the two nands share the same Nintendo folder which is the same hash, encryption or something like that. The two nands won't share the same ticketblob, so that when emunand installed more games than sysnand or vise versa when booting sysnand without those installed games on its ticketblob, all installed games on emunand will be wiped out completely.

    I'll test this ASAP. It's a shame how Xecuter throw something huge like emuNAND without explaining anything

    I'm still thinking though. I went to my sysNAND many times after i set up my emuNAND and nothing happened. It was just this time, one of the many, that my nsp collection got wiped out. What happened in specific?

    That's just asking for a ban

    Pure sysnand after creating emunand is safe enough to avoid ban.

    No, no it's not. Even TX themselves say to use Stealth Mode and not go online. Creating an emunand and doing stuff on it isn't going to protect you from a ban, that's not it's intended purpose at all

    - Bad scenario
    If you're using SX with strange error logs and connect online you'd be banned already.

    Keep in mind that the main reason to have emunand is to keep sysnand on low firmware or to go online on pure sysnand.

    If you're on the second half of the reason and your nand is full of strange error logs/ never connect online before, you'd have to delete ticketblob and error logs using hacdiskmount to mount SYSTEM

    Delete these files
    Error logs
    SYSTEM/save/80000000000000D1
    Common/Personlized ticketblob
    SYSTEM/save/80000000000000e1
    SYSTEM/save/80000000000000e2

    Do factory restore settings offline.

    You now have pure sysnand.

    Nom the purpose of Emunand is, like you said, to keep your sysnand on a lower version while updating just the emunand to the latest version. Also keep in mind that a complete absence of error logs will also get you flagged and eventually banned. the only ways to go online safely is either
    A)don't hack AT ALL
    B)have a pre hack backup of your NAND and restore to it whenever you want to go online

    You're on the first reason.
    You're banned yourself.
    I'm on the second one. I cleaned up every single error logs from day 1 of nx-dreport/ Hekate. Not banned yet.

    Anyway, to the OP, you can try to do factory restore settings offline on sysnand to unlink the two nands and to avoid any wiping out data. Rename Nintendo folder to NintendoEmu before doing factory restore settings or just unplug memory card.

    Actually emunand purpose is to help prevent a ban too. Since it separates the naughty stuff from your sysnand. Aslong as you use the emunand offline or with stealth mode enabled, you should be ok.
