    Hi all,

    I have made two sysNAND backups as per the final steps of the guide (https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/Part-5-(arm9loaderhax-&-AuReiNand)#)

    These keep coming out as approximately 1.93GB.

    Do I keep trying until I finally get one which matches either of those listed?

    I understand that I need this, guessing without it, if I ever have to revert back to an older SysNAND I can use one of the ones I have, but will need to go through the rigmarole of hacking the system again?

    Joe

    Try renaming it emuNAND.bin and restore it in EmuNAND with D9WIP and/or OTPHelper and/or anything else... (before,be sure you dumped your emuNAND)

    What's 3ds system model?

    Right click > properties. Windows explorer has a weird way of rounding file sizes.

    Or verify your NAND size by using D9WIP -> Maintainance -> system info

    Right clicked and went to properties, the size is 1.84GB. So is this correct?

    I do have some other questions about this new CFW.

    IF I was ever to install something which potentially bricked the system (not looking to do so), is my system now recoverable via the new softmod CFW?

    1.84 gigabytes is correct.

    Yes, assuming you don't overwrite FIRM0/1 you can launch D9 on boot.

    Yes correct if you have a new 3DS Toshiba NAND: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/NAND-Size#new-3ds

    Thanks, so is this via the hold X / Y boot methods which have been installed?

    What installation do you mean?

    So, on the last few steps. You had to reboot the system but hold X or Y depending on what step I was on.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I was under the assumption that these bootable options (providing they are on the SD card) would assist if something went wrong?

    With aureiNAND, you can boot aurei/playloads/button.bin directly.

    If you bricked with intact FIRM partition,you an simply restore a previous NAND with D9 as arm9loaderhax.bin.
