    Somewhere, out there...
    My N3DS has A9LH and Luma installed. I recently backed up my SysNAND, I think I used Godmode9 for it. Anyway, the NAND file size is 1.84GB... Does that size sound correct? Thoughts appreciated :)

    Note: I tried to attach computer screen capture, but file was too big for here...

    You must've used Decrypt9, not GodMode9. Also, I use Imgur to upload pictures to and then link them inside a spoiler.

    As for the file size, 1.84GB sounds correct according to this.
    My backups are 1.2GB in size which means I have a different type of NAND chip from yours.

    Depends upon numerous variables such as the difference of what it exactly backed up on each of them or if you did a full or min size backup for examples.

    From your explanation, I personally think that you might have just had more stuff to backup the second time because your 3DS NAND chip just can't suddenly "change" from one to another.
