    and everything goes smooth n peachy until you try to backup your emunand to later restore on your Sysnand, only to find out the SD has corrupted sectors and can't backup, and lose YEARs of game save T_________________T

    Did you try making a 1-1 image of the card and restoring it to another card?

    Pro tip: Every two weeks backups your saves with JKSM.

    Back up important saves with JKSM before beginning. The guide recommends this in case of any failure.

    the kicker is i thought i had an emunand back up, turns out i deleted it sometime during a clean up, and then i thought, well my NAND backup from my previous Rxtool setup should have some saves, turns out it didn't lol T_T
    never realized unlinking NANDS erases your saves on NAND ...
