    Make sure you're using winrar to extract files and the password is gbatemp.

    Thank you for this. I've been meaning to go through with this for a while now, but yifan_lu's 8.1 to 9.2 tutorial scared the hell out of me with setting up web servers and the like. There just had to be an easier way!

    Yes, if I try to extract it says unknown method, no files to extract with WinRAR..
    Same for older versions..
    I do see the files however and it's 500-600kb.

    Install this winrar if you have a 32bit PC
    and this one if you have a 64 bit PC

    If winrar is not working for you try using 7zip

    I sincerely don't know what I'm doing wrong, I've tried your method multiple times, both with the .cia files you provide and the .cia files that a certain iso site provides, and none of them work. I get to the point where the emunand says its setting up the Home Menu, and then after that progress bar fills, its just black, every time. What the hell am I doing wrong? I'm at such a loss here.

    The SysUpdater installer as recommended in the intro post. I had tried it with The Any Title Installer before that but it would give me an error on the first .cia that it was invalid

    I was able to do this last night exactly like the above directions state, along with the help by Simplicity and Xenon Hacks, and it worked perfectly. No hiccups at all. My emuNAND is now on 9.5.

    This leaves me with a few questions though...

    1. Doesn't the Gateway do firmware spoofing? I tried Puzzle & Dragons normally on my 9.0 system and it asks to update to 9.5. then i tried through Gateway (emuNAND 9.0) and it loaded perfectly. So do we really need to update?

    2. If I no longer want cia files on my N3DS, how do I delete them? Is there something special I need to do or can I just delete them like a normal demo?

    The CIA update files can be deleted from your sd card after your done they are no longer needed, if your talking about games,demos,apps just go to system setting while in Emunand go to data management and uninstall what you no longer want.

    So I don't have to delete cia files through BigBlueMenu or the like. I can delete something like sysUpdater through the normal system way but while in emuNAND.

    Sound right.

    Nah, just talking exploit/hacker stuff. Like BigBlueMenu and sysUpdater. Seems that every time that I go back into emuNAND that they return to gifts and I have to open them up. Annoying and thought that I might as well just dump them.

    That means your Nands are still linked use the search function, unlinking them is fairly simple.

    Saw this earlier...

    To separate emunand from sysnand, boot into sysnand, go to settings and on the last page (with the format option). Once you're there, remove the SD Card from the 3DS then format the 3DS (it'll require an internet connection but won't update, don't worry). Once it's formatted, the 3DS will reboot. Once it's rebooted and the 3DS is on again, put the SD Card back in the 3DS, then do the first setup again. Once the setup is done, it'll create a new folder (different from emunand).

    After that, it's done, your sysnand and emunand are separated and configuration on one (theme, settings, programs) won't affect the other one, and you won't have to unwrap your gift each time you boot.

    Look right?
