    Is there an app that let's you unmount your sd card and pause your state while your sd card is out and then be able to resume when you remount it? I remember the emunand9 tool had this feature and I'm just wondering if there's an app out there that lets you do that because I do a lot of transferring back and forth from my pc to my sd and I constantly have to unmount and remount my sd card. I don't want to be constantly restarting my 3ds

    If you're using the new 3ds, use the wireless transfer option

    I'm aware of ftp apps and other apps that lets you transfer back and forth wireless, but sometimes some files are just too big and takes too long

    I believe there isn't one, and if there were you would have to boot into homebrew or have CFW. Which requires boot...

    and if you remove sd in cfw you emunand freezes as it cant load files from nand

    I'm running cfw currenty and the reason why I'm looking for one is because once you're booted into emunand and you unmount you sd card, it gives you an error

    But some other apps like emunand9 running via homebrew allowed you to umount your sd card and not give you error. So wouldn't it be possible in emunand then?

    No emuNAND is an SD card mounted FW, and homebrew is also on your SD card

    read my above post

    the only reason emu9nand doest is because it its small enough to run in the ram when you remove SD card so it van run its script.
    that and you run it from sysnand so your FW doesnt unmount itself when you remove card


    The difference in terms you will understand.


    When you run Emu9nand from sysnand its like being Alive and awake and Changing Clothes.

    The difference from removing SD from EMUnand, is being alive and awake and something completley removing your Brain

    Since EMUnand is completely running from SD card its permanently accessing it. Guess what happens when you remove it
