    Hello,

    Is it possible to upgrade SD cards and then copy the game/cfw files over? Or do i have to restart the cfw process?

    I have a new nintendo 3ds.

    Thank you!

    If you followed 3ds.guide and you didn't create an emunand afterwards just copy-paste everything from the old SD to the new SD.
    Simple and easy

    If you formatted your old SD card you lost your games and saves, unless you made a backup before formatting.
    You can still use a new and larger SD by simply copying latest Luma3ds' arm9loaderhax and the "luma" folder in your new card; then just restore the "3ds" folder if you use homebrew and you shoud good to go
