    Hey everyone, quick question. Been getting into .cia and its great just wondering, if I wanted to upgrade my SD card for bigger storage can i backup the stuff on the old SD card and put it in the new one? Or do I also have to rerun the gateway hack as well
    EDIT: sorry I just saw someone ask this same question, please feel free to get rid of this thread.

    Just clone the SD card's partition to the bigger card, then extend the partition to fill the rest of the free space. That's what I did with mine, going from the lame 4GB Class 4 card, to a new Class 6 16GB card.

    (I used a paid version of AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro, but free alternatives like Gparted work fine too.)
