    Yes, my NANDs are unlinked. I have a n3DS 9.2.0-20U sysNAND and 10.5.0-30U emuNAND with reiNAND 3.2.
    This is the third time I've set up an emuNAND on a downgraded 3DS, so I'm not that new to this.

    My problem is that whenever I try to install a theme in emuNAND, it appears to change the emuNAND theme - until I reboot. Then I see that the sysNAND theme was changed instead, and when I get menuhax set up again and boot into emuNAND, it has a blank theme, and I have to unwrap all my downloaded games and installed CIAs again. I have tried both CHMM2 through the hblauncher_loader CIA, which has worked before, and through an installed CIA made with Howling Theme Tool.

    I don't know if this affects anything, but in the middle of downgrading, SafeSysUpdater crashed, and I got a frankenfirmware. It thought my version was still 9.8, and none of the system titles would launch, including the browser. However I have OoT3D and was able to get back into homebrew and complete the downgrade. Again, I don't know if this affects anything but I do know that the more information, the better.

    Why don't you try to make the themes into .cia files and install them? Also, do you enter the homebrew launcher in sysnand or in emunand? If you do it before you see the reinand image, it's sysnand. Care with that.

    Are you sure your NANDs are unlinked? This ^ should only happen if they're linked.

    I don't think your nands are unlinked. If they were, sysnand theme would not change. unless you have it set to the theme shuffle option.

    I did try to make the themes into CIA files. And I'm absolutely sure that I entered the homebrew launcher in emuNAND; the hblauncher CIA is only installed there.
    If my NANDs are linked, would I be able to update emuNAND without updating sysNAND? I used TinyFormat to unlink my emuNAND.

    I don't think so. Just unlink them, it's not hard. You just have to format sysNand, and setup a HB Entrypoint again.

    He said he used tinyformat already so his nands are unlinked.

    Yes, you would.
    I don't know exactly what you did, but there's no way this would happen if your NANDs were unlinked, so I suggest you unlink them again and see if the issue still persists.

    Well, I could have sworn that I had unlinked them. That worked. Sorry for all the trouble.
