    finally i did dd command, i don't know how i got it worked after several trials formatting and re-partition ...etc it's work and copied emummc.bin file to sd card second partition. now i copied ams and hekate files to sd card but i'm confused should i create emunand from hekate menu or only launch it from hekate?

    That's great! You've already created the emunand by running the dd command, you don't have to do anything special from Hekate. If you followed the instructions correctly, you should have a sector position, make sure your emummc config is set up correctly!

    what is the required configuration exactly? i copied hekate and atmosphere files to SD card and create folder emummc and inside it i created emummc.ini file and write the hexadecimal value for sector number of second partition

    You should be good to go now, what happens if you launch CFW from Hekate?

    Now when i press to launch emunand from hekate it reboot and show atmosphere logo, also at system info version is 4.1.0 (ams 0.9.2) but when I change switch name at emunand it changed also at ofw I think it should be different, right? Another thing is at hekate emunand is disabled. I’m afraid that it may be running on a cfw instead of emunand, please advise?

    You're right, it's running CFW on your SysNAND and not your emuNAND then. For some reason Atmosphere isn't picking up your emummc config.

    Windows often hides extensions for known file types, can you try using command prompt and "DIR" to verify that your emummc.ini file is actually named emummc.ini and not emummc.ini.ini? I've seen that mistake made here more than once.

    You're sure you've got the right hexadecimal number for your partition, and didn't just copy one off an example?

    You should be able to go into Hekate/Nyx and select the partition you want emummc to be enabled. So select the partition and enable it.

    i can't enable it, it is dimmed should i create emunand from hekate to enable it?, also the hexadecimal value is the same as SD RAW 1 sector start, ini file configuration is
    "
    [emummc]
    emummc_enabled = 1
    emummc_sector = 0xB980800
    emummc_nintendo_path = EmuNAND
    "
    Hekate.

    Assuming you have emummc.ini inside /emuMMC/ it is wrong. In Atmosphere 0.9.3 the format should be like this:


    [emummc]
    enabled=1
    sector=0xB980800
    path=emuMMC/RAW1
    id=0x0000
    nintendo_path=emuMMC/RAW1/Nintendo

    Try making that directory. If it doesn't work, then something about how the Emummc data was written is probably messed up.

    try deleting Ox in front of B980800. Otherwise definitely rewrite the boot0+1+nand.bins to the sector. Using DD app works.

    Actually. You should be able to delete and recreate the emummc partition using a partitioning software, then use hekate/nyx to create+enable emummc. That tends to be the most fool-proof way.

    I tried to use hekate/nyx to create+enable emummc earlier before using dd method with same results, this is the main issue i have when using hekate to create emummc it’s created successfully but when trying to launch it reboot into hekate again also after using dd command and update ini file as your advise it reboots to hekate again, I don’t know what is the problem? is it the firmware version or something wrong i do?

    Security. Broken emunand is easy to fix. Sysnand is easy but involves extra work

    No. Making a sysNAND backup and restoring it if there's a problem is less cumbersome than setting up an emuNAND.

    There is always a small risk for bad media or data corruption while restoring a backup. Emunand/emummc is safer.

    You have the same risks with an emuNAND, and using an emuNAND increases the risk of an SD card going bad.
