    Hello! I have recently seen that a lot of noobs have been asking "Halp wat 2 do if i get new sd card and i have a9hl & cfw"
    Well, this will show you the (easy) steps of doing this.

    Requirements:
    1. A 3DS (duh)
    2. Your old SD Card
    3. Your new SD Card
    4. A way to transfer files between SD cards (smartphone, computer, etc.)
    Steps:
    Step 1. Take old SD card out of 3DS
    Step 2. Connect the old SD card to device.
    Step 3. Backup all the data on the SD card.
    Step 4. Disconnect old SD, then reconnect new SD
    Step 4.1. If SD Card is 64GB+, you need to format it to fat32 and 32k cluster size.
    Step 5. Put all the files back onto the new SD card
    Step 6. Insert new SD card into 3DS
    Step 7. Done!​
    That is pretty much it. Also, the reason why I'm not posting in the tutorial section is because I feel that noobs never look there.

    Thanks!

    You didn't mention formatting the card if it's 64+ GB.
