    Hey

    I have backed up my sysNAND using the gateway and obviously need to back this up. I have copied the SD card to my computer and would expect to find my sysNAND as a file when browsing the contents.... Where is it?!

    Thanks in advance.

    It is a file called NAND.bin.

    Any idea where this would be within the structure? I swear I have been through and can't see it. I can see phtcache.bin within a folder titled "private"

    It looks like this should be saved at the root but I can't see it. Reluctant to go further until I find him. I might have to try with another SD card.

    Nand.bin isn't on your card by default. You have to use an application like GW to create a backup of your sysnand. Nand.bin is what the file is called after the backup has completed.

    Read it, but apparently not too closely. Missed the part where he said he already backed it up. Give me a break...it's early and I haven't had enough caffeine. :bow:
