    Something about dsiware/gba reading sysnand for the game to reboot into that mode.

    The real question is, why do you still use emuNAND?

    Apparently emuNAND is safer than SysNAND.

    The real question is, no one cares about you, emuNAND is better.

    You just need to install them on system nand and emunand then you can boot them in emunand

    GBA VC and DS/DSi games reboot into AGB_FIRM and TWL_FIRM, respectively. There are no emuNAND patches for them, therefore they can only access sysNAND.

    Depends on what you do. There have been reports of people breaking a9lh, not able to boot a thing even though they use it regularly. With emunand no matter what, its impossible to brick

    Hahahaha NO, emunand it's just an outdated, dumb people's way to not mess with things, but proved uncompatible and impractical, it's matter of time those issues make the method obsolete.

    You can only mess up your sysnand when you already have a9lh v2 installed if you're dumb enough to read imo

    "Don't do this or you'll brick!"
    *Does it anyway*
    "Oh no, it bricked, emunand is better"

    when launching dsiware/gba games, it launches a new FIRM, this causes sort of a system reboot, relaunching to sysnand.

    Correct me if I'm wrong

    This is another case of ignorance. Its WBFS vs FAT. BETA vs VHS. Emunand is slower, less reliable, and more complicated. Did I mention slower? Emunand is also harder on your sd. BUT it leaves the nand alone. This has some benefits. If you are experimenting with new,potentially dangerous stuff maybe.. If you want multipule nands as well then you can do that. But where you guys miss is A9LH WORKS WITH EMUNAND! What you need to truly ditch is MENUHAX! IT SUCKS. DITCH YOUR BETAMAX ALREADY All I see here is , I like my shitty unreliable menuhax.! Luma and A9LH supports 4 emu nands. then from there you can copy over one of your emunands to the sysnand and try it. you wont go back but you can! Stop whining, put on your big boy pants. Do you like installing things twice? Failed boots? Everything in general being slower? Then keep emunand. A9LH has the ability to restore your bricked nand. Think bootmii. You all are just scared to drive in the fast lane. Don't complain when you can't restore a backup or if your SD dies from CONSTANT read/writes.

    That's not even a question. It was a terribly failed attempt at humor.

    I can tell, because the only funny thing about all this is the fact that you insist to defend EmuNAND over SysNAND CFW.

    Say that if you wish, but back it up with something. After all it's simply an opinion. EmuNAND most certainly has it's flaws, one of those being discussed here in this very thread. Safety wise, It doesn't really protect your CFW any better than A9LH does, and they both have advantages and disadvantages.

    I do not want to defend so much to emunand, but the two are pretty much the same thing. Just a CFW to install pirated applications just want to play or is THE SAME THING.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The only disadvantages I see is the delay in the boot and the games of DSI and GBA, but I do not care about the delay in the boot, and I do not play DSI nor GBA, if it is to play GBA I play in xbox I always liked to play more Gba in the emulator XD

    Here we go, another thread on which is better. Can't we just leave this as it is and leave it to peoples personal preference??? BOTH GIVE PEOPLE THE ABILITY TO PIRATE!!! Why tf does it honestly matter how they do it?

    -Emunand is older, is harder on the SD, but eaisiest to set up, doesn't require 2.1 downgrade for o3ds, but requires 1-2 GB of SD, dependent on 3ds model, slower boot, easily restorable no matter how much you muck it up, more reliable for the noobish for initial setup cause of the zero brick chance, can have multiple which is the closest to owning 2 or more 3ds's

    -A9lh grants faster boot times and no double space for gba-dsi roms, but on o3ds requires a 2.1 downgrade, runs from sysnand, higher brick chance during setup, firm protection, more reliable for smaller children who might update

    Pros and cons of both, now why can't we leave it to each individual to decide which they want?? And lets not forget the magic word here: both. If you really cant decide which is better, you can go ahead and install BOTH.There is no need for people to get so hostile for either way of cfw
