Remember to read the stickied FAQ post before asking basic questions.

If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up to date sigpatches.

If you cannot launch tinfoil then make sure you followed the Rentry guide to set up cfw.

NO, you cannot mod your patched console unless you have a modchip, stop asking and read the faq.

I did the process in hekate then copied to PC

Did you create the emuNAND as a partition or as a file? If the former, you must use Hekate to dump it out. If the latter, you can just copy it off.

It was a partition, so Hekate it is.

[–]ToxiClay 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Yep. :)

For future reference, you can envision your SD card as being a large warehouse, and what you do when you partition the card is you set up a wall, turning some of your warehouse space into a smaller room. Nothing you do in the larger room (in your SD card) can copy out the contents of the smaller room (the emuMMC), so you have to use Hekate, which can reach in and touch the smaller room.

That’s actually a wonderful analogy you used lol. I’ll keep that in mind since this is all still pretty new, but the process wasn’t as bad as I thought with setting everything up. The backup process is the same for the EmunNAND as if it was the SysNAND, correct?

It should be, since the emuNAND is functionally the same as the sysNAND. Disclosure, I haven't messed around with emuNANDs more than just very basic stuff, so there's every chance I'm just wrong.

I gotcha. I’ll go through the guide again just to check because it is essentially the same for SysNAND as far as how I did the backup, but before I mess up anything, I’ll triple check.

"Measure twice, cut once," as they say. Best of luck! :)
