Warning! NEMS-Migrator is currently in development for the new NEMS 1.3 release. Please deploy to a different SD card and keep a backup. Please help me with the NEMS-Migrator development by posting your experience in the forum (whether good or bad). With your feedback I'll be able to expedite the rollout of any updates required for NEMS-Migrator. (It's hard for me to test for every scenario, so having your real-world backup.nems files and nems-restore experience really helps.)

Buy The Hardware

Raspberry Pi 3 are very affordable, and using the NEMS image, you simply buy the device, “burn” the image to the Micro SD card, and boot it up.

Here’s our link to buy the device you’ll need, complete with the Micro SD card, a power adapter, a good solid case, and more:

Please buy it through that link, or let me know if you need a customized link to a different model. We get a small percentage of the sale, and it helps to make it possible to offer NEMS as a free download.

Psst! NEMS 1.3 was a boatload of work. If you appreciate the nights of cuddles my wife lost, please help me treat her to a very nice romantic dinner by throwing something in the tip jar.
