    Yes, if you use Gateway or Sky3DS and play online without using a private header.

    Your saves from CIA installs are stored on your SD card and encrypted. You won't lose them by changing your CFW or entrypoints. If you're worried, you can always back them up with JKSM before making changes to your setup. The only time you'll lose those saves is by formatting your SD card or uninstalling the game.

    Saves from Gateway .3DS roms are encrypted differently than CIA saves and cannot be used interchangeably without a conversion to the correct format.

    Actually, you'll have to find another method for updating, since the current version of Luma does not allow you to update from system settings

    It's not necessary to update, it just allows you to go online without running anything else. You should finish the guide (or google SysUpdater, which means you'll have to get the update manually with 3DNUS)

    You should though. It's a pain that you have to update manually but you can still update fine

    Don't worry, I'm just as new as you (I hardly understand it)! This is the page for SysUpdater: https://github.com/profi200/sysUpdaterhttps://github.com/profi200/sysUpdater

    It takes a few minutes, but getting the FW is the hard part. 3DNUS (The program most people use to download FW's) has had its servers down for quite a while. You'll have to get them from pirated sources, AFAIK.

    There might be another way, if so, someone who knows can feel free to correct me!

    Do you have a source for this? This is the first I've heard of this and people have been updating their system with the latest Luma for awhile now and have never complained of updating issues. :/ Hell, 3ds.guide would mention if it wasn't safe to update. I think you've gotten your facts messed up.

    Oh well then, I found it on the Luma thread and mine didn't work so I assumed.

    I am apparently wrong, since I had blocked some Nintendo url's back in the Wii U days and forgot

    Uggggh, was system transferring from N3DSXL to another N3DSXL and got to

    https://3ds.guide/installing-boot9strap-(dsiware-game-injection)

    7. Launch b9sTool by starting your DSiWare game on the target 3DS

    But that DSIWare game isn't on my target 3DS... I removed the target 3DS's sd card and replaced it with the source sd card, selected move DSIWare titles... so why isn't it there? What should I do?

    Geeeeeez, wouldn't have thought this... but as I had ~30 games installed on the old/source system and the DSIWare game was the latest one I installed.... The game was actually on my device, but was so far right on the home screen that I did not see it. Once I found the icon and launched the game, it worked fine.

    I got Pokemon Sun and Alpha Ruby saying that "the saved data is not compatible with this version" is there any way to fix that.

    Hello, I am using the the https://3ds.guide/ guide and I am at the last part of the the guide (https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup). Specifically at the Section III - Launching FBI part.
    When i try to launch the Download Play application for the second time i get an error message (http://imgur.com/a/ukTmE). What should I do now ? :)
    I have the New 3ds xl and I have been following the guide without a problem until now. Thanks for your reply
