    Not that I'm aware of, but there are likely to be some in the future.

    almost done! Restored my EMUNAND on SYSNAND and I have to do the luma CTRNAND step..
    is there any way to use my gateway 3DS on luma? I don't have enough space on my card for my games I have and I used the gateway to give me additional games..if not that's cool..is there a way to check what version of luma i'm on in system settings?...it looks almost like stock so i'm a little paranoid just a bit..

    You can dual boot, but GW only supports up to 11.2 and if you boot later firmwares (starting at 11.something I believe) on GW sysNAND B9S will be wiped so you'll need an emuNAND.

    As I mentioned earlier, it is highly recommended that you ditch Gateway completely. It's barely supported, and using it improperly could result in the accidental removal of B9S, causing you to lose access to both Luma3DS and Gateway.

    Not really, if you don't mind running ctr-httpwn in order to play online.

    once you successfully install bs9 its recommended to update the max so you can play online if you choose and get updates from games naively from shop

    When you turn on your 3DS, you can hold Select to view which version of Luma3DS you're using at the top of the configuration settings. If you just followed the guide, you're likely on Luma3DS 8.1.

    Edit: You can run Gateway, but it's not recommended for the reason's I've already listed: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-using-luma3ds-gateway-on-b9s.431691/

    i haven't used gaetway in such a long time but i do know it's not recommended anymore. If your concerned about your saves and backups you can backup and convert them to cia format and inject your saves

    You can make an emuNAND that you use only with Gateway, and update your sysNAND.
    It'd probably be a good idea to format the emuNAND with TinyFormat if you do that, so that your installed CIAs aren't rewrapped every time you switch between them.

    If SD space is an issue, I would just make your Gateway SD card become your primary 3DS SD card. The use of Gateway necessitates a convoluted mess, and I don't recommend it.

    You may want to re-install System Settings, as you said you were using the DS Profile Exploit/MSET.

    simply running a ds game accomplishes this goal

    That removes the MSET exploit (basically removes what GW_INSTALLER.nds installed), but OP mentioned he has a New 3DS on 9.0.0, meaning he installed the older System Settings CIA file with Gateway when that was still a thing.

    Good idea. I got everything working except one thing...my gateway MicroSD card and my MicroSD card I used for storage is larger however all my games and ext data are on the smaller one....any way where I can possibly transfer my data over to the larger card that I used for gateway purposes?

    I might be misunderstanding your problem, but you could delete everything from the Gateway SD card, and then you could copy everything from the other SD card over to the Gateway SD card.

    Seriously? That's it? Doesn't the 3DS have its own DRM which locks card data to a SD card until it's wiped? Or is that negated with CFW ;)
