    Hello,

    a few days ago i found out about the new update for gateway (2.5 OMEGA) and i am wondering if i update if i will lose my game save data. If yes, how do i prevent it and will all my old stuff function after the update?

    Also i was wondering if the game tomodachi life will work on the new update. it didnt work on the old one because the firmware was too old.

    No, you will not lose your saves (Unless you're still on pre-omega firmware, then you might lose some)
    Yes, Tomodachi life works fine on 2.5

    Nope, you won't lose anything by creating emunand.

    Copy the contents of your big sd card to your computer before formatting emunand. This includes most of your saved games. Copy it back to the card after formatting emunand.
