    I didn't want to create a new thread but couldn't find after searching here and reddit.

    I currently have a N3DS with gateway and EmuNAND all setup nicely, i have generated my own OTP using the guide from the FAQ but still sticking with EMuNAND for now...

    So my questions for i jump:

    1. Am i able to install A9L and configure it to auto boot into EmuNAND (thus allowing me to use gateways ROM selector)
    2. If i cannot do this, i have seen this post and they appear to have a CFW (luma3ds i think) and support the gateway menu?

    Appreciate any guidance :)

    Don't use emuNAND. And they're working on a way to boot gateway from A9LH

    Did you miss the whole part where he already has emunand and probably many games already installed?... I myself would rather keep emunand and all the content installed than re-install everything all over again...

    but A9LH doesn't overwrite..... it literally restores the original emuNAND backup

    Just read this thread, all the information is in it to be able to use A9LH to boot directly into GW, or set a button to then boot into CFW on power on.

    I have done this myself and it seems to work well so far.

    I'm stuck on 4.5 thanks to a9lh
    don't fucking do it (unless you have a super high quality sd card with 0% chance of file corruption)

    You're just one of few people. Just buy a good store quality sd.

    Why would he have to reinstall the games...? Just swap NANDs and use sysNAND.

    Wait, didn't you try to downgrade sysNAND to 1.0?

    I would if I was at home, not currently. I just did this:

    http://gbatemp.net/threads/the-status-of-gateway-and-a9lh.427889/page-15#post-6385681

    Later when I am home if you don't have it I can post the payloads I used. I have it so my units boot GW by default and if A is held down it boots into CFW.

    Actually I was able to grab a copy of the files I used in the above link.

    With this you should have enough to do what I did if you follow what I said in that link

    Just make sure to put whichever payload_stage1.bin you prefer (start or A or B) into a9hl folder before updating a9hl.
