    The guide doesn't cover downgrading to 9.2 anymore as it isn't needed.

    Yes,
    but install A9HL. (follow the whole guide)

    What @Quantumcat try to say is,
    There was a part in the guide to downgrade to 9.2, but it's gone now since it isn't necessary any more.

    Instead, follow the full guide, that's my first link to start with.
    Than when this is successful, use my second link to make your Gateway card work again.

    I know it takes some time but you will be better of after the process.
    - You will be able to use your Gateway card on sysnand 11.2. That means you can use your gateway card on the newest version of the 3DS instead of 4.5 or 9.2!
    - You will get the possibility to install games to your 3DS system (sd card) instead to the Gateway card.
    - After taking a nand backup (this is one of the many steps in the guide), you will be able to restore the 3DS system in many cases.

    Sell your gateway to some sucker (keep the blue card). Then follow plailect's guide linked in this thread.

    I think he's talking about the Gateway Ultra era, where they cracked 9.2 and the new 3ds. Gateway was still the top dog back then before cfw took over.

    Letting his son use Gateway sysNAND will guaranteed result in accidental updates, and Gateway has no FIRM protection which means he will lose A9LH or brick the console. Best stick to emuNAND.

    Install A9LH + Luma and then opt for emunand setup. Seeing as he's handing his son a gateway, it's probably going to be used for piracy, so instead install freeshop or tikdevil bundled with that titlekeysite on emunand and let your kid have fun in freeshop/eshop. Again, ditch gateway, it's only going to be a bother.

    DO NOT USE YOUR GATEWAY WITH YOUR SYSNAND! IT DOES NOT HAVE FIRM0/1 PROTECTION! YOU WILL BRICK WHEN YOU UPDATE! I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!

    Seriously, ditch the Brickwait and get a real CFW
    Follow the guide

    That's not what I meant, I mean he could use his gateway while his system is on 11.2.
    As in the Gateway card is now also compatible with 11.2 instead of 4.5-9.2.
    As he follow the guide in my second link, they stress them enough on this.
    That's general knowledge.

    I'm pretty sure he already got an emunand since he use gateway.

    You CAN use Gateway in sysnand but NEVER UPDATE.
    Update while you are using luma.

    @baefisch3 :
    As for ctrtransfer, it's probably a torrent file. You need a torrent client. BitTorrent, uTorrent,...)

    The problem is not him but his son. He most probably already told him not to update sysNAND when they were on 4.5, and now they're on 9.9 so he did and would most probably do it again.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
    A case like this where the OP's child already updated, they should stick a free CFW. What the OP should do, is install A9LH, update A9LH, then cram Luma3DS into the CTRNAND. That way the system is always safe to update.
    Then sell the cart someone to make a few extra dollars.

    That's a magnet link. Download uTorrent or some other torrent client.

    As everyone has said, you should follow this guide to install A9LH and Luma3DS: https://3ds.guide/

    Once you're done, we recommend ditching Gateway since it can cause more problems than it's worth, and CFW can do just about everything a Gateway can.

    That all being said, if you just have to use it, we can walk you through how to use Gateway emuNAND after you're done setting up A9LH/Luma3DS following the above guide.
