    You guys have been brilliant in helping me sort out and sound board unique situations in the past, and I was hoping I could brainstorm with this great community once more.

    So, I had a gateway and an old 3ds xl, got a new 3ds xl and that was fully upgraded unfortunately for a while. Well, now I have one on 9.7 and one on 9.0, both N3DS xl's.

    I've got a big trip coming up and I'd like to be able to go ahead and use my gateway. Most of my games are digital, so this is problematic. There's a long story involved with my first n3dsxl, but basically I had to lose all my saves due to a hardware malfunction that my system shipped with that Nintendo wouldn't repair.

    When I called them to transfer my license, games that I had created a backup save using the Nintendo provided app reloaded their saves just fine, which is super. So, here's my plan:

    1) on my 9.7 N3DSXL, I use the app from the eshop to backup my saves.

    2) on my 9.0 n3dsxl I use the gateway to create an emunand and then figure out how to update it to 9.5 (any thoughts on that would be super)

    3) I call Nintendo and request that they transfer the license to my 9.5 emunand (the tech I spoke to previously was able to transfer to a lower firmware as well)

    4) I spoof my 9.5 emunand to think it is 9.7, and then re-download all of my games.

    5) Profit!

    What do you guys think, solid plan? It's a bit round about, but there's really no telling when gateway is going to release 9.7 emunand support for the n3dsxl, and I'd like to get back to using my gateway :(

    EDIT

    Oh I see what you're saying; I don't think that would work though because my source system is 9.7 and target emunand is 9.5; it looks like on the list that 9.7 is only spoof compatible for transfer to a 9.6 or 9.7 firmware system.
