    To be safe, I've been turning off the system inbetween backing up cartridge saves, but this will take forever at this rate. Dumb question, but just to be safe: Can I swap cartridges while in the gateway launcher?

    Yep. The 3DS is designed to handle swapping out carts while on (hot). why else would the home menu allow hotswapping of carts (provided your not running what is on the cart) and not act like the DS Lite and freeze or throw an error like how the Wii U does when you unplug a USB drive from it while it is on.
