    Ive had my 3ds set up with. Gateway for awile now. I just picked up another for $75 with cib smash bros and pokemon y. I plan on selling the games to lower my cost.

    My question is can i use 1 gateway to be able to play games. With my wife.


    And also. Can i. Just put my emunnand sd card in the 3ds i just. Baught. With the gateway cart and have it load up exactly the same as my old 3ds (i plan on giving my wife the red one i was using before and keeping the black one i just picked up.

    No, you can't use the same emunand for a different console. emunand is a copy of your system NAND and each NAND is unique to its own console. So you can't share it between consoles.

    As for using GW with 2 consoles, you always need to have the red card inserted when booting into GW Mode, so unless you always leave it in standby, you'll have to put the red card there eventually again.

    Best way for you is to use GW in one console and use a CFW like rxTools in the other.

    if you use cia's rather than .3ds files you can just use the gateway card to boot into emunand and then you can take it out and put it somewhere in case batteries die.

    so i can set up emunand and wile booted into emunand take out the cart and still use cias to play against each other.

    if i went the cfw route id still need the cart to boot it or no?

    CFW don't use any card so no, you wouldn't need it. And yes, you can take out the GW card after booting and still be able to play CIA games.

    Why would you want to do a system transfer?
