    Hi guys,

    first sorry for this question because I think the answer is in this forum but I didn't find it.

    I currently have a N3DS (non-XL) and it has a 9.0 or 9.2 firmware and I use it either with reinand or gateway

    I would like to buy another N3DS so the question is simple :

    Which is the most recent firmware that allows me to use both reinand and gateway
    Until which firmware I can downgrade to 9.2 without hardmod

    thanks for your help and sorry again for this repeated question

    Fred

    Gambia, The
    11.2 is what you are looking for. 9.2 is put to date. 11.2 also has a k9 exploit and also let you use gateway alonside auroras a9lh and luma, just get a 3ds on 11.3 and do Plailects guide.

    with 11.4 you are SoL

    Thanks for your answer

    brunormalmeida: I'm currently using Reinand because it has no option and does what I need : boot on emunand with region free, I currently use only legit cartridge game so it's enough to me, and CIA works as well

    I bought a new New 3DS (great offer in France and I hate the XL model) : I believe that the firmware is 9.8 (New 3DS dragon ball edition) what is the best way to do what I need : boot on emunand for region free (and CIA if needed) be able to launch gateway if needed : it would be good to go on using CTR manager

    I downgrade to 9.2 ? or upgrade to 11.2 : then how to do it ?

    Follow this guide to install B9S (Boot9Strap) on your New 3DS to boot Custom Firmware.
    Make sure to follow each step exactly as it says. Do not skip out on any parts.
    Don't be afraid to ask us for help.

    Also, you no longer need EmuNAND anymore. You can use your SysNAND safely, with B9S (Boot9Strap).

    Neither
    If you have 9.8 then you can just proceed with installing boot9strap from there
    Just follow the instructions in 3ds.guide

    Yes, I'm pretty sure the guide tells you to anyway.

    I followed 3DS guide my son's 2DS and ir worked like a charm.

    I have a last question (perhaps silly one) : can I dump an original cart to a CIA and use it online ?

    I do not support piracy and buy all my games but I use CFW to download CIA and have all game on the SD card : but was wondering if I can dump from original and keep the possibility to play online. My son is 4 years old and prefer to keep cart safe.

    another question : can I access the eshop safely ?

    thanks

    Just to be 100% sure

    The dump realized from my cart are playable online as I'm playing it online from my genuine cart, I do not risk the ban ?

    Same question for local multiplayer? (Mario kart 7)

    Can I dump the save file from the original cart and inject it in the CIA and do the opposite way as well ?

    No one is 100% sure what information causes a ban. Just having CFW is probably enough. So you risk a ban no matter what you do. Yes you can dump the save file from your cartridge and import it into the cia version.

    Could you please tell me which tools to use in order to transfer saves, or perhaps a tutorial ?

    Use JKSM. You can install it using FBI's TitleDB feature. Once you open it it should be fairly self explanatory to import or export saves from installed games or cartridges but if you need help let us know.
