Hello, soon I'm gonna get my Gateway card and besides reading like a hundred topics I still couldn't really figure out what happens when you copy your SysNAND to EmuNAND regarding the retention of your content. Differences/explanation/...? 1. When you're on SysNAND on 4.x or 8.x/9.x 2. Dealing with CARD1- and CARD2-games 3. Using Gateway-mode/Classic-mode 4. Using SaveDataFiler 5. Do I need Xorpads/FunkyCIA? I'm not asking what these things are (apart from 4./5.), but what will happen in a certain situation regarding our content. So if I'm on SysNAND firmware 8.1, I read I'll be unable to use the savegames on Gateway with Gateway-mode, because it uses a different encryption. That's what I want someone to clarify. What content am I able to keep? What will work with injectors or alike, ... __________________ Some people said things like "just clone your SysNAND to EmuNAND and everything will work just fine", others said that they had to re-download everything and savegames were gone. So now I'm really confused on what to do when my Gateway arrives. What I'm especially unsure with is the eShop itself. From what I understood you backup your EmuNAND, format it, re-inject it, do this whole unlinking-stuff and you should be fine. But what if Nintendo changes the update-mechanism and forces eShop-users to update their firmware? And like I said, some people said their purchases no longer worked after being transferred from SysNAND to EmuNAND (first step). Thank you very much. Now I'm even more confused. Retail Pokemon OR/AS on emunand? Retail saves on gateway 3.0.1 - #1 Retail saves on gateway 3.0.1 - #2 These people managed to dump their retail saves to use them in Gateway-mode. I thought this wasn't possible due to the encryption? Can someone please answer these questions? Just look here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/gateway-downgrading.378195/ If this is the case. Why are people in those other threads say something completely different?
