    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:

    If this is the case. Why are people in those other threads say something completely different?
