    I do apologize in advanced if this has already been addressed. My 3DS (US) is running 9.4.0-21U. Does Gateway support this? I'm really confused when people say emunand and sysnand. Again, I do apologize if this has already been addressed.

    nope, you're better off looking for a Sky3DS.

    Basically, sysnand is your system firmware, and that's what needs to be under 9.2 for Gateway to work. emunand is when you emulate the system firmware, so you can update that like you would your regular firmware.

    Gateway does not, and most likely will not for a very long time support any console running a firmware higher than 9.2.

    Emunand refers to the firmware version that can be run within gateway mode, not the version running on the console itself.

    No, it doesn't.

    FYI:

    sysnand = system firmware in hardware (before you exploit with Gateway)
    emunand = "emulated" system firmware on MicroSD card (after you exploit with Gateway)

    Thanks for the clarification guys. With that said, is Gateway a much better/popular choice? How are your experiences with the Sky3DS/Gateway?

    sky3ds is temporary, gateway is forever*

    * for old 3ds. New 3ds yet to be determined if encryption can be fixed.

    Hmm, please explain. I only have the 3DS, but do plan on purchasing an N3DS sometime in the future. So Sky3DS is going to be obsolete in the future?
