    okay say I have a9lh completely installed on my new 3ds with luma and fbi. I am on the latest firmware but I am going to get a gateway card so I can play ds and 3ds roms. Do I have to have emunand, or be on 9.2 still? If I do how do I do this exactly?

    You don't need a Gateway card to do what you wanna do.

    Download whatever cias you want and install them through FBI.
    Just be careful when installing cias and keep a nand backup saved away in a cloud storage website just in case anything screws up.

    Okay sweet, I thought I still had to get a gateway to play 3ds games.

    I have a backup of everything so far and have freeshop also, didn't know if I needed that

    Or if you have patience, you can wait until the nds-bootstrap-loader gets better with ROM compatibility to run NDS backups from your 3DS's SD card.

    Its in the thrid line of the FAQ of a9lh guide
    FreeShop can download 3ds games too.

    Provided you have a legit ticket AKA legally bought games.

    Please don't get a Gateway. Not only is it useless if you have A9LH, because you can already play 3DS games by installing CIA files or by using freeShop, but using Gateway with an A9LH sysNAND is an easy way to accidentally update and remove A9LH or brick.

    No you can use the encTitleKeys.bin from that title keys site. (in fact the cache only caches games on that site)

    FreeShop can be used to pirate games.

    google that title keys site and click the qr button on the first result.
    Scan with freeShop 2.X
