    Hi there, I just dumped my own private online header, just want to ask some questions. I am on version 9.2:-

    1. IS there any chance that Nintendo might do so that we have to update our console and then only we can access internet on 3ds? If so, what is the best option to do now to run Gateway?

    2. I have played Pokemon and some other games without header, so, when I just put the header on that rom, I think the save file will get corrupted. So, what I can I do to retain my save? And, can I do the same method on all games?

    3. Is there any way, after creating emunand to retain saves of legitimate (cias) ?

    4. If I would have to downgrade, what do you think should I do first, create emunand and then downgrade or vice-versa?

    5. Can Nintendo see that whether we are using DS Profile Exploit when on Sysnand 4.5?

    6. After creating and unlinking the Sysnand and Emunand, does the friend code changes?

    Thanks for anyone answering my questions. :) It would be really appreciated. :D

    1: No one knows. But Pokemon and some other games now check to see if you're running the latest system software before letting you go online.

    2: You would use SaveDataFiler to backup your .3ds saves and inject then into the .3DZ versions.


    3: emuNAND is a complete copy of your sysNAND so any legitimate .cias you have will work on it, just backup your entire SD card before formatting.

    4: Create emuNAND, then downgrade.

    5: No.

    6: Friend code stays the same on emuNAND.

    Thank you really very much for your answers. Just some questions arise:-

    1. Can I use Savedatafilter to backup 3dz save and then inject in into another 3dz game? And does this method works for all the games?
    2. To backup SD Card, I just need to copy paste it somewhere safe right, and after creating emunand, how to restore backup, again just copy paste it on sd card? It will also help to retain my games?
    3. So, it is safe to use DS Profile Exploit since Nintendo can't see it?
    4. Can I downgrade limited edition consoles even which came out in v6.2?

    Thanks once again for answering these questions. :)

    1: Yes, just be sure to delete the secure data for the ROM before importing the other .3DZ save.

    2: A simple copy/paste will restore your games and saves.

    3: Yes.

    4: Yes (But only OG 3DS and 3DS XL) be sure to make a sysNAND backup first.

    1. For Card 1 saves you could rename the file on the SD card. For card 2 saves, I don't think it's possible without converting. Why would you want to do so?
    2. Yes, but you won't be able to use any of that data in emunand unless you've either made that emunand directly from the sysnand the SD was used on (initial Format Emunand from GW menu) or done a system transfer.
    3. Yes, but downgrading from 9.2 carries its own risks. Might want to give this a read.
    4. Yes, the hardware is all the same. The shell is incidental.

    I thought card-1 .3DZ saves are tied to the header? so just renaming them would case a mismatch with the ROM right?

    The only issues that arise from downgrading is if the OP ever ran a 6.x+ encryption game on sysNAND and wants to continue using it on Gateway.

    Um.. Can you tell me what is secure data of a rom, thanks. :)

    So, to be able to use that data on emunand, what shall I do? Thanks.

    In SaveDataFiler when you highlight the "CTR Card" line you are presented with these options.

    X: Revert to Factory Default
    Y: export this user save data to SD card
    R+Y: export this secure value to SD card
    R+X: delete this secure value

    To use your pre-existing cia games and saves you just need to back up your SD card to the computer, when you create an emuNAND Gateway has to wipe your SD and make a hidden partition with a copy of your sysNAND on it, which will work with your files you backed up after copying them back onto the card.

    Some questions;-

    1. After downgrading, when using DS profile Exploit, Do I need blue card every time to run the exploit? If I do not want to run the exploit via internet?
    2. Can I use my saves of 6.x encryption on 4.x console?

    Thanks for answering in advance. :D

    Ok. Thanks. So, if I just downgrade my console, I would not be able to use the saves of 6.x encryption of eshop games on 4.x console neither the Gateway saves? But, Can I use them and the Gateway games saves by using savedatafilter?

    A very simple google search would help you with your last question actually.

    I do know how to downgrade, my last question was this:- If I just downgrade my console, I would not be able to use the saves of 6.x encryption of eshop games on 4.x console neither the Gateway saves? But, Can I use them and the Gateway games saves by using savedatafilter?
