    I recently ordered a Gateway and am wondering if I should downgrade to 4.x with it, my 3DS FW is 9.2.0-20U. The main thing keeping me from doing it is the 4.x and 6.x key save problem. Is there a list of games that use 4.x and list of 6.x games to help me decide if downgrading is worth it? Thoughts appreciated and thanks :)

    Absolutely, the kernel exploit is a lot more convenient to boot into EmuNAND.

    The main games I don't want to lose progress on are Pokémon X/Y and OR/AS.

    Those use 6.x

    If your saves are important, stay on your current version, otherwise you may as well downgrade.
    You can continue using the browser exploit on downgraded consoles for better exploitness, or use the less better ds mode touch the screen a million times and never use a ds game again exploit.
    4.5 has some other benefits, ranging from being able to format update nags away, and being more distinguishable due to no themes, no miiverse, etc. Pretty much less ability for you to become confused and update the wrong nand in your confusion.

    Is there a good site where I can download 3DS saves for use with Gateway? Also, I ordered both the Gateway and a DSTwo. Is it somewhat easy to switch between using them?
