    Without knowing which firmware you have it's kinda hard to give you advice. Assuming you don't have CFW installed yet, don't update to the latest version!
    Follow 3ds.guide and see if you can get Boot9Strap and Luma3DS installed. I don't think there's really an advantage to having a Gateway anymore, but some people still use them so they might be able to give better advice. Nowadays most people just install whatever they want to play directly to their home menu using CIA installers like FBI, or they use FreeShop.

    Back again, well I recently bought a new 2ds XL, I only have 1 game that has a save I want backed up, where is it though? Its been so long that I used Gateway all I can find on the microsd card is my games, are the saves on the system sd card?

    Did you play the game with Gateway? In that case you need to follow https://gbatemp.net/threads/importing-gateway-saves-to-cia-games.425743/
    If it was played with Gateway the save file will be on the root of your SD card.

    Yep played with Gateway when I used it ages ago, was going to check but there seems to be a issue, just thought at same time as updating the launcher I would take the saves off it

    So I have the saves now apart from my Pokemon one which seems a nightmare as the guide seems a bit confusing.

    IIRC, Pokemon games have the save file stored onto the actual rom file.

    Yeah, the guides were confusing, I was unclear if I need to mount the game in Gateway, then use that save manager to back it up or something else
