    Hey guys just got a new 3ds wondering how I could transfer my old gateway 3ds emunand to the new 3ds, preferably using the new a9lh 3ds boot...

    Grab an exploitable DSiWare game, set it up for downgrading and do a System Transfer of your EmuNAND to the new console.
    Not only will you perform a proper system transfer, you'll have a hax set up and ready for downgrading to 9.2 and setting up further stuff.

    Check out the plailect guide, particularly how to downgrade with DSiWare.

    Yes, after you downgrade, you would install A9LH, ideally.
    A system transfer is necessary to move the exploited DSiWare save over; it transferring your actual content would be a bonus.

    If you have Four Swords Anniversary, that would work.
    Otherwise, you'd need to get a copy of Legends of Exidia.

    It's worth noting that the DSiWare game used needs to be legitimate.
    Additionally, it would be a safe idea to back up any saves of CIA games you've installed.

    Anything on the Gateway card itself should be fine, but illegitimate digital content may require reinstallation in the end, and that may result in loss of saves.
    Check out the other threads on here for more info on this sort of thing (and Plailect's guide, of course)

    I see, is there no other way of exploiting the new 3ds? I feel like buying a dsi game just to use as an entry point is a bit of a waste

    The only ways in on 11.0+ (guaranteed on most new stuff, especially the Black Friday) are hardmod or DSiWare.
    If it turns out you have 10.7 somehow, then check Plailect's guide for how to downgrade from there.
    Otherwise, that's all there is.

    So let me get this 100% straight, Im going to go and buy the DSI game via old 3ds, real eshop. Then I some how edit the save file with a tutorial I guess.. and transfer the save file/game to the new 3ds with the 3ds system transfer tool?

    Yes; Plailect's guide ( https://3ds.guide/ ) has info on how to do this.
    DSiWare is able to downgrade NATIVE_FIRM but you need to get a hacked save into it; in this case from your already-hacked system plus transfer.

    You install it on wherever you're transferring from.
    If you're going to transfer your EmuNAND to the new system, then that's what you want to do, yes.

    Thanks for the help!

    Shoot one last thing, so when backing up my gateway/.cia saves im using JKSM save manager but is there an easier way to move it all at once? currently the save manager is very tedious for moving multiple saves

    Nah that's pretty much you're only option, yeah it sucks but better than losing all your saves. When you've transferred to your new console you'll be able to install all your gateway saved games as cia's and you won't even need your gateway, unless of course you wanna use it to play DS games (which you probably do)

    Ya well, im stuck on step 5. ( https://3ds.guide/dsiware-downgrade )

    Holding start on boot does nothing, could it be because Im using gateway/menuhax?

    You need to have arm9loaderhax installed to be able to boot into Hourglass9 by holding start on boot.

    Well jeez, the whole point of me opening this thread was so that I could do it with gateway........ ugh

    Ay, you said this would work with my old gateway setup, the tutorial says I need hourglass... ):X

    Eh?
    The only reference to hourglass9 I see is to backup and restore the NAND, as it assumes you use A9LH SysNAND and want it back once you're done.
    If you're using an EmuNAND, just use EmuNANDTool (or whatever modern equivalent) if you want to have a copy to restore back.
