Having both ReiNAND and Gateway 3DS, is there any reason for me to boot into Rei?

    I have both Rei and Gateway on the latest version Emunand. Is there any reason for me to boot into Rei rather than Gateway? Is there anything it can do that Gateway can't? Performance wise does it run better than Gateway on certain things such as emulators?

    You really only need Reinand as a backup for if you forget your red card and accidentally turn off your system while out and about.
    Edit: i think you can't use GBA games while on gateway mode.

    I would say 90% of the games in cia are RF though so it's not a real problem

    1. Are you talking about installed .cia GBA games or GBA emulators as well? Do installed .cia GBA games even run that well? People have recommended gpsp over it.

    2. So performance wise Rei doesn't have anything over Gateway? They perform exactly the same?

    That's more of a reason NOT to use Rei! lol. I'm asking if there is a reason I should boot Rei instead of Gateway.

    No, not really. If you have Gateway, use that.

    I'm afraid I don't understand you. RF? Are you referring to 90% of cia games when they're installed onto the system?

    Like i said there isn't really. Gateway will do 99% of what you need, and if it doesn't you can just use a homebrew that does it or get a different CFW.

    Most CIA games have been edited to work on CFW that don't have region free built in.
