    Hello everyone, I'm struggeling with converting my gateway saves to my Luma3DS system, I tried to follow MattKimura tutorial but since i'm in 11.14 I can't use my gateway anymore...
    Can someone help me convert them so I can be able to use them on my Luma3DS system please ?
    I don't know how I can make them to work in my Luma3DS system after that, I have Checkpoint app, is it enough ?

    Kind regards
    Aty.

    I would love to find this out also. Are your saves gateway rom saves? I know the save manager never worked for me (in the gateway menu).

    The saves have been done with a 4.5 emunand using gateway (red cartridge) and now my 3DS is in 11.14 I cannot use gateway anymore. Anyway even if I was able to use my gateway, the gateway saves are particular and I didn't know that (they seem to be crypted somehow) and I can't use them on Luma3DS wich have different save format. Any help is welcome :)

    You can create an emuNAND and downgrade it so you can use the Gateway with the emuNAND. Out of curiosity, what are the games, and are they all important enough to be converted?

    Hello and thx for your reply, about the "emunand" term, I think I'm a bit confused, doesn't emunand stands for the nand installed on the sd card inserted in the red gateway ? If it's this, then I tried but my gateway refuse to "boot" on my 3DS since my 3DS is in version 11.14 and it seems it cannot boot my red gateway anymore (I tried and I almost bricked my Luma3DS sysnand by doing so).
    About the game saves, yes they are quite important, well for me of course, the most importants are an ocarina of time save with a good progression, and the second important save is a bravely default save, with also a quite good progression. Thing is, those games I have saves of are 7 years old saves, I wanted to play them again as well as a new game "fire emblem fates" but since this last one wasn't compatible with my 4.5 firmware (locked on 3DS launch splashscreen once I tried to execute it from my gateway) then I've read this game is only compatible with at least 10.3 firmware, that what leads me to upgrade my 3DS to a more "recent" type of custom firmware and get rid of gateway, thing is, it was never mentionned about the crypted gateway saves and I discovered, of course, after upgrading my 3DS to 11.14 + last Luma3DS sysnand that my gateway saves weren't in same format and unusable on luma... that's why I'm asking for any help to convert them for luma3ds sysnand ^^

    Emunand is a partition made separate from the sysnand which was used for keeping lower firmwares to run gateway properly. you need a firmware of less than 11.3 to run the gateway without worries. 9.2.0 was always a popular one when emunands werent obsolete.

    As I said in my previous post, if you make an emuNAND on something like 9.2.0, you can use it with Gateway, even if your sysNAND isn't compatible with Gateway anymore because its system version is too high. I have an SD card lying around my home office somewhere with an 11.2 emuNAND just for the purpose of converting save games for other people, but since you still have your Gateway cartridges, you can do it yourself.

    I'd use a second SD card for this like I did, just so you don't have to deal with formatting and reformatting your primary SD card. On the second SD card, make a compatible emuNAND using GodMode9, do a CTRTransfer to downgrade it to 9.2.0 or something, and then dump the save files.

    Thank you for your reply !
    Thing is, I have spent around 3 days to make my 3DS working on my actual sysnand and I don't want to mess it all again (yes, I did failed several times...) I'm very bad at custom firmware on 3DS because I find it very difficult (compared to PSP were it was peace of cake compared to this).
    How to make a compatible emunand since I don't have any other 3DS with lower firmware ? I only have my actual old 3DS 11.14 and that's pretty much it :( or I don't understand how those godmode9 and ctrtransfer work... Like I said, I'm really afraid about messing everything up and don't want to take any more risk (joke appart, my wife was almost about to leave me after I've spent so much time on it :rofl:)
    Or is there any tutorial to follow for this ?
    About hardwares I have, I still have an empty SD card, the blue gateway and the red gateway, in my possession.
