    If I use a gateway from a friend on my 3DS to install .cia files is possible that without the gateway they will run?

    This when the 9.X software were out.

    I'm gonna go ahead and make an educated guess.

    No.

    Doesn't gateway need the card inside to boot into emuNAND? If that's the case then no, you won't be able to access those games after you reset the console.

    If I understand correctly you can do stuff on 4.5 fw without gateway, with just the launcher, but that stuff is limited. With gateway you have access to emunand 9.2 which allows for better .cia to be installed. I think at this point you can remove the gateway card if I am not mistaken and stay this way indefinitely, but if a game freezes or power is lost, gateway will be needed again to get into emunand. I would get a gateway if I was you.
